I have the same issue after upgrade to 19.3. Any solution found? Your options are to go back to the 4.15 kernel series or to disable power management for Intel's HDA driver: sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf <<<'options snd-hda-intel power_save=0' (takes effect on reboot) Thanks gm10.

Re: Hello from the UK

Thanks BG405. I reckon 6 to 12 months before losing the L-plate, judging by the last 3 days - steep learning curve for a "Go to PCWorld, buy a PC and use its software"-type of guy. Never installed an OS before, until 2 days ago. Still haven't ever created partitions on drives, and I'm kinda struggli...

BG405: thanks re avatar. :lol:

Five minute dash and grab of a few bits from Pixabay. Figured I'd wear an L-plate at least until I've actually got Linux permanently installed!

Re: Hello from the UK

Thanks for all the warm welcomes, folks. I appreciate it. Just finally got around to downloading the MATE iso, and once again, thanks to this forum, managed to navigate the verification, authentication and create bootable USB steps. It's so good to have step-by-steps to follow along with. Reckon I'l...

Re: Hello from the UK

Thanks for the welcomes and info about Office compatibility into the various Linux software. I was planning to opt for Mint Cinnamon, but found out there might be a few problems with my ancient on-board graphics (NVIDIA GeForce 7100/ nForce 630i).

Hello from the UK

Hi everyone! New boy checking in. I guess I'm getting banished from the House of Windows 7 in January, so I decided to migrate to Linux Mint as a complete Linux beginner. Still on Win7 at the moment and going through software auditing, data backups, etc. Thought it a good idea to jump into the commu...
