Audio, Suspend, and Wireless Problems

Postby NessDan on Mon Jan 19, 2009 10:50 pm

So I installed Linux Mint on my Mom's Laptop and have some questions concerning it. Please note nothing has been done to the Laptop really and this is pretty much a clean install of the newest Linux Mint distribution.

So so far, there have been problems with the audio, suspend mode, and wireless.

The audio doesn't work. It's not muted and I can change the volume, but nothing comes out of the speakers and headphones when plugged in. I know you'll probably need more information so if you guys can tell me how to get it I will get it.

Wireless worked out of the box which surprised me since my Laptop (similar model) couldn't get Wireless enabled when I tried. Her wireless is fully functional until...

Suspend mode. I don't know what's going on but when we put the Laptop into suspend (whether it be from keeping it idle or shutting the lid) it either will A) Not come back on. It just stays black screened so we have to force shut it down. Or, B) It'll come back on but Wireless will be disabled and cannot connect so we end up rebooting.

Please, if you can help with even just one of these problems that'd be awesome. Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

We can certainly help you, but then 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.
