But, you have to use a 64-bit distro image (I know, I know) Secure boot must be turned off in BIOS as you did already. You need to edit your live USB. Inside will be a directory EFI and inside that a directory BOOT That directory ...

I have a Lenovo Z500 CORE i7 running on Ubuntu 14.04 and had experienced overheating too. This is due to the dedicated graphics card, a nVidia GT 635m, running constantly, instead of using the integrated Intel 4000 HD graphics chip. You should set up your Ubuntu to use the internal graphics to decrease heat and when wanting to use the dedicated graphics, ...

You will need an Ubuntu Desktop install image. You will need to boot to this image instead of your hard drive and use Ubuntu to offload you files to another device like a USB drive.

more info needed, but you can try this as a meantime solution, my fathers lap had the same problem he was using KDE, and the problem was simply the graphic card driver, which causes almost a complete freeze of the system; so i would try in the meantime to disable the suspend and go sleep options ( u do this on the options "monitor","screen" and in ...

I think this is a normal feature, I have it too in Ubuntu 15.04. I actually quite like it: when I need to run something overnight on my laptop, it basically allows me to switch off the screen. Windows doesn't let me do this, I had to keep a large book over my laptop screen or change my power settings when I had to run overnight processes. That being said, ...

Running the following will do the trick. xrandr --output DVI-0 --brightness 2 or change the brightness value to what you desire. If you want to change the configuration of an output, then you need the name of the output. This name is part of the output of xrandr or use xrandr --current, for example LVDS1. The brightness can be changed like this: ...

It does not run on my system when I plug and unplug my power adapter. You can check whether it is run or not by looking at /var/log/pm-powersave.log.

You can create a new udev ...

The AC adaptor is showing online, and the battery is discharging at zero rate. The battery charging logic is not under OS control. One of the many independent microcontrollers in your laptop controls the battery (along with a corresponding microcontroller in the battery itself) decide when and how to charge. At worst, your OS would not be correctly ...

I had a similar issue on my CLEVO N150SD computer, also running Ubuntu 16.04 (x64) with standard kernel. After a while I realized that this weird behavior happened when I accidentally clicked on my touchpad. So I tried adding i8042.nomux=1 and i8042.noloop=1 on my boot parameters and now it is working. More info here: ...

Do you already have Ubuntu installed on this machine? How does it is partitioned? Don't know about Windows, but you could install grub on MBR. Copy this on a USB stick and boot it to see if you can restore your boot loader: https://sourceforge.net/projects/boot-repair-cd/

Your battery itself doesn't care if you have installed 1,2,3 or X operating systems on your disks. You might realize that some operating system is taking/using more or less power when active then another operating system (again when active) which is expected behaviour as each operating system is different Battery consumption is related on the one side how ...

Overall it should run fine. I have an Asus UX303LA with quite similar specs and the things I had to tweak to make them work were the hotkeys for the display brightness and the keyboard back light (see this link for a workaround for the keyboard backlight issue if you experience it: http://askubuntu.com/a/701145/474849). The gestures on the touch pad might ...

Make sure you dont have nvidia Geforce GT(X) 900M series (960M, 970M... etc), because nouveau does not support those cards as of May 2016. Since nouveau is loaded by default together with intel you only need to put 1 command in a terminal once your computer has started: xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink nouveau Intel then you only need DRI_PRIME=1 in ...

This is not possible, because notebooks with intel and NVIDIA hybrid graphics use are using the intel graphics as default. When you you want to select which graphics to use, you have to install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers and Optimus support. Then you can switch between the intel and the NVIDIA graphics adapter by using the NVIDIA X Server Settings ...

Probably a combination of the function key (Fn on the keyboard) and one of the function buttons F1 - F12. On mine it's Fn+F2. You can google the info for you laptop model.
