Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an old (2006) Sony Vaio (1.73 GHz,RAM upgraded to 2GB, model PCG-7L1M VGN-FS485B) which was happily running MS-XP until I decided to ditch it before April.

I have reinstalled Ubuntu after continuing to get problems entereing numbers or lower case letters

(See recent question: Garbled caps/lowercase on Sony Vaio VGN-FS485B.)

in doing so, when asked by the installer for the computer's name I noted that the phrase "SMBIOS-implementations-newer-than-version-2-7-are-not-fully-supported-by-this-version-of-dmicode-VGN-FS485B" was already entered in the box.

What does this mean, could it be the source of my woes, and what can I do about it?

Thanks.
