In the light of my recent laptop meltdown issues I have purchased a new machine:
HP Pavilion DV7-2018TX
Core Duo P8700 (2.53 GHz)
500 GB HD
4096 MB DDR2 SDRAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 Graphics card with 1024MB DDR3 dedicated onboard
I ran the live CD and all went well but then the process ended with the command line and it didn't take me through into X nor any of the setup screens - just the CLI...
Now I love Linux especially Mint - but I am not yet uber enough for the command line!!
Caould someone tell me what is up please? Is my hardware too shiny and new and not supported (I suspect the Graphics card)? Are there any workarounds...?
