I'm still struggling with this assumption as I'm concerned about the functionality of my Laptop:

In case there is a faulty controller, I could claim a warranty repair from HP.
What I did so far, was running
- Knoppix 6.7.1-32bit from an USB drive (booting in "Compatibility Mode with cheatcode "nomodeset" for graphic controller issue)
- Linux Mint 11-64bit from an USB drive (booting regularly, no graphics issue)
- Ubunt 12.04-64bit Beta from an USB drive (booting regularly, no graphics issue)
I created the USB drive with UNetbootin (for Knoppix I used their application). In all three cases there was no problem with the USB boot.
When I try to run Linux Mint 12-32 or 64bit I have the difficulties described above.
Considering that the problem only occurs with LM12-USB drive installation, I came to the conclusion that the LM12 hardware detection sees the USB controllers differently from the other distros.
Has anybody a thought/suggestion/idea on that
