24 hours ago I start using for the first time Ubuntu 14.10. I tried to install AMD GPU drivers and then I install from the terminal the fglrx and after a restart I got the

The system is running in low-graphics mode

error. I tried to fix it but nothing.

I don't have any data to care if I lose it.

Can I format the laptop from the terminal Ctrl+Alt+F1 and after install Ubuntu again? I can't change the Boot Priority from the UEFI/BIOS because I can't disable the Secure Boot for some reason.

I'm new user and I don't know much about ubuntu so excuse me.


Just start over from scratch: Boot the LiveDVD/USB, erase everything and re-install. That will "format" the laptop…

Low quality reviewers: OP asks how to "format" his laptop… Nothing more to say, really! ;)
