I installed Mint 5 Elyssa Main Edition on a HP Pavilion dv9640us. The "main" OS is Vista Home Premium 64 Bit (hopefully not for much longer )
Mint installed perfectly fine on the second HD, Grub seems to work ok and i was also using Mint pretty much the whole day in the office yesterday without any problems.
Today however, it stopped. I booted into Vista, then rebooted the system into Mint. Everything works ok, I get the login screen, but then the computer hangs and the blue LED next to the caps lock button keeps blinking (it stopps blinking when i press the button to switch off the touchpad). I tried the few things i could find on the net,like adding
pci=nommconf noapic nolapic pnpbios=off
to the boot options. but that did not help. Has anybody had similar problems and maybe a solution to this problem?
Thanks in advance
