Okay, I have one laptop, a Compaq with an Intel Celeron that work well enough except the sound still does not work with Mint 7. The second laptop is a newer Compaq but running a AMD Sempron.
I can not for the life of me get Mint or Ubuntu to work right on the AMD equipped one. I have been trying since the RC release. I might get it for a while, but eventually it will go back to losing sound, scratchy graphics, freezing up, crashing constantly. Today, I have done a fresh install 3 times! And all three times, it crashed.
What is going on? My old laptop with Mint 6 was fine, but now it seems like it is falling apart. Am I missing something?
