Hello guys, I got a big problem with my linux mint 4.0. I got an HP dv9541, intel centrino duo T5450, nvidia 8400M GS, 1 giga memory. I run dual boot from an external usb hard drive (curious thing, vista can't even find it after I installed linux on it).
When I boot, even when it was running from the liveCD (now installed), it gave me an error message "failure to allocate mem" then some numbers. It then works properly, but after 1-2 hours or so graphics start to slow down, the touchpad doesn't respond very sharply and then crushes completely, can't even reboot before it cools down a bit. I can tell there 's a connection between overheating and slowing down, since windows vista doesn't behave this way (it's much slower from the begging and remains such-damn it-but does not warm up).
How can I get it fixed, since I like linux, and if possible I would'n go back to vista. Thank you very much, keep up the good work.
