My computing experience dates back to the eighties when DOS was brand new and home machines ran on CP/M. From building my own systems I have some understanding in hardware and other complicated things but it is my believe that an OS has to be easy to use and to configure. That's why I use Ubuntu.

comment Lost partition table on Flash drive, TestDisk and PhotoRec do nothing
This may also be a hardware issue of the flash drive. You should now immediately (!) try to recover the files from the computer they were on before they were moved to the flash drive. Immediately, and ideally from a live system, because with every usage of this computer's drive more and more files will be overwritten and then will not be recoverable.

comment I really don't know what the actual problem is…It's been bugging me since 2 days
Welcome to Ask Ubuntu. To get an answer you need to make the most of your question. Be as specific as possible. At present there is not much we can see to help you. Choose a title that better reflects your issue, and give us all details on your Ubuntu version, applications affected, graphics card, and drivers installed. Screenshots can be uploaded to imgur.com. Then you just need to post a link to the upload. Somebody with a higher reputation will enable the display on your post for you.
