Re: How I think I solved HP dv4-1290 no sound problem

I'm still having some issues though. Sometimes when it boots the notebook beeps a lot. I need to find out if there is a boot log and how to access it. There is no sound when I use the HDMI port. The notebook's manual says the Nvidia's chip controls the sound. I will do some search before I ask anyth...

[SOLVED] How I think I solved HP dv4-1290 no sound problem

First of all, this was only possible thanks to everyone here, like Husse (I'm too tired, I can't remember other names!), and other Mint users who didn't give up until they solved their problems. Thank you all . After cracking my head for searching this forum and Ubuntu forum for several days, removi...

Re: Recommendations for a new laptop / notebook

*makes a mental note not to forget about double checking for posts I want to comment* Have you looked at any of the new Toshiba Satellites? No Toshiba here, only if I import it.

Re: Recommendations for a new laptop / notebook

Thanks for all your answers! I am worried about the brand because I'm tired of reading about people having trouble installing linux in old IBM's Thinkpads. I wasn't really worried about the hardware itself, either using Windows or Linux, but with Linux compatibility. It would make me really mad if I...

[SOLVED]Recommendations for a new laptop / notebook

Hi, I'm going to buy a notebook and I'm worried about which brand and processor I should get. I know that in the worst case scenario I would have only to do some tweaking to make everything work because I already tested Mint in several computers and 1 notebook and it worked perfectly. But, just in c...

[SOLVED] CD drive does not recognize / read blank CD disk

Hi, First of all, since this is my first post, I must say that I'm a proud Mint user. This is best out-of-the-box distro I ever tried. Now, about my CD drive. I have one CD recorder and one DVD recorder. I have been using them for quite some time flawlessly. Some days ago I decided to burn a CD, but...
