Hi, i am the owner from an HP 17-AK045NF, with a amd video card
You might try the beta version of Mint 19 on a flash drive to see if that boots. It's possible that whatever version you're currently trying to use doesn't have full AMD support in the kernel.

You might try installing pavucontrol from the software manager. See if setting the audio there works for you.

I was hoping there might be someone on this forum who is familiar with both QNap NASs and Linux Mint.
It's linux. Familiarity with QNAP NAS isn't required.

Yes but I'm wondering if the iGPU or driver themselves supports that resolution.
I was under he impression that the driver is named "Nouveau", as for the IGPU
Nouveau is the open source nVidia driver.

Hi Catweazel, altair,
