I have been using Linux Mint for several months now--I installed it on an old ThinkPad in December--but I'm still pretty ignorant when it comes to the technical workings of the OS. A few days ago I installed it on my primary machine. The ThinkPad has had no major issues; however, my Probook does not seem to like LM very much.
Yesterday I had to reinstall the OS and start from scratch because I could not figure out how to solve the problem in question. After getting past the encryption screen my keyboard became unresponsive. I tried connecting an external keyboard, installing xscreensaver, and a couple other tactics suggested on this and other forums, all to no avail. (I found no thread for this exact problem.)
I'm hoping someone can dissect the issue and suggest ways I can prevent this--or other errors--from happening in the future. Right now I'm hesitant to store any data on this machine, and as I had mentioned, it's my primary PC.
Here's its info:
