You might want to check the disk's health. The two tools I would use are smartctl (if your H.D.D.s support S.M.A.R.T.) and e2fsck. Those should check for hard drive issues and attempt to repair the filesystem if they can. The two things that make me suspect hard drive damage: 1) Disappearing files 2) Slow transfer speeds. If that's not it, you might want ...

@user268654 I have an Asus Laptop so I can help you. You do not want to use the Ez-Flash options.That is for flashing your BIOS. Completely unrelated to what you are trying to do. So did you do what the guy above asked with the rufus program? You want to make sure in rufus you have the GPT option selected and the fat32 option selected. NTFS will NOT work. ...

Just open the Displays settings and turn off the laptop display (Built-in Display on the picture below). If you unplug your external monitor it will come back again. And of course if the HDMI monitor is re-plugged, the laptop display will turn off as expected.

You can try typing pactl -- set-sink-volume 0 100% in terminal and change 100% to your desired boosting percentage. The 100% is the default unboosted volume; you can boost it by changing it to 200% for example. If it doesn't work then try typing pacmd list-sinks; you should see a list of "sinks" with numbers. Change the 0 in the command to the sink number ...

It won't be perfect out of the box, but with some effort you can make it work the way you want. To address the points in Nate Finchs answer, for external non-touch monitors you can use the steps provided here to create two calibrations, one for single and one for dual monitor use. Initially you touching the screen will always be interpreted as a click ...

Basically, no, in my experience (I have a 2013 XPS 15 w/ touch screen). There's multiple minor problems that make it unreliable. First, if you have multiple monitors plugged in, the touches on the screen will go to your "main" monitor, even if that isn't your laptop screen (obviously not a problem when you don't have external monitors plugged in). Even ...

When searching for solutions to this problem, I came across this thread discussing the suspend issue with X1 Carbon and Ubuntu 13.10. Since it changed from 13.04 to 13.10 I a little bit sceptical about this, but a user (a Lenovo employee) says a fix will be included in BIOS update 1.13.

Since when? If this is something that has always been the case in Ubuntu it could be that your have a wear-limiting feature enabled in your BIOS. Our Samsung laptop does this and we only get 80% of battery (but it has lasted 3 years without much drop in overall performance). If the capacity is slowly dropping off, it could be that it's just losing ...

Very often (almost always) this is an option in the BIOS that Windows can change remotely. It's very difficult to remote change this in Linux. My suggestion? When starting up your computer, smash the function keys, specifically F1, F2, F3, F6, F8, F10, and F12. One of these (maybe another) will put you into the bios menu. It says which key on startup, but it ...

Try the "Try ubuntu" options from a installation CD/USB. If everything works, it can work. Grab the version you want here Burn it to a CD or make a bootable USB. When booting your computer, interrupt your BIOS and find the option to select a bootable device. Select the USB or CD and you should be able to reach the "Try Ubuntu" option.

Install the Universal USB Installer for Windows, and once installed, launch it. Choose the Ubuntu distribution you like, and have the app download it for you onto a USB flash drive. Then, reboot your PC, and choose to boot from the flashdrive. That will start the version of Linux you chose as a LiveUSB, which will be able to use data files (music, video, ...

I had a similar problem with a Dell Inspiron 1420, but was able to brighten the display using the Function key plus the up arrow (Fn+Up).

This isn't an actual answer, more a me too, but with enough detail that I thought it would not fit neatly into a comment. Essentially I have the same issue. It's only with 1 machine on my network. Other machines on the same network, including the same version of Ubuntu (12.04) and the same browsers are OK. Facebook is the only site that seems to flat out ...
