General :: Sony Laptop Inbuilt Camera Does Not Work With Ubuntu 10.04

Dec 12, 2010

I run Ubuntu 10.04 on a Sony FZ-VGN15C Laptop. On start-up of Ubuntu I get two error messages including '...Video : Failed...' (the message is too fast to be read completely) This might relate to the fact that my built in camera does not work with Skype or Cheese Webcam Booth. The webcam type is VGP-VCC4 by RICOH.

Ubuntu :: Inbuilt Webcam Not Detected?

Jul 20, 2011

My Ubuntu 10.04 will not detect the inbuilt webcam on my Compaq Presario CQ61 laptop computer. This laptop only runs Ubuntu as I removed Windows when I got it home new from the shop a few years back. Haven't tried to get the webcam working until now. I have downloaded "Cheese" and when I run it I get the message No Device Found.I have also tried gstreamer-properties in a terminal and get the message video for linux 2 (v4l2): Cannot identify device '/dev/video0'

is it a lost cause to get my webcam working?

General :: Partitioning And Installing To Old Compaq Laptop

Nov 14, 2009

I'm new to linux and have an old laptop did clean reinstall windows 98 but no updates, and now burnt iso image to cd on other pc and used it to try running puppy linux 3.01 on the compaq armada laptop (spec 56.0MB RAM, AMD-K6(tm)-III Processor used space 645MB free 3.80GB). I chose this older version as I think I'd read that this is more suitable for older slow computers.

I am interested in running linux fully without windows 98 or with it. Running from CD I have to select Xvesa I think as Xorg didn't seem to work. Tried partitioning but in GParted find myself unable to amend the size of partitions - got yellow exclamation mark next to the partitions. What I see is: greyed out unallocated 7.38MB, then /dev/hda1 yellow exclamation mark filesystem unknown 206.72MB, /dev/hda2 yellow exclamation fat32 4.45GB.

It does not allow resizing when I try. Associated with the yellow exclamation marks is the warning "unable to read the contents of this filesystem! Because of this some operations may be unavailable. I have done a defragment of C in windows already. (Also haven't been able to connect to internet on linnux with my wireless card.)

General :: Compaq R4000 Laptop Randomly Locking Up?

Mar 12, 2010

I have a Compaq R4000 laptop with 2GB of RAM, running Ubuntu Linux 9.10. It is randomly locking up on me, approximately once every two days. I have a second partition with Windows XP Home installed, and I have had the system lock up in XP as well, meaning I believe this is a hardware issue. I have run two passes of Memtest86+ with no errors.The system has a fan that has died, so I initially suspected overheating. However the system just locked up on me while I was in the middle of typing a script to warn me / shut down if the temperature was too high. When the lockup happened the temperature was 88F, so I am now starting to believe that may not be the issue.When the system locks up, I cannot SSH in nor ping it. Nothing shows in syslog when I reboot. I have configured it to send syslog messages to a local server as well and no messages appear on that server when the lockup happens.

Ubuntu :: Digital Camera Not Being Detected In U10.04 / What To Do?

Jun 5, 2010

I'm having some problems with Ubuntu 10.04 64bit finding my digital camera (Nikon CoolPix S4000). For whatever reason, when I plug in the camera via USB connection, Ubuntu will not detect it. The odd thing is that on my old Ubuntu 9.04 32bit install my camera was detected fine (it appeared as an icon on the desktop, akin to a flashdrive or any other mounted drive).

Ubuntu :: Camera Not Detected After Upgrade To 10.10 / Do That?

Fedora Hardware :: Camera Not Detected In F15/LXDE?

My previous laptop died (HD failure, etc.) so I just put F15/LXDE on a Dell Latitude D610. All updates applied. I inserted my Canon Powershot A480 in a USB port, but o/s doesn't seem to react.

Other USB devices are detected, mounted and recognized (external HD, memory stick, etc.), but not the camera. what I should do to get the camera recognized?

Edit: DigiKam and Digikam libs are installed and system was rebooted. Still no camera detection.

Ubuntu Installation :: HP Compaq 621 Laptop Cannot Boot?

Feb 17, 2011

I have been using Ubuntu for years. I just bought a new laptop - HP Compaq 621. Hardware settings:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T6570 2.10GHz
Memory: 1GB
ROM Date & revision: 01/07/2011, 68PVI Ver. F.09
Video BIOS Revision: ATI 01/05/2011

I followed exactly what is described on Ubuntu [URL] Believe me, I burned image (not .iso data) to CD, but BIOS won't boot from the Ubuntu bootable CD. I also created a USB stick, again BIOS won't boot from the Ubuntu bootable USB (I selected to boot from USB first) stick. I tried with Desktop 10.10 32bit, 10.10 64bit, 10.04 32bit, and 10.04 64bit.

I also tried with my old Ubuntu Desktop 8.04 64bit bootable CD, which my very old Compaq Laptop installed. It allows me to see the menu. I selected "Safe mode" to install Ubuntu. But it gives me the error message: "udevd-event [1412] run_program /sbin/modprobe"

how I can install Ubuntu on my HP Compaq 621 Laptop?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Hangs On Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop

Jun 16, 2011

I'm trying to install Lubuntu 11.04 CD on a Compaq Presario M2000 Laptop to replace XP.
Processor: Intel Pentium Celeron M
RAM: 256mb
Existing O/S XP SP3 (boots & runs but is very slow)
Hard Drive 40GB (28Gb free)

Installation hangs about 1 minute after selecting language in both try Lubuntu & install Lubuntu modes. Have also left the laptop running all night to see if it was just a slow install. Have tried various other disks (Xbuntu, Puppy, Mint, Lubuntu 10.04), which have worked on other PC/laptops ok, but all stall after the language settings. Have tried burning the Lunbuntu iso with both Windows & Ubuntu at slow speeds & have verified the burnt iso. The laptop BIOS cannot be set to boot from usb, so an external CD or USB stick installation may not work? The BIOS has been updated to the latest one on the Compaq web site this morning. Although I have installed a few flavours of Linux on various hardware, I'm still a real Linux newbie. Can Lubuntu be installed within Windows, but still format the hard drive to ext2/3 ?

Ubuntu :: Converting Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop To The Full OS?

Jun 20, 2011

New member here. Was introduced to Ubuntu by the IT guy at my last place of work and liked it so much, I ran WUBI on my laptop for a couple of months before taking the plunge and today fully converting my Compaq Presario CQ56 Laptop to the full Ubuntu OS.

The only issue I have is I have no sound whatsoever. I have seen some suggestions where you should check the hardware drivers and when I do that the only driver that appears is for ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. It also says this driver is active and currently in use.

So, can anyone else offer some help. I love the system and the way it does everything but it needs sound. Incidentally when I ran WUBI (while Windows 7 was on there) I did not have a problem with the sound!

Customer having a gigabit switch an their end, when they connect it in the network, atfirst it displays the network status in the systray that it continouly connecting and disconnecting to/from network. After couple of minutes it remains on 10 Mbps. Scan the laptop for virus using Symantec, avast, macafee etc. But still the problem persist.

Hardware :: Installing Memory In Compaq R3000 Laptop ?

Jan 9, 2010

I installed a 1GB PC2700 SODIMM in my Compaq R3000 Athlon 64 laptop.

I am currently running Mint 7 (32 bit), 2.6.28-11-generic.

I removed one of my two 256MB sticks and installed the new 1GB stick.

When I installed the memory, the BIOS was able to recognize it, saying I had 1.25 GB of memory.

However, Linux refused to boot.

When I did a Memtest, I got nothing - it scanned the 768k of system memory in a fraction of a second, and then rebooted. It couldn't see either my new 1GB stick or my old 256MB stick.

Did I install the wrong type of RAM? Was the stick invalid?

CentOS 5 :: Wireless Not Working On HP Compaq 6715s Laptop?

May 19, 2009

I've installed CENTOS 5.3 on my laptop, on dual boot with windows xp. The problem is that my wireless network manager doesn't find any networks. Another laptop with fedora 10 installed finds the network, so the problem is not the network. I guess it's a problem with the wireless driver / firmware, as i had this problem on fedora some time ago, and i've solved installing the firmware. Now i've installed the firmware, i rebooted, and it still doesn't find any network.
