Re: Installation stops Mint 13

I found if you leave it long enough it suddenly springs to life and starts copying files after 20 or 30 min .

tried Ubuntu 12.04 and it was just the same finaly installed but Grub seems to be at the wrong resolution so can't see a thing .

trying Mint mate 64 again now.

Re: Update manager could not connect to internet

I tried changing the delay but it didn't work so Installed Mint 9 and I'm getting the same message .

I'm now using another Mint 9 on another machine I Installed the day after it was released and that's showing the same could not connect so it's maybe not my system that's at fault.

Menu stays up after selecting {SOLVED}

This is my second install of mint and doesn't operate as smoothly as my other one on older hardware I'm sure the menu behaves differently on this machine as I have to click the mouse to make the menu drop back down .

I am using a Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 and 1GB ram
