Ubuntu Installation :: Getting 10.04 On Dell 2600 Laptop Not Working?

Jul 13, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 On my Laptop and it is not working I think it has something to do with the graphics. When I reboot my computer with the CD or Dual Boot (from using Windows Installer) the screen looks very faded,flashy or just not showing up like the quality of its regular Windows Start Up. It also won't show very much just a real messed up screen with blotchy images and very flash almost like when you push down a Game Boy or a Laptop Screen.My Model is a Inspiron model 2600 it has a 1.13GHz with 512 Mb of RAM

General :: Fedora 14 On Dell Inspiron 2600 No Keyboard Or Trackpad Response

Feb 20, 2011

I am able to boot Fedora 14 to the GUI, log in on the keyboard, see the desktop, and then I get no response from the laptop's keyboard or trackpad.

I do not know how to obtain hardware specifics on my keyboard or touchpad, so perhaps that would be good info for me to start with...

BTW my ultimate goal is to run an Amahi server on the laptop. 2600 has a pentium III 1.13GHz processor and 512Mb RAM

Ubuntu Servers :: 10.04 Dell Poweredge 2600 Server Locks Up At 94% On Detecting Network Hardware?

Oct 31, 2010

So basically what I am trying to do is install Ubuntu 10.04 on a Dell Poweredge 2600 server. Right now I dont care wither I get the server version or the desktop version, I just need to get it on their. this is what I have run into. When installing the regular Ubuntu 10.04 desktop for 32bit, the server just locks up on the very first ubuntu install screen and the keyboard lights just start blinking non stop. When I use the server version, the server get to the Detecting Network Hardware and locks up at 94% and the keyboard will also start blinking nonstop. I have looked all over for an answer to this problem and have yet to find one. This guy figured out how to make it work but he never mentioned what version he was using. [URL]..

On this server I have 6 HDs, 5 of them are RAID 0 with 1 Hot Spare. I have also tried using the ubuntu-10.04.1-alternate-i386.iso.torrent and still had the same problem. I have spent the last 3 days searching all over google and the forum to an answer but had no luck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dell Laptop D610 Microphone Not Working?

Mar 1, 2011

I have a Dell Latitude D610 that was given to me and I currently have Ubuntu 10.04 installed. I am trying to get the internal microphone working for gchat.

If I go to System-->Preferences-->Sound-->Hardware it says: Choose a device to configure and Internal Audio, 1 Output/1 Input Analog Stereo Duplex is highlighted.

Settings for the selected device: Analog Stereo Duplex is selected on the dropdown menu.

When I select the Input tab: Input Volume is at 100% the box for Mute is unchecked Connector Analog Microphone/Microphone 1 is selected on the drop down menu for Connector and the device for sound input: Internal Audio Analog Stereo is selected.

How can I configure my microphone to work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dell Studio 15 Laptop Speakers Stopped Working

Jul 21, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my Dell Studio laptop for a few months now with no audio problems. Last night I was listening to music just fine, then put my laptop to sleep and went to bed. Today, I go to play music, and nothing comes out of the speakers. Both headphone/speaker jacks work, but when I unplug the headphones, nothing happens.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Laptop Speakers Not Working: Dell Inspiron 700m

Jan 8, 2011

The only problem I've had so far seems to be a common one but I haven't found a specific solution for a dell inspiron 700m. I have sound through the headphones but not through the laptop internal speakers. I've played with the alsamixer settings endlessly but no success, and I'm 99% sure that it's not an issue with the hardware or speaker wiring. I suspect I need to add an 'options snd-hda-intel model=xxxxx' line to alsa-base but not sure what argument to use.

General :: Get Dual Screens Working On A Dell E6410 Laptop With U10.04 64 Bit?

Jul 12, 2010

I've installed the drivers from nVidia. When I go into the NVIDIA X Server Settings application, in the X Server Display Configuration setcion, and click the "Configure" button, "TwinView" is disabled. Also, clicking "Detect Displays" doesn't pick up my monitor (which is connected through a port replicator - keyboard and mouse in that port replicator work fine).

Has anyone else seen this? Is this just a limitation of the current nvidia linux drivers?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dell Laptop Won't Install W 10.04

Jul 12, 2010

I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and burned the CD. I changed the boot order on my Dell Inspiron 8100 to search for CD first. On startup, I see it flash - ISO LINUX something ............ The light flashes on my CD drive for a minute or so. I see a little icon at bottom of screen with a stick figure of a man and something else for a few seconds, then I see a white cloud flash on the screen that reduces in size and disappears, after another minute or so of the drive light flashing everything stops and still a black screen. Then, I tried hitting escape key a couple of times and I heard a few seconds of jungle music. The drive light flashes again for a while but nothing else happens. It seems like it's almost there, but not making it all the way for some reason.

By the way, if it matters, my Dell hard drive is partitioned to C: and D: I thought it would run a little faster that way, but not really noticable. I have most everything on C: right now. I hope to install side by side as I have a couple of applications I need Windows for, but would like to use Ubuntu for everything else. More questions about that later, on getting it to boot from the CD?

Since posting the above earlier under Dell, I have been able to boot from a borrowed 9.04 disk okay. And, was able to boot another computer with the 10.04 disk that I burned. The disk is apparently good, so why doesn't 10.04 work and 9.04 does?

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting 11.04 With Manual Swap On A Dell Laptop?

May 21, 2011

I am trying to insall 11.04. Here are my current computer specs

Dell Inspiron N4010
Intel Core i5 M460 @ 2.53 Ghz
64- bit Windows 7 Home Premium

I have a single HD with three partitions currently,

1. Primary Boot Partition for Windows - 475 GB (100 GB free)
2. Recovery Drive for Windows - 9.88 GB
3. OEM Partition - 361 MB

Now I shrank my primary volume giving the ubuntu installation drive around 30 GB (enough?). However, I am unable to make a swap partition because dell laptops apparently do not allow more than 4 partitions?I read somewhere that it does not allow more that 4 primary partitions, but we can have more logical drives in an extended partition. I am totally confused about this. How do we do it then? Can a swap partition be a logical drive? Also, I heard (I may be completely wrong) that there are some MBR issues when you install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7.

Fedora Installation :: Get F12 Running On My Dell D600 Laptop?

Nov 21, 2009

i am trying to get F12 running on my Dell D600 laptop and am having some SERIOUS networking issues.

i had F11 running, but the upgrade process was FUBAR'd and doesn't work so i had to do a clean installation. upon finishing that, i now have no network connectivity.

i try connecting an ethernet cable to eth0 (LAN connection), no connection. i try connecting to my wireless network using wlan0, no connection

i turn off network manager, try adding them manually same thing.

how the frick do i get this thing to connect to the world?

Edit: p.s. the only connection that i've been able to get so far is some halfway connection to my wireless, but it puts me on the 10.x.x.x subnet, and my entire internal network is on 192.168.1.x.

Edit: one other thing, every time i make changes and reboot it tells me to log into system-config-network as root and make further changes

Fedora Installation :: Can't Install F15 On Brand New Dell XPS Laptop / Way To Do This?

Sep 8, 2011

I just got my brand new shiny Dell XPS L502X laptop today and planned to do a dual-boot installation between Win 7 and F15. Win 7 went great but I can't even get the 64-bit Live DVD of F15 to load. The splash screen always hangs while the bar loads, but if I push ESC so I can see what's going on in the background, I get a whole lot of different error messages and the last message is "fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed." What I get is nearly identical to what I found in this post. I've already tried the usual kernel options that have always worked for me in the past, such as noapic, noacpi, and nomodeset. However, the Live DVD still won't boot. There's got to be a way to install this. Any ideas?

Ubuntu Installation :: Partitioned Hard Drive Install On Dell Laptop?

Jul 13, 2010

I am getting ready to install Ubuntu 9.04 on my Dell laptop, only because 10.04 won't work. I have the hard drive partitioned as C: and D: . I am keeping Windows on C: for a couple of applications that need it. I still have a few things on the D: drive. Do I need to have it completely clean and formatted? And, will Ubuntu ask where I want it to be installed or will it just take the largest contiguous space available? After the install, does the system automatically ask if I want Windows or Ubuntu or how do I tell it which system to bring up?

Debian Installation :: Using Squeeze 64b On Dell Latitude D830 With Intel I965GM Laptop?

Aug 17, 2010

I'm trying to start using Debian Squeeze 64b on my laptop, which is Dell Latitude D830 with Intel i965GM.

After Debian installation, when system should display some nice background and window which please me to log in, I see my screen gets blank, fuzzy, blank again, ...and after several times finaly all hangs. Surprisingly mouse pointer is displayed nicely and works. I can't use network on Debian becouse of windows authorization program which i can run in wine on KDE. This works on Kubuntu.

What I did already:

I installed KUBUNTU 10.04 LTS and it's doing job well.

I installed Debian Squeeze with options:

- enabled:base system, laptop

- disabled:graphical environment

After instalation I logged in on root account and did:

1. aptitude install xserver-xorg xbase-clients xfonts-base xterm
2. aptitude install kdebase kde-i18n-pl
3. aptitude install kdm
4. reboot
5. problem occurs

@2: Googling everywhere i found several installation guides pointing to instal pure KDE by installing kde-core package, but it seems Squeeze does not have it.

@3: Unfortunately this command did not install nor update anything.

All I want to do is to install pure Debian with xorg and kde core (not full kde package) for later customization.

I tried to:

- generate xorg.conf (X -configure) and place it at /etc/X11/

- use xorg.conf working for other people in web.

- dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

- googling & forum search for my specific problem and for errors found in syslog; with no working solution.

Ubuntu :: Won't Load On Dell Laptop

Nov 4, 2010

I have ubuntu loaded on my Dell as the only operating system. It was working fine. I would just keep it on all the time, so if there was a problem with it booting previously, I wouldn't have known about it. I recently installed long overdue updates, and when I restarted the computer, it wasn't able to boot. I've tried several times, and I always get the same black screen with white text, and a message it gives me. I'll put that message below the dotted line on this post. There was a series of numbers in there, but I'm not posting those just in case it would be a security risk (not sure if it's a code or something).
