Need somebody to fix my laptop - Ubuntu drama

Recommended Posts

Dear All, I wanted to install version 17 of Ubuntu from a DVD and something went very, very wrong. Now I can't even see my desktop. The laptop is screwed up.

I need somebody familiar enough with Linux to undo whatever I've done and re-install Ubuntu from another source, without of course wiping out the files inside. I suppose this post was more suitable for the classifieds section, but the computer services listing looks very sad with zero posts.

I will of course pay for your time.

Please contact me if you can help.

Thanks,

vic

Where are you located? 

 

  It's very easy to do the install alone. Please see:

  https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-install-ubuntu-desktop#0

 

   You can download the files and create a bootable memory stick or thumb drive, a CD does the trick as well.

Once you've created the media, just use the command to choose your boot device and boot from the memory stick.

 

  It's usually F 12, depending on the model. Please feel free to get back if you encounter problems. 

 

  P.S. First, please take the CD out and boot from your hard drive by choosing F 12, or the command to choose the booting media. 

 

  It might restart without problems without the CD if it's on autorun.
