How to repair ubuntu after deliberate motherboard short circuit
I would like to know what is the best course of action to take. I short circuited my mother board to bypass a bios password (a bug with Toshiba Satellite laptops easily fixed with new bios installation) Since the short or bios upgrade, Ubuntu has been acting weird. It takes a very long time to establish wireless connection my router and then promptly disconnects within a few seconds, I can't control audio volume from the control wheel on the laptop, power state (charging or battery level) no longer shows, and computer doesn't hibernate on closing the laptop lid nor does it completely power down on shutdown command. It freezes at the Ubuntu screen at 3/5 dots but doesn't completely power down without manually depressing the power button. Thus, I was wondering if I should reinstall Ubuntu or repair it. I run a dual boot system and Windows is unaffected, i.e., working normally.
Help much appreciated.
Can you help with this problem?
