Specs: window 7, 2.4/4
Hi! it's me again! I am a beginner who uses Ubuntu. My problem is some drivers like wi-fi , bluetooth, VGA and so on, they don work after I install Ubuntu 10.10 as dual-boot with windows 7. I cannot use internet to update driver.How can I solve it?when I connect windows 7 and my ubuntu via RJ-45, it starts configuration,but it shows "wired is dissconnected".
anyone can share web site that tell how to use Ubuntu?
**Note: my pc is Dell Inpiron 5110 cpu core I5 2nd,ram =4GB, VGA=intel + nvidia adapter.

✔ Best Answer
You probably need Ubuntu 11.10 as that version is certified compatible with Dell Inspiron N5110

You are using an earlier version so that might be the problem. See this;

Uninstall Ubuntu 10.10, wipe it's partition, reformat as NTFS, then combine that partition with the Win7 partition. Then download Ubuntu 12.4 LTS or 12.10 & install it by using the Wubi installer (no separate partition is required).

Some drivers in Ubuntu are not supported, take nvidia and amd for example they dont really make drivers for Ubuntu the best option for a laptop to use Ubuntu is to have intel for graphics as ive tested 3 laptops with intel and Ubuntu worked wayyy better than a laptop with AMD or Nvidia based graphics.
Note that some drivers are supported for SOME graphics chips, make sure to check with manufacturers website for propietary drivers, if not use the open source ones.
Although i would recommend downloading 12.04 and upgrading to 12.10

computers are a second home

"take nvidia and amd for example they dont really make drivers for Ubuntu"

That's just not true. There are perfectly good drivers for NVidia and AMD graphics cards. You can use the one built in to Linux for NVidia or download a proprietary one from the NVidia web site. I'm not so familiar with the AMD drivers as I don't have an AMD graphics card. But rest assured they work just fine with Linux.

Sure they do:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownlo...

The problem is, most people don't know how to install the drivers. You really don't need to get them from the AMD or NVIDIA sites anyway.
