    Some other poor schmuck tried to upgrade to Ubuntu. I feel sorry for him.
    Look at the responses. He needs to enter more cryptic line commands. If
    only he stuck with Windows then he wouldn't be so FUCKED.

    Oops.

    You should look up the meaning of the word cryptic.

    Why ? I didn't see that he tried the standard windows behaviour
    of re-installing the video drivers.

    How many Windows users have come here saying they've got a black
    screen, and the advise was to open a command prompt and type:
    explorer.exe and press enter.

    Oh My God!!!!! A command line in Windows...what is this world
    coming to ?!?!?!!?

    They don't need to enter a command to use explorer. They can double click
    the icon. Oops.

    With Ubuntu, quite a few "fixes" require line commands and not clicking on
    an ICON. As I said, most users would be better of using Windows to get real
    work done.

    I haven't used a command line in Ubuntu for YEARS. Type the Win Key+R
    and then type cmd.exe if you want to run command lines in Windows. Or is
    it there just for grins and has no useful features? Why is it there,
    Nymshifter?

    You have just proven you are a complete jackass.....and it is
    you that lack reading comprehension....

    Do I need to explain it to you ?

    OK.

    The Windows user PC boots up and it is a black screen. The
    cursors there, but nothing else. Got it so far ?

    Tell me, how do they start Explorer from an icon on the
    desktop, or a start menu, if explorer is not started and
    didn't create the desktop icons and start menu/taskbar ?

    This is just too easy....like picking on a retarded kid.
