Re: Wireless stops working randomly and only works again after hard restart.

I also have an ideapad and the same problem. In my case, the solution is to start the laptop on battery power and then plug it in once fully booted. I believe it to be an emi issue and it may be the same for you.

Re: CD drive unable to write (Solved)

It was a faulty drive, which surprises me because this laptop is pretty new. The hardest part was removing the bevel without breaking the plastic clips, but everything is working fine now.

Re: editing themes

I just started to tweak this theme as well and have been following this guide http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/gnome-edit-theme.html.

Re: CD drive unable to write

My CD/DVD drive can read, but can't write. There are times, however, when it can't read and the cd just spins and makes various clicking, R2D2 noises; but that can be fixed by pressing down on it to make sure it's seated right up against the laser scanner. I've tried burning at various speeds trying...

Re: CD drive unable to write

The ISO I'm trying to burn is 380M. Audio and video work fine, but unable to write. I've cleaned the laser lens, tried different CDs, different burning programs. I'm at a loss.

Before I try to install a new one, I wanted to ask for any assistance/ideas. Maybe I'm overlooking something obvious. inxi -Fxzd: Syste...

Re: No wifi after reboot

WLAN is enabled in BIOS. I normally operate my laptop plugged in (not sure if this is good or bad). I only run on battery if I'm mobile, which isn't too often. What I just discovered is the power plug is somehow interfering with my wireless. If I reboot on battery only, my wireless system operates n...

No wifi after reboot

My wifi disappears after shutdown/reboot (no networks detected). I experienced this same problem with 18.1 xfce.
