If you want to make a USB to install Windows in UEFI mode: Apply a GPT partition table to the USB drive and format it as FAT32 using GParted. Copy Windows files from DVD/ISO to USB using the file manager. On USB drive, copy the boot folder from efi/microsoft up one level to efi folder (applies only to Windows 7). Look for a bootx64.efi file in boot/efi ...

Plug in an ethernet cable so you have an internet connection, then go to Menu>Preferences>Additional Drivers This should allow you to download and install the proprietary drivers that are needed for some Broadcom cards to run.

The solution is to run xrandr then find the name of your default display. In my case it was LVDS-1-0. Then to make it the default, I ran this command: DISPLAY=:0 xrandr --output LVDS-1-0 --auto That solved everything for me, I can now use my laptop without having to plug in a HDMI cable connected to a monitor anymore.

I had a very similar problem and spent several days trying to get my card working. I have an ASUS X550LN which has an Intel Graphics Driver on the CPU and a dedicated NVIDIA GEFORCE GT 840M. First, installing the nvidia-340 drivers would cause Unity and Gnome to fail when launching. I could drop to a shell Ctrl + Alt + F1 and remove the driver sudo apt-get ...

For me, doing this was not enough. I needed to let my thumb at the bottom of the touchpad (ready to click). Actually, the AreaBottomEdge don't disable the "finger counting" on the dead zone and resting your thumb enable the scroll. Quite annoying. To fix that, I used this patch : http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=4v9JP2pe Don't forget to change to the ...

Surface temperature The question is about an unusual surface temperatue distribution on the body of a very thin notebook. It basically asks "Is that normal?" Misconfigured? I took the question as describing side effects of misconfigured fan- or power saving configuration. I tried pretty hard to find that implied problem, but finally gave up. Is it normal ...

For a couple of years, I serviced the laptops of a larger German car manufacturer. I've seen all kinds of Toshibas, Compaqs, IBMs / Lenovos and HPs. On some (I can't recall the brand though), you could see a read-only BIOS entry, listing the "battery order", but it was neither changeable through the BIOS nor the system. On none of all these laptops it was ...

Since, your machine is of 64bit, it would be better to install a 64bit OS. I am not saying that a 32bit OS can not run in a 64bit machine rather if you install 64bit OS, there will be a lesser amount of battery consumption. Plus since you are using two OS s simultaneously, the drainage of battery would obviously be higher.

Go to settings, light locker settings, and ENABLE the "lock on suspend" button, that works for me, and the system ask for my password to log in, without problems. I prove this with and without ac energy

As I reported today on Ubuntu 14.04 Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTS5227 PCI Express Card Reader isn't working : # modprobe -r rtsx_pci # modprobe rtsx_pci with a kernel starting from 3.9 will do. One need to investigate why it gets disable.

Dell now offers some hardware with linux pre-installed. You could also go with System76, where they only sell hardware with Ubuntu installed, and have some cheaper (subjectively) options and some nicer, high performance options. I think that might be where I get my next laptop myself.

You could wait if you want. The only thing thing that blacklisting these modules does is revert the linux kernel to using PIO instead of DMA, which are both ways that data is sent between the CPU and hardware. Differences between the two is explained here: http://www.differencebetween.net/technology/difference-between-dma-and-pio/ I can personally say ...

You should try adjusting your power settings, specifically your maximum processor usage to reduce excessive heat build up. This is not something that can be accomplished with a single button click, but it is possible using some lightweight software. THIS PAGE explains step-by-step how to achieve this. It is a relatively lengthy article, so I won't re-type ...

I have the version with i3-4000m cpu, without dedicated graphics. Runs well with Windows 7 x64. Ubuntu 14.04 (actually haven't tried it with the main edition, only Xubuntu, Kubuntu and Ubuntu Gnome ed.), in both x32 and x64, experiences random freezes, that can be solved only by a hard reboot. Ctrl-Alt-Backspace doesn't work, even if enabled, nor does ...

This is apparently a known issue and won't be fixed. The solution is to suspend once manually, then ACPI functions will work until the next reboot.

Very short answer: Yes. Short Answer: Yes, but graphics might not work. Answer: Theoretically, Ubuntu should run on any modern computer. Yours is good enough for base specs. You might need to install some custom drivers for your computer, though. You can access this in the Software prefpane in your control panel. You can test whether it will actually ...

normal shutdown and suspend functions can be had by blacklisting the DMA kernel modules so they dont load at boot. this also allows suspending and awakening when closing/opening the lid. do this by going to etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf with your text editor and adding these line of text: blacklist dw_dmac blacklist dw_dmac_core and save with superuser ...
