    Hi Bazza
    you are not alone with having issues with ubuntu 12.04 as it has some bugs in it.
    i tried for weeks to resolve a few and gave up and went back to 10.10 as it was such a pain.
    so you could do as i do now buy a book with the software so you have some guidance as how to fix it.
    current one is 12.10 with 13.04 still in the beta version which too could have issues.

    A friend once told me that the secret of "before and after" photographs lies in taking the "after" picture before the "before" one.

    Un amigo me dijo una vez que el secreto de las fotos de "antes y después" está en sacar la foto de "después" antes que la de "antes".

    This splendid photograph was shared by Craig Blair (North Lake Senior Campus, WA Australia) and I have been given permission to reproduce it again here.

    This collection of computer hardware spans over two decades and much of it is still in use or made usable with new operating systems. This is more than just an effort to catalog and classify junk, it is a great historical sounding board for his students. It raises some good questions about the pandemic of afluenza sweeping our word, the power of computer recycling and the value of digital archives. Bravo Craig.

    He indicates that his collection has the following items:

    * Apple Blueberry G3 – student find. Replaced HD and works well – for in class use
    * MacPlus – I found – works a treat… just reinstalling the OS at the moment – for in class use
    * Apple G3 – Staff find. not a lot except the 1.5 GB of RAM – haven’t got much further with this yet.
    * Pentium III 900 MHz – student find. put in 20 Gig harddrive, installed ubuntu and gave to senior for surfing the net… very happy customer
    * Pentium IV 1.2GHz – I found. dual monitor card. 2 hardrives, 2 monitors (17 inch). Works just fine… sitting at my house as my only Desktop PC in the house… (very rarely used…)
    * Pentium P166 – student find – cd burner, windows 98. very quick machine… given to a student from lower socio-economic area who now uses it for recording music…. etc… very very happy customer
    * Pentium III – I found – 800 MHz – came with DVD player, CD burner. Reinstalled Ubuntu and use this machine for burning ubuntu onto students external harddrives
    * Commodore 64 – donated by a prac student
    * XT – something I have had for awhile
    * Microbee – something I have had for awhile
