My medion md96400 laptop, video and wireless failure
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 23, 2006
My video card works fine, ati express M200, but only using the vesa driver, so i can't use a fglrx to get 3d render, when i try fglrx it just starts flashing the screen in different colors (sigle color filling entire screen). Also i cannot get my wireless card to work, the only info i can get on my wireless card is minipci (general for many wireless cards) and ralink. Since i only have a 1m udp, i would really like to get my wireless to work, so i can move out of the corner of my living room
Can't install Kubuntu/Ubuntu/Mageia on my Acer 771G laptop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2013
As per title I'm unable to install any linux distribution tried so far (Kubuntu/Ubuntu 13.04 and Mageia 3 rc).
In reality it can't even boot the live session.
The usb keys work perfectly on my desktops, but not on this laptop (who came with win8 preinstalled. Then I installed win7).
When it boots (either with *buntu or Mageia) it seems to load, then it seems the kernel is loading, the screen becomes black and nothing else happens.
On the bios to install win7 I selected "legacy-bios" option, rather than uefi, which should assure more compatibility with those live images.

location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 7, 2011
I am currently using Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat notebook edition (32bit) on my Fujitsu A530 (intel core i5 64bit ).
I downloaded the notebook edition of Maverick Meerkat from ubuntu website. My concern is that I couldn't found a link for intel 64bit Notebook Maverick Meerkat.
I am quite comfortable using Ubuntu on my laptop but want to harness the power of 64bit.
Please forward me the link for downloading Maverick Meerkat Notebook Edition for intel core i5 64bit

How to go about setting up win xp/zorin os dual boot on my toshiba satellite laptop?
location: linux.com - date: November 2, 2012
I want to dual boot win xp and zorin on my laptop. How exactly would I go about doing this?
Should I install win xp first, then the linux distro, or the other way around?
I've had some problems getting boot disks to actually boot on a computer before, whether it was my bios that was the problem I don't know. Any tips would be great, thanks.
[laptop/video] Windows OK, Linux NOK : Why?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 24, 2011
I'd like to know why even a basic Windows (bootable CD with WinPE) displays OK, while even a recent Ubuntu (11.04) shows a blank screen (I can SSH to it, so it works, it's just the video that doesn't).
According to this review, the Acer 3810T laptop uses an Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics card.
Is it some kind of licensing issue that would explain why Ubuntu is unable to work with that video card?
I am having trouble installing linux on my new samsung laptop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 9, 2013
I am trying to install Linux on my new Samsung 370R5E laptop. The version I have tried is Linux mint cinnamon. I tried with linuxmint.com and when I clicked on the download nothing happened. Then I tried linux.softpedia.com and everything seemed to be going well - it appeared to be installed when I booted the computer there was a choice of windows OS or linux OS. I clicked on Linux and it failed to open. There was a message saying that it could not open because a file was missing. I have now taken it off my computer and would like some help with how to proceed next. I am prepared to use another version of linux if mint cinnamon is not possible.
Laptop and wireless hacking
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 10, 2008
This is a somewhat hard to explain problem. I'm going to get a new laptop soon and I want one with a good wireless card. My current one has useless wireless support in Linux.
The thing is that I want to start hacking with wireless networks, like WEP-cracking and packet sniffing. I've realised that it's not possible to do this with all network cards however. Especially not mine.
Does anyone here first of all, know what kinds of functionality a wireless network card should have in order to have support for programs like aircrack, pcap, dsniff, kismet and similiar stuff? What cards should I stay away from?
I'm thinking about buying a Asus EEE 1000H. It's cheap, portable and has good battery time. The only thing I don't know about is the wireless card. If you know something about it, I would appreciate if you could tell me.
Thankful for any help and information about this.
