I was eventually able to solve this. I replaced the EFI/Microsoft/boot/bootmgfw.efi with the grub64.efi. I renamed the former to bootmgfw.efi.old and used grub to add a menu option to chainload into it. This implies that the firmware is hardcoded to look for the microsoft windows bootloader, and does not respect efibootmgr settings, or startup.nsh. That's ...

First, you don't have two ESPs. An ESP is a partition with a partition type code of C12A7328-F81F-11D2-BA4B-00A0C93EC93B, which parted identifies as a partition with its "boot flag" set. Your output indicates that only /dev/sda3 has its "boot flag" set, so you've got only one ESP -- /dev/sda3. Under GPT, partitions can have names, and you've got two ...

Ok, I got to a different solution that should work for other laptops too, not only for VAIOs. Make sure that xbacklight and inotify-tools are installed, I just ran sudo apt-get install xbacklight inotify-tools .

Using the NetworkManager command line tool to enable wifi solved my problem: nmcli nm wifi on Seems like the NetworkManager believed that the hardware switch was turned off and dimmed the "enable wireless" due to that "wrong" information. However forcing to enable wireless with the command line tool worked.

I haven't tested it (yet!), but apparently there's an Open Source version of "Content Manager" that has been developed for connectivity with the PlayStation Vita: QCMA Most of the users at that link claim it works for them, so I'm gonna test it out as soon as my PlayStation Vita is charged...

The solution for me was to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file. It's a problem with the graphics driver not the keymap. Open the file for editing and add the line Option "RegistryDwords" "EnableBrightnessControl=1" in the Section "Device" section as shown below. Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName ...

Through my years of troubleshooting and repairing computers, I have learned that on laptops sometimes you need to reset the power-management on the unit. Resetting the power-management is simple. Take the battery and power supply out of the laptop. Press the power button a few times to drain any capacitance of power left in the laptop. Connect battery ...
