first of all I'm not an expert in the sector, so I please you to be a little patient. I did reset the C: disk and installed Ubuntu 16.04 LTE on the pc which is a weird-o "Ollee" is all it says, (ive paid it 150 bucks brand new). It's got Intel hardware pretty much everywhere and it came with Win10. After the Ubuntu installation I had common graphic issues with video player and wifi not working. As I'm using it I'm discovering some of what I believe driver related issues, looking on the web I've found couple of links referring to an Intel program able to install all the Intel drivers needed pretty much automatically (that's what they said) but the links are now broken and i couldn't find any satisfying result on Intel's website nor Google. I kindly ask a little guidance on how to discover all of my hardware info, and directions on how to install the drivers (or any software) needed to get my pc working "properly". Here is a little lshw:

PS: I do really like to study from UNIX systems but being not able to watch a tutorial or having to stay linked to the ADSL through ethernet and either restarting my pc every 15 minutes is really frustrating, I'm only aiming to sort out the basic problems to get my Pc fully functional to enjoy the work I do on it. (I have no intention to switch OS nor PC)

You have a Cherry Trail processor which is a close cousin to Bay Trail I believe. In any case you are likely suffering from the Bay Trail bug which can be fixed by editing the grub boot loader configuration using:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Find the line containing GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

Add a space and intel_idle.max_cstate=1 after splash and before the closing double quote.

Save the file and exit the nano editor.

Run sudo update-grub

Reboot.

Others with your Atom processor didn't have any luck though: Ubuntu freezes on intel atom

I'm hoping this common solution will work for you though. Search in Ask Ubuntu using intel_idle.max_cstate=1 for lots of examples.

I had the same issues with my house prodesk 600 g2 mini 64bit. Mainly the wifi adapter. I searched my service tag # on hp.com/support. Was told I had the realtek wifi/BT adapter. So I searched for hours and got nowhere. I finally took the cover off the SSD out and looked at the card. It was intel. So I did a simple search of my driver's and added "for Linux" to my search. I found a hosting site the exact driver's. Installed the driver's did a apt-get update/upgrade and restart. Works perfect now!

  • Thank you too for the help, WinEnuuchs2Unix had me researching about few issues related my drivers and i just discovered my hardware is kind of buggy(like the Bay Trail) with many os , windows as well. I reinstalled Ubuntu including updates with the installation an that helped. I solved the major problems anyway. – JakeDD Feb 9 '18 at 20:35
