So, no more dual screens... and to top that, when I shut down the machine to troubleshoot I didnt realise that I had accepted a kernel update and so when I rebooted.. no internet!! Now that's a kick in the nuts (if i had nut's, im sure thats what it would feel like!)
After and hour of frusterated googling on the windows machine, i finally figured it out... phew! i thought i'd have to reinstall.. hate that!
Ubuntu detected the card (
sudo lspci | grep -i ethernet) but
sudo ifconfigwas just showing 'lo' and no 'eth0'.
When I tried a
sudo ifconfig eth0 upi would get an error.
SIOCSIFADDR: No such device
eth0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device
sudo network-adminOR Click on System-->Administration-->Networking
You will get a window with networking setup options on it..
Click 'Ethernet Connection'
Enable the connection. Save.
Activate the connection!
Phew..... Moral of the Story: Beware the kenel updates! (and Beware the good deeds)
Need to track down Mach Speed Motherboards for warranty.. grrrr...
