bad video on Toshiba R55-S1063
« on: June 12, 2014, 02:42:56 pm »
Toshiba R55-S1063 laptop (Russian version, closest thing can find to it is usually A55-S1063, whose drivers worked on XP)

Greetings all.  I lost the connection to SSD again (after 1 1/2 years of service after last repair-disconnect/reconnect) on AAO ZG5 and may have damaged the motherboard when tried to fix it- still no contact. Maybe tonight I'll try again- bought new 40mm ZIF cables, if anyone needs one.

Anyway- Peppermint4 was working so swimmingly as LIVE disc after probable evil Russian hackers trashed my WinXP on this old computer that company gave me- 2 seconds Wifi in Press Center  and blue screen crash shutoff..

So I decided to put Peppermint 4 on it for traveling Wifi, but the video is horrible-garish and too hot, and Flash doesn't display except as washed out small box. I installed it with Ethernet on- "download and install all updates + drivers" . Video worked fine as live disk I think, so either its some conflict between video players, plugins, or VIDEO DRIVER, which I never consciously installed. Any thoughts on how to fix it?  I did installed VLC and the plugin, but little other VIDEO. Then I tried to reinstall Flash plugin and installed some Flash console.

First can you stop posting links to your blogspot .. it's nothing to do with Linux or this topic so is bordering on spam.
(set it as your website in your profile if you wish .. but not directly in postings)

Now can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C display
and if using Peppermint:
Code: [Select]
inxi -F
and remember, Linux commands ARE case sensitive.

I know you haven't posted anything in 6 months but what has that got to do with anything ? .. does that somehow earn you the right to ignore the forum rules ? .. if anything it gives you LESS right.

This is not the first time I've had to tell you the rules,  this forum is NOT a place for you to advertise and/or try to increase your google ranking with back links .. stick to the rules (and remove that link), or don't post, end of story.

Calling me names and claiming some sort of privilege is also unlikely go get me to provide assistance...

Hint -

The correct response would have been .. "Sorry, I'll remove the link"
