Preferred Solution: Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Motherboard with Ubuntu/Linux support

Is there a specific component on that motherboard that you're having problems with? I can't imagine that the motherboard is not "compatible" with linux - in fact, I've found threads with people using Ubuntu with that mobo. I also find it odd that you'd have a Windows Vista issue with that mobo since most of the users I see online who use it are running Vista or 7 64-bit. Perhaps you have a faulty motherboard and it's not a problem with the model itself.

Welcome to TSF!!

This sounds like you are having problems installing Windows, I will move this to the windows vista forum as that is what you have listed as an OS. Hope you are able to get this figured out. I am sure the wonderful people in the window forum will be able to help you out.

Hi, I am planning to buy a HP notebook and want to run it as a Win10/Ubuntu dual boot. I would like to buy either the HP Spectre x360 13-4116na or HP ENVY x360 15-w101na.I have seen threads in this and other forums that a dual boot is possible and that there are some problems with the sound, but that there are solutions for these problems. But I have seen threads complaining about problems with graphic cards and especially some people saying that they deliberately chose NOT a QHD screens as if Ubuntu would not be able to deal with this higher resolution. Sounds unlikely to me, but could this pose a problem for Ubuntu with those two models I mentioned? Thanks for helping me to choose the right computer.ToruOkada

Win Win XP Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot I have a PC that is currently a dual boot between Windows Ultimate and Ubuntu Linux Hardy Heron The two operating systems are on separate physical drives Ubunutu is on the PC s original gig drive the primary and Win is on a TB Seagate internal drive that I added later the slave I already discussed dual booting with Ubuntu and Win on a Linux forum I installed each OS completely independently of the other I installed Ubuntu first without the other drive installed I later disconnected the GB primary drive and installed Windows to the TB drive as if Ubuntu were not even present on the PC Later I reconnected and edited a file known as menu lst in Ubuntu s feature known as Grub Grub looks at the file and gives me the choice of Windows or Ubuntu when I boot up Now it s a long story but I need to add Windows XP to Linux XP/Ubuntu Tri-boot Win 7/Win my choices I m told on the Ubuntu forum that I can temporarily Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot disconnect the Ubuntu drive and set up XP on the TB drive as a dual boot with Bootloader handling the choice between Win and XP The idea is to get it running right and later reconnect the Ubuntu drive Grub will give me the choice between Ubuntu and Windows then if I choose Windows Bootloader will give me the choice between Win and XP I could live with that So the Ubuntu drive is disconnected We don t have to worry about that in this thread If I have any trouble with Grub I ll address it on the Linux board I ve found Sevenforums guide to setting up a Win Win XP dual boot Dual Boot Installation with Windows and XP I notice in the instructions it says you need to load SATA drivers during the XP install if you have a SATA drive because otherwise the XP install program will not find the drive you want to install XP on if is already installed However I began XP s install program and it appears to be finding my drives just fine I ve partitioned gig for XP with a utility known as EaseUS Partitioner and labeled it Drive X in Win The Win XP installer found it just fine as it did my C drive Here s what I m seeing It s the drive that the XP installer has labeled G Partition Win XP is the label I gave it in the partition utility You ll see directly above it Partition that is installed on the one I want to keep on I can also see that the XP installer has found my thumb drives Drive I Partition Toshiba is one If need be I could use that to store the SATA drivers The instructions talk about storing those drivers on a floppy What s a floppy My PC does not have a floppy drive So what s the verdict Am I okay to proceed with the install of XP without bothering with SATA drivers or do I need to make them accessible on my Toshiba thumb drive My DVD drive is occupied by my XP install disk

A:Win 7/Win XP/Ubuntu Linux Tri-boot

Tom, I think the answer to your question is on the first sentence of the Tutorial how to load the SATA drivers: "When you install Win XP, setup can not find your Hard Drive."

So, if setup can find your HD, you should be good to go.

One remark: installing XP after Windows 7 is a bit more complicated, you will have to repair Windows 7 boot file to add XP. You have mentioned the tutorial, so you shoudl be good to go. I just highlight it since it can be a stumbling block.

Regarding the floppy disk thing, from what I know it is XP's idiosyncrasy, it doesn't allow drivers to be loaded with USB drives. It is from a time there were no USB drives...

I have a dual boot with ubuntu and 7, right now i am using ubuntu and the look seems very crisp compared to windows. I am not talking about the theme, its the text and the way it looks when using the browser. To me i would say maybe it has a better resolution, thats the best way i can describe it. I really have no idea how to use ubuntu so i will stick with windows but its just very sharp and clean how linux looks.

A:Give windows the linux/ ubuntu look?

That's a strange post, because 9 times out of 10, the complaints seem to go the other way.

As a Ubuntu user myself, I haven't noticed what you are describing, so I'm unsure how to translate it to the Windows world. For me, things look good in both Ubuntu and Windows 7.

I used to have two computers running Windows (a desktop running XP Professional and a laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium). I replaced the XP computer with a Linux Ubuntu 8.10 64 bit. I had a network setup on both Windows computers and when I switched to the Linux computer, the network stoped working. Are there any special settings that the windows computer has to h ave in order to work with Samba (Linux Share Server)? Would it help if I remove all the networks and shares from the Vista computer and set it up again? That said, how do I do that on Vista? As always, thanks in advance for your help.

Linux uses a different format for HDDs. I suggest downloading the free GPARTED and use your burning program to create the bootable CD from the .iso file, boot to it and delete the parition/s to give the HDD a clean slate for Windows. My Linux Mint has built in support for burning.

I have connected a Canon Pixma 450 printer to my computer via USB cable. The computer is operating on ubuntu 12.04. The system recognises the printer and I follow the procedure step by step to set up the printer. Eventually I reach the stage where a window opens asking if I want to print a test page. I accept, but after a moment or two a window opens saying : CUPS Server error. Can anyone tell me how to resolve this. The printer works fine on another computer with Windows 8.

Please someone help me here. After all the trouble I went though getting Linux on this computer (just error after error until I reburned 7.04 live cd to a cd at 1x burn speed instead of max speed and it installed fine) It figures Id get a Problem when the OS is actually installed.... I swear If stuff like this keeps up Its gonna turn a Linux Newb into a linux hater, Its my first time using the OS and so far the Ubuntu Forums are proving to be slow and not giving me any fix suggestions.

I have a Lite On CD burner/DVD burner Combo Drive, (SATA)

Now once in linux I tried to back up some media files and stuff from a Burnt CD well I inserted the CD and nothing happened, so I manually searched for the CD Drive. Went to Places>Computer>CD-ROM1 Figured hey there it is, double clicked and got this.

Unable to mount the selected volume
mount: special device /dev/scd0 does not exist

Yea so basically the CD Drive does not exist to Linux.

Im stuck here, Im a newb to this OS and IM thinking "WTF How does it NOT recognize the existence of my CD Drive when crappy ol' windows xp (which Im keeping around for gaming) sees it just fine.

At the suggestions of friends and the one person on the Linux boards whos waaaaay slow responding and making me impatient I have collected the following data and of course due to impatience of problem resolution Im posting here too hoping ONE of the two forums Im visiting will get me a quick fix before the days out Cause Beyond this issue I LIKE ubuntu, I just will not KEEP Ubuntu on this system If I cant effin use my Combo Drive cause Why Should I keep an OS I cant use my hardware with?

Hello friends,

I would like to install Linux Ubuntu on my laptop alongside Windows using dual boot.
However, people keep telling me that it is not a good idea this to be done on a laptop because of driver comparability and stuff like that.

So is it OK if dual boot Ubuntu and Windows on a laptop or it is a terrible idea?

Best Regards

A:Dual boot Windows and Linux Ubuntu

I'm against multi-booting of any kind. I believe in keeping it simple, so if you want to play around with Ubuntu, especially if you are worried about compatibility, virtualize it. It's 100% compatible with VirtualBox.

I am currently running a dual boot setup with Ununtu 12.10 x64 and Windows 7 Home Premium x64 I was wondering if I could add Linux Mint 14 to the setup. Is this possible? I tried installing it 'alongside windows' but it said i have to uninstall Ubuntu. I haven't done that much work with system booting as of yet but i catch on pretty quick with this sort of stuff. Also, does anyone have a link to where I could download the correct version of Linux Mint 14 for my PC? I have downloaded one already but am not sure whether or not it is the right one. Then name is 'linuxmint-14.1-mate-dvd-64bit.iso'. I would also like a link to a detailed tutorial on how to setup what I'm looking for and a list of recommended software (I've got Paragon Partition Manager 12 and EasyBCD 2.2).

Thanks in advance,


A:Multiboot: Windows 7, Ubuntu 12.10, Linux Mint 14?

It should be possible, I used to have a tripple boot myself for a while. Just make sure you add Mint to Grub.

Current version of Mint:
Download - Linux Mint

Oke, first you'll need to check if you have an empty partition to install Mint on. If not, create one.
You can check this in "disk management".

If you have enough partitions Ubuntu should stop giving you the uninstall message, and Mint should just install itself using the default installer.

And for the detailed toturial:
Video toturial
Official user guide

And finally the software:
Lots and lots of programs
The official Linux Mint software portal (I recommend using this one)

Good luck and keep us posted on your progress!

Hi, i have problem with my internet connection. So here it is:
I have ADSL Wireless router TP LINK TD-W8901G. Its connected by ethernet cable to my PC (uses Windows 7) , and all works fine.
Few days ago, I've got laptop Lenovo SL-510 and I've installed Linux Ubuntu 10.10. So, i attached antenna to router, configured router to emitt wireless signal. I start my laptop, he can see and connect to wireless network I've made, but cant ping/open any page. Pinging router IP was sucessfull.
I was experimenting about IPs/subnets/ and oher stuff, but without success.
ipconfig from PC and ifconfig form laptop(Linux ubuntu 10.10) attached!
Please advise!
Sorry for potential English mistakes.

A:Solved: Conected to router, but no conectivity (Linux Ubuntu)

Pretty sure the problem is the way you have the TP LINK TD-W8901G configured. Not sure how you have it, but we shouldn't be seeing that "PPP adapter BIHnet ADSL" with a public IP address on your PC.

The modem/router should be configured as both a modem and "full" router; the WAN (Internet) section of the router part should specify any needed PPPoE and username/password. Computers connected to the router by wireless or ethernet should not be specifying any PPPoE.

There is an issue with the current Kernel that Ubuntu is using with all distro's based off of it, with the 15.04 series that is an odd release before the next LTS, which will be 16.04. The issue is with WiFi not staying connected. The suggested fix right now is to use NDiswrapper and use the Windows drivers instead of the ones that the Ubuntu distro's are using for the Intel adapters.

This has been an ongoing issue with not only the Intel adapters, but also with the RaLink ones. There is an open Bug report that dates back to when this problem was found with the 13.10 release.

Anyone planning on using a Ubuntu based distro for a NAS, Gateway, experiment with. Just be cautious that when your WiFi disconnects, it is not a problem with the hardware.

Which brings me to this, how do I get online if Ubuntu doesnt recognize the ethernet card? I tried 2, and I downloaded drivers...except there for windows, which is all I could find. I couldnt find anything for Linux on either card.

The ethernet card that I want to use is - 3com 3c905-tx. The other one is a couple versions older. The 3com website doesnt have a linux driver for it. So, can I put it in the bios prior to loading or something? How does it work with Linux? Ive probably spent 1hr total on the OS. Sorry for the lack of knowledge and possibly newbie question.

A:Windows XP boot failure after Ubuntu linux installation


Media Center (MCE) is a variation of XP Pro.

I'm not even sure that you could use an XP Pro version to "recover" an XP MCE system, since I thought that all those systems utilize recovery partitions/CDs which have been prepared by the manufacturer of the system.

These recovery/restore CDs/partitions...are not the same as an XP install CD, since they contain programs, drivers, and other modifications which might have been put in by the manufacturer.

I could be wrong.

I have a gateway laptop which at one time had windows 7. Windows started acting up, so I tried a recovery from within windows only to have it fail. I ordered from gateway the recovery disks. While waiting for the disks, I loaded the entire HD with the latest version of Ubuntu just curious i guess. I now have the gateway windows 7 recovery dvd's and it will not recover because it doesn't seem to recognize the Linux partition. Without the Microsoft Windows 7 install disk (only have gateway's recovery disks). How can I remove the Linux partition?

Any advice or help would be greatful.

so it makes a wireless works as a LAN ( detected as a LAN but working as WLAN!)

A:Booting Error, MBR and Bootrec Related, Uninstalled Ubuntu Linux 11.04

With diskpart make NTFS 350 GB partition active.

Run DVD - 'Automatic Repair'.
The first run should do. If errors do a second run.

Manually you have only to write a Windows 7 MBR and a Partition Boot Record
on your E: drive (NTFS). 'bootsect.exe' can do the manual step.
(check exact syntax for command - system drive is default, specify windows folder as e:\windows)

A:trouble installing fedora 14 and ubuntu after deleting linux partition

Be careful with Fedora 14. You have separate partitions and one thing Fedora does is merge all partitions into one logical volume group. You have a backup
partition which contains drivers for your computer/laptop, ideally I would make a copy of this data before you install.

Is there some reason you prefer Fedora over Ubuntu? Both use Gnome 2.32 as the desktop, with the addition that Ubuntu 11.04 will install Unity desktop as well.

Unfortunately you cant tell much from the windows partition manager as drives are just assigned a letter, and you can only have 4 primary partitions.
Post on the linux forum if youre happy with your windows setup, Wmorri is Fedora Ambassador, but when you do please provide the following information.
Boot with the Ubuntu CD in Live mode (or try before installing). It will pick up your network, open a terminal and post output of:

I burned the Damn Small Linux (DSL) ISO to a CD, placed it in the drive, restarted the machine and told it to boot from CD in the boot menu. This method worked for Ubuntu, but not for DSL.

I get a blank text screen for a few seconds, then the "Windows XP did not start correctly" menu.

When I tried Ubuntu (and KUbuntu, for that matter) I just put in the disk and restarted the computer. I didn't even have to use the boot menu.

The only difference is that I burned the DSL CD on a different computer because my burner stopped working.

There are hundreds of files on the download mirrors, but I'm all but certain I've got the right one. It's called "dsl-3.4.2.iso".

I have an HP Compaq BIOS, that's all Everest will tell me.

A:can't enter BIOS when booting (Win7 / Ubuntu Linux dual boot system)

Best to keep in mind that the BIOS is completely different from ANY operating system. There is no connection between the two things, other than the BIOS handing off control to an OS.

You press DEL (or whatever key enters the BIOS) before any operating system begins to start up.
You can start pressing the key repeatedly (once a second) just as soon as you hear the POST beep or see anything happen on the display screen.
Once you reach the Grub loader it is too late. Start over.

You can't get into the BIOS from an operating system. You can only shut down and/or restart.
Nothing in the operating system's registry has anything to do with your system's BIOS, other than communicating with it initially.

It can read NTFS no problem.

A:What Type Of USB Support Does Linux Have?

Uhm.. The power is always supplied to all USB devices and you have to turn off the power manually per device or port. It is not a "feature", but an inherent property of USB. Most USB devices wouldn't even work if they didn't get power from the port.

I would guess it's a "feature" of your iPod (needs the computer to tell it to charge itself?) or some serious bug in Windows drivers and/or your ancient hardware. Do the USB ports work with your Windows at all? Have you used a mouse or a flash drive or something?

Maybe get a PCI USB 2.0 controller card? You would get more speed and new drivers. Make sure that Windows 98 is supported by the device!

Hi there
Anybody running a Windows 8.1 Virtual machine from a LINUX host with 3-D support working. If so what distro are you using. (VMware player / workstation).

I've tried SUSE and DEBIAN - the VM runs perfectly except I can't get 3-D support or hardware graphics acceleration.

Under Windows as host (W7) no problem !!.


A:Windows 8.1 under Linux - which distro for 3-D support

Hi Jimbo,

You should try installing the certified drivers for the graphics card from Nvidia or AMD instead of standard installed ones, for some distro's use limited opensource versions like the nouveau driver.

Also see specific VMware info about what you need:
That's for a host,
It says WS5.5, but should still apply on newer releases, use the mentioned tools to get info about the graphic drivers.

For a guest, W8, check to see if 3D is on in the VMX file itself:
some example for Ubuntu drivers or install procedures:
How to install Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu 13.04


Although I'm not familiar with AMD/ATI cards, similar packages should exist:

Official binary releases, which are recommemded, also exist on the official sites, Nvidia, AMD.

For Intel I'm not sure what for driver will be used, I've seen something reported as Tungsten which provided pretty good basic acceleration a while back.

So in the end you'll need to install the latest official graphic driver you can get for your distro, then see That OpenGL is running well (run glxinfo and glxgears + some other benchmarking tools* are nice to see).

*System profiler and benchmark:
Good luck.

There are two breeds of linux driver for AMD/ATI: The FOSS drivers, such as the xorg radeon and radeonhd divers and the closed source ATI proprietary driver: known as fglrx. For your card, based on the evergreen GPU, you are going to be looking at using fglrx as the support for evergreen is far from complete in the open drivers at present.

No idea with regards to TV tuner cards.

You are asking this question at the wrong place however. This is not a linux community/support forum. Head over the phoronix forums, linuxquestions or go the distro specific forum (i.e. in your case the ubuntu forums).

A:which Linux/window OS fully support my laptop hp 15-ac 122t...

It came with FreeDOS, obviously. 32 bit Windows was not a good choice due to driver unavailability and you have hardware that should be running a 64 bit OS. There is no operating system that is going to "just work" without any required drivers and configuration. Windows 7 64 bit and higher can be made to work with downloads from this site and there are so many Linux distributions it is impossible to discuss them all and how to install them. I personally use Kubuntu and they just introduced 16.04 (Xenial) Long Term Support which would likely install with very little post-install configuration needed: This says AMD64 but it is also for Intel 64 bit capable processors which yours is. Download it and use a burning program to author the .iso onto a finished DVD-ROM installation disk and boot from it. Follow the onscreen prompts. If you are installing only Kubuntu the default options will work fine.  Let us know if you need more help.

i wish to upgrade the memory to 3gb.i recently bought a single chip of 2gb ddr2.
but the intel website says maximum supported ram for the mobo is 2gb.
when i inserted the ram the OS detected it.(got both vista & xp).
there wasn't a considerable increase in performance though.(gaming etc.)
the new chip speed is 800. first chip has a speed of 667.
there might be a problem with dual channel feature also.
is 3gb possible on this board?
shall i continue using the new chip along with the old one or shall i return the 2gb chip and get a 1gb and settle for a total of 2gb ?

A:Motherboard RAM support

From what i have read, that motherboard will only support 2gig of ram.
What has happened is by mixing the two speeds of ram, the system is running at the lower speed.
So your best bet will be to remove the 1gig stick and only use the 2gig stick.
