Re: Installed SSD but fan constantly running

Thanks much kato181 for your answer. My system is running Cinnamon (Linux MInt 17 qiana, on intel atom). Ironically, the fan seems to be working less today, it only started functioning as I logged in to the forum to type this. So I suppose I will worry not about it and keep using the external fan wh...

Installed SSD but fan constantly running

Hello, apologies if no other forum seemed like a good match for my question. In an attempt to upgrade a Sony Vaio VPCW210AL with an intel atom processor that I still use for convenience sometimes, I installed a new larger battery and a Crucial BX500 480GB 3D NAND SATA 2.5-Inch Internal SSD - CT480BX...

Re: mint 19.0 constant crash at start up

I understand you were able to install the operating system but it won't start normally. If you have an equipment with 32-bit architecture, here are some things to consider: 1. make sure y...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Finally, I am hoping someone can help me with this temporary fix to my wifi problem. I have been using a small, plug-and-play, usb network adapter which works just fine. Today I got a bigger usb adapter which has support for linux and would like to give it a try. I downloaded the drivers and, to my ...

The current state of the equipment is: I performed the Nth installation and since then I have only ran usual updates, including kernel updates, have installed dri...

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

Hi Andy. Indeed, I have not tried to install older versions of Linux Mint on this machine. My reasoning, on one hand, is that I think the hardware is, as you put it, "too new" and that if LM19 does not currently supports my Realtek RTL8821CE 802.11ac PCIe Wireless Network Adapter, natively, older ve...

Thanks again, JeremyB. I will try to be succinct this time.

Re: LM19 WiFi not showing in network settings

HELP! I think reinstalling was a bad idea. In addition to missing wifi, now I have lost audio as well, more precisely, I cannot hear videos on youtube on chromium. Loss of audio must have happened when I reinstalled the system. I was hoping that another reinstall WITHOUT updating the kernel (I'm usi...

Re: Dual boot Mint 19 with win 10 - problem with grub

Thanks Helix. Freeing space on W10, then preparing it with GParted, choosing the "something else" option and keeping the laptop unplugged from the internet did the trick for me. Now I am facing a serious issue I can't get pass through: wifi will not show in network settings. I have gotten good help ...

Hi JeremyB. I tried your suggestion and even though I experienced no errors (results shown below), WiFi still won't show in my network settings.
