More facts please

You have to tell us more facts.
The minimum is exactly which Mint you have (Edition, version)
We also need to know a bit about all your hardware.
Run " lspci " in a terminal and post here (To copy from a terminal right click)
Some wifi and possibly built in sound can be connected to USB even if they are internal - if you suspect you have one of these run " lsusb " in a terminal.
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

There are several threads on this laptop on the Ubuntu forums. One suggested this but headphones wouldn't work afterwards. It doesn't seem like it is fully supported yet. Post what Husse suggested first before you try any fixes though.
