I'm currently attempting ot repurpose a Dell Inspiron 1200 as a multimedia center using LUbuntu 14.04. I am trying to get the laptop to use a VGA display, but the display has a default resolution of 1280x1024, which is much higher than the laptop display at 1024x768. Because of this XBMC displays in a corner unless I load LXDE first and then load XBMC through the program launcher because I set the external to 1024x768 manually. I want the computer to autolaunch XBMC, either fullscreen as the default X display envorronment or through LXDE as a startup application. Any ideas?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
