Linux mint 17 not booting after dual boot install (Solved)

Good day, I have an ASUS laptop (g750J) that I'm trying to install Linux mint 17 on, unfortunately I have to keep windows 8.1 on this laptop also. I cleared a 300 GB partition, made a bootable USB, disabled secure boot from the BIOS, launched the live environment and installed selecting the option t...

Re: Deleted windows after attempted Dual boot.

So to be sure, I have to wipe the hard drive, install windows, then install Linux?

Would I need to do anything additional because I chose the "encrypt the hard drive" option and now LM asks for a password before booting?

Deleted windows after attempted Dual boot.

Good day, I have an ASUS G750J laptop that I had previously installed LM 15 on next to the original Windows 8, the setup worked well until I decided to upgrade LM15 to LM17. I made a bootable USB drive and tested the new release, clicked on install and the setup program recognized the LM15 installat...

Re: Monitor turning off

I have the brightness set to maximum, no screensaving, no power management, and trying to adjust brightness in the darkened state doesn't do anything, the monitor "darkens" even if I leave it on for a few seconds while doing nothing and running no programs or even if I have a text editor o...

Re: Monitor turning off

Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately that didn't change the behavior :( I did notice something interesting though, it seems like the monitor isn't actually off, just so dark that I can't see anything, if I shine a bright light onto the monitor I can barely make out the outlines of the windows and can...

Re: Monitor turning off

Thank you for the reply. I'm not sure about "all the usual settings" but I have tried a new user, turning the screensaver off, setting it to never turn off monitor and adjusting brightness, all to no benefit.

Re: Random Wireless Disconnections

Thanks for the suggestion! It seems quite odd, sometimes it goes for days without disconnecting and sometimes it disconnects multiple times in an hour (all other devices connected to the network still work. I live in a studio so the other end of the room is as far as I can go. my phone and other int...

Good day, I'm using Mint 14 cinnamon on a HP DV6 laptop and I noticed that at random intervals the Wifi will drop and refuse to connect again, the wifi adapter goes off and trying to turn it back on results in the screen flickering and nothing happening, logging out and back in doesn't fix it, only ...

Re: Bizzare behavior after restart

Sorry for the delay, was away from my computer for a few days
Many thanks to all who offered their advice and help.
In the end I did a full reinstall and didn't restore files automatically. just manually.

Best regards

Re: Bizzare behavior after restart

Using Cinnamon 2d results in a strange effect where there is NO menu and I can't make any window take focus, I couldn't open anything not on the desktop shortcut and once something was open I couldn't move it.. I had to do a hard reboot as there was no way that I know of to get to the logout option!...
