from further reading i think it's correct to say that when i launch an application with the gpu:
it renders black. i can still hear it, and hear that im hovering over buttons (if i launch a game for example).
the only thing that I can think of that might be doing anything is...
very well. Thank you for your help. Ill try on fedora live env. and i also have asked intel fourms. may as well sort this out for the whole of arch if that is indeed the issue.
When i solve - and i will grrrrr - ill post here shall i? :)
ah. would being on an arch-based distro perhaps not have this certified-ness that ubuntu has got?
i am very certain that it is my wifi card. assuming it is, is there anything to the effect of "please computer, turn off any software that might be switching the wifi off" command?
