Re: Linux mint wakeup problem

It worked a week, then problems again. Sounds more like a hardware problem. Is that a Seagate HDD? Checked the SMART values on it using DISKS program? Could be bad sectors in drive increasing.

Re: Sound Issues - HALP!

There's just something sadly wrong with sound after systemd was added to Mint. That happens sometimes to me, and choosing to logout or switch user, and then immediately go back into the profile I was using immediately corrects it. Systemd has over 250 "man pages" on how to correct things, but who wa...

Probably your ten year old Seagate HDD. Install to a USB flashdrive, see if the same happens.

Re: Ethernet working on old laptop with linuxmint but not on new one..

Maybe ethernet port on new computer is too low powered. Could try a USB powered ethernet device on the new laptop, see if that gives more power and able to connect using it.

Re: Recovering floppy disks - Solved

What about the scanundo.dat files and the floppies that hold them? That means windows did a scandisk at some time in past, typically marking blocks on the floppy as bad. If you had the same windows program used, and that sounds like something older perhaps such as win98, using the same scandisk pro...

Re: Recovering floppy disks

Disks which failed to be read Make sure the lock slider on the floppy is in the correct "read" position instead. Maybe my memory is failing me (I haven't used a floppy disk for many years) but wasn't that a write-protect feature? The ability to read the disk didn't depend on the slider being on or ...

Re: Problems with mint 19.2 after installation

Test for other problems than RAM. Can't see anything wrong with them. Seagate drives can be a problem, but as I recall, you tested it and did the SMART values too without excessive read errors. Can't think of anything else, some intermittent problems with some hardware component on a motherboard can...

Re: Problems with mint 19.2 after installation

You have unmatched RAM. For a test, pull the 2GB RAM and put only the 4GB RAM in. If all works well, then put the 2GB ran in DIMM slot 2. If their speeds are different, motherboards typically read the SPD from the first DIMM slot and apply that speed to all RAM after it. However, unmatched RAM is no...

Re: Can't mount additional partitions in Linux Mint

but it told me I needed to give each new partition a mount point. I'll tell you what happened to me. I used Disks to accidentally make two partitions as / and that was on two separate drives. Before I rebooted, I realized my mistake and removed the second one. On reboot, I'd lost Mint 18.3, was una...
