Hi there. Been out for a while (no net last months...), but I was using Mint dualbooting with XP during that time. No problems so far, the system was perfectly stable and fast. Everything running good. I got a GSM net here, it uses a cell-phone to connect. It's like dial-up, but faster. So I decided to find a way to make it work with my Mint (of course the manufacter didn't make a linux driver for its modem), and I did it. Then I decided to wipe sloWindows out from my machine forever and install a fresh Mint from the ground. I did it too. Now the problems started to pop up. The most annoying is the USB mouse suddenly stopping to work. From nowhere, ramdomly, it stops: the lights keep turned on, but I can do nothing with the pointer and buttons. Unplugging and plugging again didn't solve the problem: I must reboot to make it work again. By now I connected a PS2 mouse, so when the USB one stops I can switch immediatelly.
Well, some clue outhere? I googled and found this problem been a bit common. Some say it's the BIOS that must be updated. Well, my BIOS is updated, and it worked several months before the wipe. Now, with everything being the same, it doens't work.
Please, shed some light here, Oh! mighty paladins of the pure Mint!
