Re: Blank screen after login, terminal login failed.

I don't know why. but if you know what to do from here that would be great cause i'm still stuck Maybe you'll find the solution if consider that "login incorrect" include both user name and password. We often forget that our user name is quite different than the label used is MDM, LMD or KDM window...

Re: UEFI/EFI (Win 8.1): Can't boot from USB or DVD

If those devices (USB or DVD) are not UEFI compatibles can't boot in UEFI mode, only in Legacy. Depending on your UEFI/BIOS (Power on and press F2 while the Toshiba logo is displayed to enter the UEFI Setup Menu), would have an option UEFI + legacy or UEFI/CSM and you will able to set device order (...

Happy to hear this. :) Boot Info report would help us trying to dual boot w/o reinstalling, but I think you have chosen the best option (reinstalling). About wifi problem, it's a hardware matter and you would find specific solutions in that forum . First, search in that section with your wifi card a...

Re: Need help with Linux Mint 17 and UEFI/EFI with Lenovo G5

1. Created a live USB using YUMI (Not sure if it is EFI supported or not) No, it is not supported as per pendrivelinux web. You will need to use another USB live creator maybe Unetbootin, Universal USB, Lili, but sure Rufus works for me in Windows. Is there anything I need to do to fix the grub loa...

try this:

Do not forget to reboot (not log-off) each time you change new drivers. If not try this with Nvidia 349.

Is it the same computer that froze on suspend? Why didn't you update kernel?

Re: System froze after install of Mint 17.1 "can't boot linu

It seems to be related to loader placement. Did you install Mint in the same disk where Windows is installed? If it is so, maybe the loader was placed in the other disk (you can try changing boot device on BIOS settting) or in a partition ( GRUB need to be placed in sda or sdb not in sda1, sda2,..sd...

Re: Dual Boot Win 8.1 with Mint 17

Disable Secure Boot in UEFI setting, if any, also Hibernation and fast start-up in Windows and try again with Windows Disk Manager (remember you need to reboot in Windows to see changes are done and then try install again).

Re: screen freezes but mouse moves

It is depending on your DE. As jimallynIn said, in Cinnamon, Alt+F2 open a "command box" (a one-line shell) that is quite different than a "terminal" or a "console session" (tty1). In other hand, please review you Firefox preferences, in particular Advanced>General browsing options. Check "use hardw...
