I am new to Linux and I'm having several issues with my version of Ubuntu 14.04LTS 64-bit.
computer info: ASUS x200m touchscreen 11.6" original os: windows 8 current os: ubuntu 14.04lts 64-bit
I can only use my computer by logging in through recovery mode. If I simply allow the computer to automatically boot up, then after the menu page, I hear the startup sound but the screen turns black.
Everything is too big for the screen; the resolution is too large but the settings can't be altered in a way that would fit the screen better.
I want to change the unity menu to one that more resembles a Window's-style menu but I do not know how to do this.
I am continuously getting pop-ups asking me whether or not I want to stop the script. I don't even know what this means but it is very annoying.
I am getting popups when using certain websites especially google and facebook which I think may indicate a virus but I didn't think this was possible with Linux.
Any help with any of these questions would be GREATLY appreciated!!
