comment How to update my BIOS
@André: What? Nowadays computers can't even boot from floppies (or even run DOS if they could boot) so that doesn't even make sense. I've updated my BIOS myself a handful of times with the manufacturer-provided program. There's no reason not to do it from Windows, as long as the program is written properly it will work. (WINE is something else entirely, though.)

comment Change touchpad horizontal and vertical acceleration/sensitivity?
@TheRookierLearner: You could try to play around with settings by using the program xinput, maybe it'll work for you.

comment How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)
"When you install Windows, Windows assumes it's the only OS on the machine--or at least it doesn't account for Linux." So this is Windows's fault? Isn't Linux the one that always overwrites the MBR with GRUB and yells at you if you try to install it to a partition boot sector instead?
