(solved)fan stopping, same point on celena or daryna livecd

Postby caddi fuller-Teabags on Mon Nov 05, 2007 6:25 am

I am a newbie so please be gentle with me.

I posted here with this problem but have decided to edit my post as it was, basically, crap. I have since read around various forums and googled for an answer but still cannot find an one.

I am trying to install Mint 3 (celena) on a winfast desktop running an AMD sempron 3000, but cannot get the livecd to run without stopping the main cpu fan.
I have tried


using the daryna livecd (same problem)
    launching normally
    Launching into safe graphics mode.
    deleting the quiet splash and typing noacpi
    deleting the quiet splash and typing noapci
    deleting the quiet splash and typing noacpi noapci
    changing the hard drive
    putting a socking great desk fan trained onto the open side of the PC (since I had the idea that if I could install mint onto it I could bypass the problem on the live cd?)


This led to another problem - namely that starting the partitioner seems to stick at 6% - it has been there for ten minutes before I shut the PC down for fear of burning my system.

I already have windows xp on the hdd (samsung sp1604n -I tried another hdd and still had the problem) and have unallocated disk space in readiness for the install.

I am sorry that I was such a berk last time, and I hope that I have given enough information this time for someone to help me.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

OOps.

Should this be posted under the installation section? I posted it here because I am a newbie and thought that I probably wouldn't understand instructions on the non-newbie forum.

If it needs moving could someone do that for me please?

I was able to disable smartfan in BIOS as someone suggested. Many thanks.
