Ubuntu :: Dell Latitude C640 'Flashing Screen'

Oct 30, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook to my sisters laptop (Dell Latitude C640) but there appears to be a problem with the screen going black then opening the primary window, then loading the sidebar and then going black again.

For example, I'll hover over the new bar on the left and it'll just disappear, the screen will go black then will suddenly come to life again and then disappear, go black and so on. It just cycles through that.

Oct 19, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude C840 with a nVidia GeForce4 440 Go card and the screen is reported to go to 1600x1200, 32 bpp on Wikipedia. But I am unable to choose that resolution in Slackware. last time i changed the resolution to a higher one i needed to edit the xorg.conf, and change the HorizSync setting to match the monitor. but im unable to find the specifications on the screen for the C840. is there another way of doing this ? mabye a nVidia driver or something ?

Code:
# Monitor section
# Any number of monitor sections may be present
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "My Monitor"
# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY. REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.
HorizSync 31.5 - 50.0

# HorizSync30-64 # multisync
# HorizSync31.5, 35.2 # multiple fixed sync frequencies
# HorizSync15-25, 30-50 # multiple ranges of sync frequencies
# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a comma separated list of ranges of values.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 64bit On Dell Latitude E6410 I7 Nvidia VNS 3100M - Get A Black Screen

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 64bit on a new Dell Latitude E6410 notebook. This is the Intel i7 processor with 8 Gb of RAM and Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. I can boot from my 64bit installer DVD, but once I choose either Live version, to test it out, or just go for Install, after the first selection screen where I can change the default video at the bottom, I just get a black screen, no video.

I can't find any info on installing Suse on this notebook, (I think its only be available for a couple of weeks now). What do I do to get the screen to show me the graphical installer, Or how do I make the KDE Live version run from the 64bit DVD. I also tried the 32bit version DVD, but it wouldn't give graphics either, so it seems like an X issue.

OpenSUSE Install :: DELL Latitude E6410 - Core I7 M620 With Integrated Intel HD Graphics - Blank Screen

Aug 19, 2010

I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.

One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dell Latitude E6510 Installation Black Screen?

Oct 16, 2010

I've installed ubuntu 10.04 onto my Dell Latitude e6510 (through the wubi installer), but I can't get anything except a black screen. I'm pretty new to ubuntu, but after a bit of looking around at graphics issues I found a bunch of boot parameters and tried different combinations of them. i915.modeset=0 Gave me the purple loading screen, until the screen went black and I got flashing caps lock and scroll lock lights.xforcevesa gave me a completely black screen -- not receiving power at all

I also tried noapci, acpi=off, irqpoll, and pci=routeirq as parameters. None of those had any success.I've also tried letting ubuntu boot with a black screen until I heard the African drums and pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go into the console, but the screen stayed black then as well.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 On My Dell Latitude E5400 - "Who Are You" Screen

Nov 23, 2010

I am trying to install 10.10 on my dell latitude e5400. Everything goes fine until I get to the "Who Are You" screen. I put in my name, name my computer, come up with a password. I do everything right (all green checks). Down at the bottom is says "copying files" and eventually gets to "ready when you are." However, the "forward" button is still grayed out, I can only click on the "back" button. I can't move forward. I've tried installing via usb drive and cd and have the same issue with both. It just hangs up at that point. Any ideas? Please be gentle...I am a new linux/ubuntu user.

Ubuntu :: Distro For Dell Latitude CPi D300XT?

Jun 19, 2011

I resued a Dell Latitude CPi D300XT that was getting tossed and have XP on it running a little slow but decent for basic web surfing. I saw a ..... video of someone that had Ubuntu Minimal with LXDE running on it. I could not find that but tryed Puppy Linux, Damn Small Linux, and Ubuntu 9 to 11.04 CD's in it and could not get them to to boot into the CD. I even just set the Dell to only boot from CD/DVD and would not boot any of them.

Does anyone know which Ubuntu or Linux distro I could try on a Dell Latitude CPi D300XT? The specs are Intel Pentium II 300 MHz, 256MB of RAM and 20 Gig Hard Drive.

Hardware :: What Distribution For Dell Latitude?

Nov 12, 2009

I'd really like to start using Linux, but I don't know much about it. I tried installing Mandriva One 2010, but it apparently isn't compatible with my laptop. Does anybody know what would be a good distribution to use with an old Dell Latitude CPx? I'd like to get a free bootable CD one for starters, if possible. I mainly would like to use it for surfing the Web.

Ubuntu :: Disable Built In Mic In Dell Latitude E6400

Apr 22, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my Dell Latitude E6400. Everything works great except that I cannot disable the built in microphone. I have even disabled from the BIOS but the mic continues working, this is really annoying as I do lots of calling from this computer for my work.

I have played around with the alsamixer and the sound preferences but I haven't been able to disable it or at least lower its volume.

My headset is plugged in to the mic jack and it works fine. The problem is that both the headset and the internal mic are working at the same time.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Latitude D620 - No Connection

Jul 8, 2011

I just installed 11.04 on my Dell Latitude D620, and I'm not able to get an Ethernet connection. (Which in turn means I can't get wireless drivers.) Whenever I plug in an ethernet cable to the port and select auto eth0, the networking icon on Ubuntu's status bar flickers between the obtaining wifi animation and a spinning cursor. In a couple minutes I get the "wired network - disconnected" message.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 StartX Does Not Work On Dell Latitude E5510

Jan 10, 2011

I'm trying to install the magnificent ubuntu 10.10 on my brand new Dell LATITUDE E5510. The installation works fine. I installed it with a working internet connexion ... so the drivers should be there. Then when booting, the GUI does not start I get the console instead...

I tried several things:
- run startx --> I get a blank screen where even CTRL+ALT+F1 does not work anymore

Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
--> just returns without anything on the screen, no error no nothing

- run in failsafeX mode, I get:
Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure them yourself.

Then I get the login page but it doesn't go any further, when I type my login/password it comes back to the login page...

When I do:
Code:
lspci | grep VGA
I get :
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev02)

That's all I could see... apart from that I'm not getting any error messages and I'm really stuck.. I'm running on intel Celeron 32 bit, I have checked the checksum of my CD...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Not Working - Dell Latitude E6510

Mar 23, 2011

I've recently partitioned off a section of my hard drive to run Ubuntu from and I'm having trouble with the network connections. In my device manager of Windows 7, it lists that my network adapters are

1. DW1520 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card

2. Intel(R) 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection

Is there something I'm not doing right in order to allow me to connect to a wireless connection? Are these devices even enabled in Linux systems?

Software :: Pointer Freezes Everything On Ubuntu 9.10 DELL Latitude E6510?

On Linux the memory test declare "too small lower memory". No problems with windows (I tried also wubi, independently, but it hangs immediately going blank after upgrading packages).

General :: Sound Has Totally Gone On Dell Latitude Computer

Apr 7, 2011

A friend lent me their Ubuntu book but I can't understand it and could not find anything about the sound suddenly going from the speaker on Monday night. I went to Sony Ericsson's site to check something on my account and loud music suddenly started blaring out so I pressed the Fn button and End which muted it. However, I forgot to take it off before closing down for the night and as of Tuesday morning I have no sound. Would me leaving mute on all night have screwed something up or has it just suddenly gone? I am so upset as I cannot afford to get another laptop as not working and this is my last resort since my original Compaq one died.

I appreciate any "Helpful" solutions. Not in techy but layman's terms please as I won't understand. Also if you do reply, I am in the UK and also don't get notifications so I am not being rude if I can't get back to you quickly. I will be going to bed now.

Ubuntu Networking :: Enable A Wifi Antenna, Dell Latitude 13 / Vostro 13?

Have an odd problem on a Dell Latitude 13 w/ a Intel WiFi 5100 card. The wifi antenna is disabled on startup into Ubuntu 10.04/64-bit. There's no hardware enable/disable that I can find.I have tried "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" to enable it, the light for the wifi antenna comes on, but still no luck.I know the wifi works in Ubuntu, because if i load windows first, then reset into Ubuntu, once in a while it works just fine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Dell Latitude CPx Dynex Wireless Card Not Working

Mar 18, 2011

I have a 10 year old Dell Latitude CPx that has no ethernet or modem ports, and the only way to connect to the internet is the Dynex Wireless G DX-BNBC PCMCIA card. It came with Windows 98, and I put Xubuntu on it for a while. I believe it was Xubuntu 8 or 9. Back then I had no clue what to do whatsoever, so after a couple weeks removed it and put Windows 2000 on it. It worked, I used it for a while, but it was slow and 2000 took up a lot of space on the 12gb hard drive after all the updates. I left it forgotten and gathering dust for the past year.

Then a few days ago I discovered Lubuntu 10.10, and from what I've seen so far it is definitely a lot more compact and faster than 2000. However, the wireless card still won't work. It's somewhat recognized, because whenever I unplug it and plug it in a bubble pops up saying "you've been disconnected from the network"... which is odd, since it never says I'm connected, and says that the firmware is missing for this card. Anyway, I discovered something this time. By running "lspci -nn | grep -i 14e4":

Hardware :: Getting Wifi Card To Work On Dell Latitude D610 Using Ubuntu 9.10?

Mar 15, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 a a Dell D610 that is running a broadcom BMC943 internal wifi adapter. I've tried installing the wifi drivers off of Dell's website using the ndisgtk gui setup. It appears that whenever I setup the driver the OS can't apply it. It states that the wifi adapter is not on or installed. Here is what I get when I run iwconfig and lspci -n.

iwconfig:
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
lspci -n:
00:00.0 0600: 8086:2590 (rev 03)
00:02.0 0300: 8086:2592 (rev 03)

[Code].....

I've also edited the blacklist.conf file as well with no luck. I've spent 2 days trying to figure this out with no luck at all.
