comment Getting wireless to work on Ubuntu 11.10 (on a mac machine)
@H_7 was just trying to help and that was the only solution I found. Perhaps 'shot in the dark' was the wrong term, but I was implying it may not work exactly as in the tutorial as the article was written about an HP, rather than MacBook, even though it was the same wireless chipset.

comment Dell precision M4600 stuck at last stage of reboot
Could you try noapic instead of acpi=off and see if you experience different symptoms? I only ask because I found this thread on a Dell mailing list searching around for you: lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/linux-precision/2011-July/…

comment Ubuntu killed all settings, messed windows 7
Unless you formatted your Windows partition, installing Ubuntu would not affect any settings within Windows. Perhaps it was a coincidence that you experienced your Windows problems around the same time.

comment nvidia-settings not working properly
I had another thought as well - if it's working via the LiveCD it is working without the proprietary Nvidia Drivers loaded (which you have loaded if you are using nvidia-xconfig or nvidia-settings. Perhaps you can try uninstalling those drivers just to see if your second monitor works, and then go from there (re-installing the drivers, running nvidia-settings with gksu).
