Display and sound drivers

Hi,my old pc, using ubuntu has dyed. I've just bought new notebook pc, IBM-Lenovo 3000 n100. I would like to continue use ubuntu in my new pc. But there are two problems: n100 uses desktop resolution 1200x800. System control can use this video resolution (it lets to check the box for use) but it still do not turn on this resolution, just shows error message, that display has a problem, at lower resolution display view is smooth. Don't like this. In winxp it works perfectly, when I have installed display drivers.The same with a sound. No sound at all. Probing sound devices, also changing sound deamons has no effect.I think these problems has occured because there is no drivers for new hardware.OK, I tryed to download drivers for my PC form lenovo, but it has drivers only for windows XP. And I am not so keen on windoz..:(Can You help me, or have any ideas how I can use ubuntu in my PC with normal screen and sound?Thanks guys for any info.>>>---Linux Rules--->

Fix for your 3000N100 Video Issue

Sorry your old system dIEd.  I run Open SuSE 10.2 on the 3000N100 with very good results.  Everything works under Linux but the fingerprint scanner, and if you care about it, Thinkfinger or SANE may correct even that.Have you tried plugging your problem into Google?  The video issue is commented on by a number of sites.  This should fix that problem http://www.geocities.com/stomljen/. I had no audio issues under OpenSuSE, so I don't know the answer to that off the top of my head. However, a Google search for "3000 N 100 audio ubuntu" returns 148,000 hits, so I'm guessing the answer is out there.  As someone who has been doing this since before you were probably born, I will gently suggest that posts which are brief and well structured and aren't "kewl" and "leet" tend to get more, and more knowledgable, responses.Good luck with your issues.
