How did you install it on there before? It probably seems obvious, but maybe you could try the following?: Boot up into the live USB Back up any important files/data externally Reformat the drive, so you know you're starting form a 'clean slate'. Probably doing a thorough drive scan and system diagnostic check wouldn't be a bad idea either Try ...

This seems related to this bug:https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1135793 I'd keep an eye on that and see if they come up with any workarounds. In the meantime you could try booting Fedora 20 with mem=1024 kernel parameters and using that or try to upgrade to Fedora 21 from there with fedup.

I had an identical problem with the Acer V17 Nitro (VN7), but upgrading the Linux kernel even to version 3.18 did not completely solve the problem, but only made the touchpad work while right/left clicks on the ClickPad part are ignored. The enable-rightbutton.sh code did not work either and return the error that there is no property such as "Synaptics Soft ...

Ok so finally i figured out how to get back a Ubuntu operating bootable I have made a new stick with Ubuntu 14.04 in Bios Boot option i changed to legacy boot for HDD Then from the live Ubuntu i started the install option and made a home made partition dev/sda, to use Grub (i think first time i did dev/sda1 that may explain why it was not booting) Primary ...

You will probably get more technical and possibly better answers from others after I say this, but I honestly feel you need to hear what I have to say before you do anything else. You need to understand that you ACER, as well as several other brands including but not limited to ASUS, HP, DELL and Lenovo, all offer laptops with LINUX pre-installed. Dell ...

Hey. This answer is probably a litte late, but (thanks to the author lukabirsa ) there is a great script HERE on how to install Ubuntu 14.04 on the Acer C720 and C720P (with many links to additional fixes for Kernel 3.13). Have a nice weekend. P.S. if you run Kernel 3.17 or newer, you don't need to fix the Touchpad and Suspend functionalities. On the ...

I've also bought this little notebook. I faced almost the same problems as you when i booted with 'legacy' mode. I fixed that issue with enabled 'uefi' mode in bios settings. On ubuntu you can either enable or disable the secure boot option to get it booting. (While booting ubuntu enables 'secure boot' anyways) Format an usb stick with FAT32 and copy ubuntu ...

Although the seller did not let me test the software I ended up buying an ASUS F553M. I installed Ubuntu in accordance with the instructions given here and the computer is running almost 100%. With the exception of not turning off, is locked in the message "* will now halt", and consequent problems in restarting, all hardware seems to work. Thank you, Vasco ...

I too have one of the 7750G models from Acer. I too had a very similar issue, trying to install Ubuntu 14.04.1 where it would lock up and eventually dump kernel debug info. My solution: Boot into BIOS (F2 when starting on my model) Change Switchable graphics to Integrated(turn off the second GPU) Save & Exit Install Ubuntu! :) You can then install ...

I am paraphrasing the solution which is found in the link: Delete delete /etc/resolv.conf sudo apt-get remove --purge resolvconf Restart the computer Now the wireless Internet works. We can rebuild the file sudo apt-get install resolvconf

Try a new kernel as mentioned. It works for my Aspire E5-571. See http://askubuntu.com/a/557370/355307

Support for Atheros AR5BBU22 is in the Kernel since 3.6.15 but additionally the proprietary firmware has to be installed on the system for bluetooth to work. It is available in the package linux-firmware (on ubuntu; resp. firmware-atheros on debian, non-free).

I also have the same graphics card - ATI Radeon HD5650M. I have installed the package fglrx-updates and am facing no issues whatsoever and can also play games like Left For Dead 2 on Steam with good frame rates. There is no such thing as HD 5xxx series not being supported by fglrx-updates as mentioned by @forthaction. Try reinstalling the package by ...

The best way is to go to a computer shop which sells one of your models and ask whether you may boot Ubuntu from an USB stick in order to test if everything's fine (emphasize that you're not going to change anything at the computer at all - I've experienced that many resellers have never heard of Ubuntu, let alone used it.) You can put an Ubuntu ISO on an ...

Try opening a terminal and typing: synclient VertEdgeScroll=1 synclient HorizEdgeScroll=1 and see if that helps... To make this change permanent, go to a terminal and type: gksudo gedit, type on the first line: #!/bin/sh and on the second and third line, copy-paste the above lines. Save the file under "/usr/local/bin/MakeScrollWork.sh" Then open in ...

I fixed it with this entry in /etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" Thanks to Rmano

Please try: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux" It works at least for me on my acer asus 1005P, contrary to what it's written here. (maybe the kernels are different).

I am a relative newbie but have just rebuilt my old laptop with Ubuntu 14.04. If you have an internal DVD build a boot DVD on a friends machine. Boot from that and you will be able to check out your hardware is all ok or not! If no DVD then you may be able to build a bootable USB dongle but I have never tried. PS does your machine only have a solid state ...
