From what I have been seeing now, the problem is on Linux's end. (I can't put this question in both the Windows and Linux forums.) When I boot up my computer, when I get to the desktop, a dialog box appears saying Windows has finished installing new drivers and that I have to restart my computer in order for it to take effect. I tried it once. (manually, the official way: click start- click turn off computer- click restart.) No results, the dialog box appears once again. So, the solution is to probably restart for all the Linux files. (146 times or so, doubled because I have two copies of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.) Alternatively, I can restart from the dialog box.
