Your best way to know if your hardware will work is to download ubuntu from here then burn the image and set your computer to boot from that image whether it is in livecd or liveusb format and run it in the try mode and see for yourself if your hardware works. You may have to install a driver for your wireless to work it all depends on your wireless card ...

So I had the same problem on an Asus X550C laptop. The reason seems to be a nasty bug in "network manager". What you must try to do is: open Terminal and type: rfkill list if you have a hard block "Yes" (and all the physical switches are on) you just hit the bug. from top corner, click on wireless icon and then "Disable networking". type in Terminal: sudo ...

Due to the fact that an external hard drive is usually powered via a separate power supply to the PC itself, it is prone to more issues with electricity like power surges or cuts, or even the degradation of the power source’s connection over time. If a cable is damaged,Recovering Data From External Hard Drive it may either not emit enough power to run the ...

I have never had any problems moving a hard disc from 1 machine to another machine. And I do this regularly. I do tend to try to match the new system with the old system though (ie. same brand but a newer model). If applicable there is 1 concern and that is the display driver. If you use nVidia/AMD drivers and move to AMD/nVidia I suggest removing that ...

BIOS whitelists are OS independent.A VM will not change that as it just uses the BIOS you have.

I have had similar problems in the past with my Toshiba Laptop which was resolved by installing the proprietary nVidia driver as my laptop had an nVidia GEForce graphic card.

Following this steps I did it work: 1. Open the shell and execute line per line: git clone git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git git clone --depth=1 git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git cd media_build ./build sudo make install gedit /etc/modprobe.d/LV3H.conf 2. Add this line to the blank file: options cx88xx card=81 tuner=71 3. Save it and close ...

The main branch of Ubuntu will run in the hardware you have listed. However it will feel rather slow. My suggestion is to run Lubuntu or Xubuntu, these two variants of Ubuntu requires less resources, and you'll have a better experience. Detailed info: The main branch of Ubuntu 14.04 by default comes with Unity user interface (optionally you can get it ...

For Kingston which was the one I assumed would be the best of all 3 got an average of 404 MB/s (READ) & 298 MB/s (WRITE) with the Disks Benchmark. With hdparm I got 376 MB/s (READ). There is really no sure way to know what you are going to get with a V300 without detailed testing to figure which hardware Kingston provided to you. They pulled a ...

I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and tried to use my HP LaseJet P1102w but it wouldn't respond to the printing requests, neither with Wi-Fi or USB cable connected. Ubuntu 13.10 already comes with this printer pre-configured with default settings. You should be able to just choose it on a list and use, with no need to "add a new printer". However, for me the default ...

Well I was going to point you to How to know if hard drive supports Sata3 (6Gb/s) but your question is not what Sata version is supported but if the 400 you are seeing are in fact Sata3. TIPS WHEN SELECTING A GREAT SSD DRIVE I actually made a benchmark test with 3 hard drives on the same motherboard found here in Spanish and the things I learned from it ...

Yes you do. When it says 6gbps it is just saying that that is what the maximum speed of the interface is. No drive has reached A gigabyte per second yet that I have heard of so everything is operating just fine and there is no need to worry. All that your system is saying is that the maximum interface speed is 6gbps and your volume is operating at ...

So, I looked up the TV adapter model KW-PC134-A you mentioned ( http://global.kworld-global.com/main/prod_in.aspx?mnuid=1248&modid=6&prodid=1542&flag=1 ) I'll have to say the chances are slim, I had the USB version of the Kworld TV adapters and they are mostly aimed at Windows users. I'll suggest perhaps looking into the Hauppage models, they ...

Well the best and easiest way to find out is to boot up Mythbuntu LiveCD (or USB) and let it see if it detects it. ;)

Where to look for errors A good general place to start is /var/log/syslog or dmesg. You can search through these logs for relevant info based on the type of driver or hardware, or based on the time that an issue occurred. The /var/log directory has other logs that may help depending on the issue. Graphics errors may be listed in ~/.Xsession-errors or ...

When I installed cheese on my bodhi 2.4 on my sony vaio vgn-cr353. Cheese said 'no device found'. I ran the following commands in the terminal: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:r5u87x-loader/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install r5u87x sudo /usr/share/r5u87x/r5u87x-download-firmware.sh Cheese started working after that. Hope this helps someone.

You have to run sudo sensors-detect, answer yes to all the questions (including the one about writing it to /etc/modules), and then run sudo service kmod start, and reboot. Source Screenshot:

Colour card? My answer is fairly generic but I'll assume graphics card. Generally speaking, Ubuntu has drivers for most hardware built in. Even graphics cards that offer proprietary drivers have free counterparts that will be used if you haven't already installed the proprietary driver. This means that in most cases, you can just throw the new hardware at ...

I agree with Dejans' answer: Try one of the many Lightweight Linux distribution, see list below: Make sure, that your hardware requirements are met, before deciding on one of the distros. I also suggest you to definitely buy "1GB of RAM" or maybe "2x1GB of RAM" on ebay for a small amount of money, so you can't go wrong with Lightweight Linux and also it is ...

that laptop is really old and Ubuntu 12.04 is OS from 2012. So you can't expect it to work fluently. That version of Ubuntu need at lest 1GB of RAM. Try lightweight linux distribution like Lubuntu, Linux Lite or Pepermint.

My Machine is an Advent Quantum Q200 I went into the bios by turning machine on and pressing delete. I went into advanced settings and disabled the Bit Compatibility. I saved and exited the bios settings rebooting back into Ubuntu. This seems to have cured it for me.

FIX: If you have an Nvidia graphics card, then take user1429166's advice. Run the terminal commands and update your Nvidia drivers. Use the default 'additional drivers' software on Ubuntu to choose a new driver. I was unsure of which version was Nvidia's current driver release (which i think is presently a beta release, so you probably want to avoid ...

Sounds like a hardware problem possibly.. try the keyboard on another computer to find out. Also, as a stop-gap you can use ctrl+a and ctrl+e as home/end (the emacs way) which I much prefer personally.
