It installed onto mine. Maybe it didn't onto your's because I was using Windows XP and maybe you aren't. Browsing sped up? No popups?

Sooo now I'm thinking about doing something like this..

That's good news but I would have just formatted if I were to sell it. At the very least, make sure you sign out of Chrome (links to your Google account) and clear the browser like you did before again on last power down. At least that way, you're account info online won't be saved. I'd uninstall Steam and its games as well. You don't want them logging onto your account every once and awhile knocking you off (or just change your password I guess).

Your ebay link doesn't work. I guess it is your account stuff is why (I don't really use ebay).

Yea I'm going to format the PC.. only problem is I don't have the driver CD for the computer so they will have to figure that out on their own. Which, imo, is a pain in the ass.

Yea - that's where I always go and get them. But once you first format your computer you have no wifi/ethernet support until you get a driver. So you need to burn it to a disk ect. It's just a pain in the ass.

That's lame. Why in the world would at least the ethernet NIC not be plug and play? I mean seriously. Who cares if it has AfterBurner on it? At least it should function without any special drivers. Dell is so bad. Someone brought their Dell laptop to me asking me to fix it because it would not charge but it would still have power when plugged in. I figure it is just a bad battery but no, it is that the Dell power adapter's chip inside that identifies itself to Dell's BIOS as being a Dell product died, so although it worked, the BIOS wouldn't let it charge. How crappy is that?

Idk it was weird though because when I installed ubuntu it would plug and play the ethernet port..

Also my battery died on this computer too and got a replacement one. It still shows it as having a bad battery. It does allow it to charge but it still gives me the "0% available, plugged in, not charging, consider replacing your battery" bullshit.

Ubuntu comes with a comprehensive WiFi/Ether driver packaged that they've been working on for years. That's why.

12.10 I think it was, if that's how they label all the short term releases, gave me so many problems with wifi.  It just couldnt connect to my router for whatever reason.  Once I used the LTS version it worked perfectly.

Probably one of the biggest confusions in the world of using Linux is bleeding edge vs production. Distributions focused on the desktop and bleeding edge like Fedora doesn't help matters. But basically, bleeding edge means that you get the latest software but it hasn't been through any significant testing. Even more confusing is that popular software tends to have a fast life cycle in the open source environment, so that means not using the "stable" builds will cause software to constantly be in that state - where bugs are killed quickly but new ones will also be created quickly. Obviously the easy answer to this is "LTS" releases, where the focus is more on stability rather than bleeding edge.

It is tough to keep a balance. If you look at Apt (Debian-like distributions such as Ubuntu) you have the option of using stable, testing and unstable repositories. Unstable is true bleeding edge, while testing is considered at least able to run and stable is considered vetted or production level.
