Re: Best Approach of Replace Linux MInt

... Personally, I would never replace or even update any OS without an up-to-date, verified, complete system backup, regardless of whether it might be possible to avoid as a matter of absolute necessity. But that's just my "belt and suspenders" attitude toward Murphy's Law, admittedly influenced to...

Re: Best Approach of Replace Linux MInt

Unless development of the display issue has coincided notably with specific software changes (e.g., drivers) it seems to me more like a gradually evolving hardware issue than anything to do with the OS version. In the circumstances, I think I'd be running some video tests. That is a right assessment.

My next question would be WHAT display problems you have lived with during the past 3 years?

Re: Best Approach of Replace Linux MInt

You can try to upgrade it to Mint 19.3 from within Mint, but first you should backup your important personal files externally. The "update manager" under Mint menu should have this functionality. Alternatively, you may boot from a Mint 19.3 Live DVD/USB to see if your display problems repeat on a l...

Re: Best Approach of Replace Linux MInt

No, that's not possible in my experience. My next question would be WHAT display problems you have lived with during the past 3 years? Display problems are my FIRST worry and I would abandon ANY OS, which causes such problems. I have another post for those display problems and the only suggestion I...

Display Problems - Blank Panels and Missing UI Elements

My Linux Mint version is 18.1 on a dual boot PC. Lately, I run into some display problems for a few times. At this moment, a browser, Brave, panel is blank after I am using my PC for a while. And a couple of days ago, some UI elements didn't show up after I suspended the OS. How to prevent those dis...

Re: An Old PC Can't Have a USB Boot

Just a couple of things I would like to follow up.

1) I don't have a blank CD with over a 1G space for burning the OS. I need to wait for a few days to get a blank CVD dish.
2) there is a USB boot option on the boot menu. Why it doesn't work?

Burn the ISO to a DVD & do it from the DVD drive instead.
If it does not have a DVD drive then buy a USB DVD drive - they are cheap enough..
Thanks for the suggestion. It has both CD and DVD drives. I will try the approach.

An Old PC Can't Have a USB Boot

I create a Linux distro Bootable USB with Rufus. I can boot from the USB on my current Dell desktop PC, but not on an old Dell desktop which I bought in 2002. Can anything be done to get it booted?

Can you boot from a live medium (installation disk or USB stick) and retrieve the information that way?
In a live meduim boot, the command inxi doesn't exist. I have tried to install the command. That doesn't work for the type of booting. Any alterative command?

Hi,
Probably best you come clean and give some more information rather than trying to make us guess.
Anything you wanna tell us?
I provide all information I can. BTW, I just updated my post with an additional information.
