My laptop had windows 7 on it (it came originally with W8 crap) But I decided to install ubuntu cause windows is so slow :P
So I downloaded 13.04 x64, installed (overwriting win 7 etc as I don't need it). The touchpad and keyboard both didn't work but my external USB mouse did, so I ran through the installation. Rebooted, and when I booted into ubuntu it was still not working.
The keyboard works fine in the GRUB selection menu.
Lastly, I just finished installing 12.04 LTS x64 but same thing. Including this time, I have no wireless.
Laptop is a Packard Bell Easynote LE.
