I am not to good at this. But I have 3 video drives to chose from and 
would try one of the other ones. But I have only bin using Ubuntu for 10 
years or so I am a copy and past old man and when I start messing with 
changing thing in my video stuff to go faster I can get all kind of 
stuff going wrong. But I am lucky that I have most everything backed up 
and can do a new install in no time at all.
Hope you get better Johnnny333 at 68+++ and still ticking.
PS I am lucky to be retired and don't have customers look over me any 
more after 35 years at IBM wanting to now how long it will take to fix 
something.
