Connection issues w/Ubuntu 10.4
Hey there everyone. New here, and new to Linux. So here's my deal (Sorry for my lack of knowledge, this happened a couple months ago...):
I few months ago I got this message to quit something that wasn't running, so I did. I don't remember what it said it was. Since that point, I had connection troubles with the internet. Then one day my little notification symbol in the top right went missing. Then, I deleted the program that connected me to the internet thinking that I could just download it again and reinstall it and everything would work fine. I went to the ubuntu site, installed it, but my computer said it was already downloaded...but I can't access it anymore. I tried to just reboot the entire system and reinstall the new 11 version, but it just sits at a black screen instead of loading.
I am at a total loss here, and I know my description is very vague. Can anyone help? Much thanks.
