I am wondering if I got a differenty sound card (nVidia of some denomination) and disabled this OEM card, would I be able to install then? And if so, what graphics card could I use to replace this one and upgrade. Driver is updated and current.
Specs for my Compaq:
Intel Celeron D. 3.4 Ghz with, I believe 533Gh front side bus
Graphics card---Intel 82945G Express Chipset Family
Min. Graphics Memory-8mb
Max. graphics memory-256mb
ACPI x86 based pc.
Hard disk --160 Gb, 40 of which is recovery partition D
Network Adapter--Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller
Please let me know if you need any more info. OH, BIOS version is American Megatrends Inc., 5.18, 8/24/2007. SMBIOS version 2.4.
I am running Vista Home Basic, which came on the machine.
I would appreciate input about the graphics card, and also if you have any different ideas about why the pc hangs up and won't run Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Live or Install CD
Sorry this was so long. Thought as much info as possible might help you help me! Thanks.
I would appreciate, also, a recommendation for a graphics card that IS compatible with Linux Ubuntu, if you have such info.
