Debian Installation :: How To Control Cooling Fan On Dell Vostro 1520

Feb 22, 2015

I have a Dell Vostro 1520 laptop and dual boot Windows 7 and Debian 7.8 64-bit. Windows 7 does use a lot of resources and the cooling fan kicks in almost all the time and it's a bit noisy. So I installed Debian which makes a big difference as it uses less resources so the fan is on less often.I just installed LXDE desktop to try to reduce this even further and I must say it is much better but fan still comes on even when laptop is quite cool so not sure why fan is kicking in so early.

Any best software to control when the fan comes on. If there are any good tools that are easy to install for someone who is quite new to linux? URL...

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get Dell Vostro 1520 WLAN To Work

Mar 31, 2010

I just installed 9.10 on a brand new Dell Vostro 1520. The WLAN card does NOT work out of the box.

Here is what you have to do.
After install and rebooting insert the live CD
Go to software sources (system > software sources)and check the "officially supported restricted copyright" box
You are then asked to update the available software list, do so.
You will receive an error message since you are not (yet) connected to the internet and all the other repositories are not available.

Now you should be notified that restricted drivers are available, if not you can go to system > hardware. Anyway, now you should be able to activate the Broadcom STA driver. After rebooting you can connect to available wireless networks.

Alternative (in case you are not asked, which happened to me on another Vostro system) system>administration>syaptic package manager
Search for broadcom
Mark b43-fwcutter and bcmwl-kernel-sources for installation
Reboot (who said there is no rebooting required in linux)
The adapter should be up and running ...

Ubuntu Networking :: Wifi Not Working For BCM4312 10.10 Maverick Vostro 1520?

Oct 12, 2010

1 ) Machine Brand and Model (PC/Laptop):Dell Vostro 1520 (Laptop)

2 ) Wireless Brand, Model and Wireless Chipset:

Code:

alexander@alexander-V1520:~$ lspci -nn | grep 'Broadcom'
0e:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01)

3 ) Check interface:

Code:

alexander@alexander-V1520:~$ ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:24:e8:c3:d5:2e
inet addr:192.168.1.3 Bcast:192.168.1.255 Mask:255.255.255.0
inet6 addr: fe80::224:e8ff:fec3:d52e/64 Scope:Link

[code]....

In System-->Administration-->Additional Drivers I've enabled the 'Broadcom STA wireless driver' and its noted as 'This driver is activated and currently in use.' Changes I made

- I've activated the Nvidia driver.
- I've installed Boxee (media center)
- I'm using CPU frequency scalers for both my cores.
- I've updated my system and am using maverick-security, -updates and -proposed.
- I've installed b43-fwcutter
- I've installed firmware-b43-lpphy-installer

Other than those adjustments the system is completely fresh. When I suspend or hibernate and activate my laptop again it only shows a backlight-lit black screen and does not continue restoring. Other than the occasional flash my cpu 'business' indicator led does nothing. BUT The wireless led is now on. I've tried the Broadcom B43 driver as you could've guessed from the changes I made, no result. I had to use the 'lpphy' installer(for BCM4312 (with Low-Power aka LP-PHY)), the 'legacy' and normal version both gave an error upon executing the post installation script.

Debian Configuration :: Display Size Wrongly Detected After Installing NVIDIA Driver

May 17, 2010

Using squeeze with a GeForce4 MX 440 video card (NVIDIA) I have a monitor (4/3 aspect ratio, 1024x768 usually), and a TV connected via S-video After installing the NVIDIA driver using the NVIDIA binaries I managed to have a cloned twin screen configuration working.

However, the monitor is (wrongly) detected as having size 1824x768 (aspect ratio is widescreen) Using system monitor, I can set the correct size, but only for one session; besides, the login screen too is messed up the xorg.conf file seems right: proper resolution modes are set; xorg.0.log too

Debian Hardware :: Installing Newer Kernel For AR9485 Driver Breaks Display

Apr 8, 2014

I'm trying to install Atheros AR9485 wireless card driver on debian, and I had no luck.

I followed this [URL] .... to install backports kernel version. The wireless card worked, however, intel display driver displayed the color in the wrong way.

Red pixels are green, and green are yellow. It was displayed like when someone try to connect a PAL system to a TV that supports only NTSC.

This is my lspci output:

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 09)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
00:03.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation Device 0a0c (rev 09)
00:14.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP USB xHCI HC (rev 04)
00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation Lynx Point-LP HECI #0 (rev 04)

[Code] ....

Is there is a way to compile only AR9485 module from the kernel?

Add the following

Code: Select alli915.i915_enable_fbc=0 to your GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT= in /etc/default/grub so you would have something like that

Code: Select allGRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=" i915.i915_enable_fbc=0 nomodeset quiet splash"

Debian :: Dell Vostro 1710 - Fsck Failed During Boot

Jul 18, 2015

I have Debian Wheezy on my Dell Vostro 1710.

There is a fsck scan happening every 35 mounts on my laptop (i.e. when I boot)

It was fine until a few weeks ago when it started to fail.

Here is the error message :

What should I do to fix that ? I use my laptop to go on the Internet and I don't remember modifying/installing anything that could make this happen.

I found the answer : [URL] ....

I just had to type the root password and run fsck manually as follows : fsck /dev/sda7.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4. Failed To Run On Dell Inspiron 1520

May 2, 2011

I'm using OpenSUSE since vesrion 10.x and I never have problems to install latest version of OpenSUSE. Last week end I decided to upgrade my Laptop (Dell Inspiron 1520) from version 11.3 to version 11.4. I performed clean install (I have separate home partition so I have no problems with my info) but when setup goes to last step "Prepare first time automatic configuration" (top progress bar shows 3% and bottom progress bar shows 10%) my laptop hangs and Capslock Led and the led next to it start blinking together. I tried 3 times and every time the same thing happened. After that I installed 11.3 again (without problems) and then I tried to run upgrade to 11.4 from 11.4 DVD. Upgrade finished successfully but when openSUSE tries to start my laptop hangs in the same way as before . So I decided to go back to 11.3 and I did it without problems even I've upgraded KDE to 4.6 successfully.

Fedora :: Installation Of ATI Driver Messed Up X Display?

Oct 1, 2009

I'm running F11 with an ATI HD3850 graphics card. I donloaded latest version of the ATI driver and installed it (without paying to much attention to versions and pre-reqs). This caused my display to be unusable in Gnome, nothing can be made out of it.

Was hoping to be able to repair this if I atleast had a bash prompt, but when I press ctrl-alt-F6 (or any F-button) my computer restarts. how I could fix this without reinstalling?

Fedora :: Does Default Display Driver Shipped With F12 Do This Out Of Box?

Jul 15, 2010

In WinXP, with the nvidia drivers, there's fan control.By default, out of the box, my NVIDIA 8800 GTX card's fan blows at full speed (noisy). So when I'm booting up and I'm in the BIOS.. it's at full speed and loud. Once Windows loads up (and the drivers kick in), the fan goes almost completely silent. It stays that way until I load up something 3D intensive.. basically it runs the fan as needed.Does the default display driver shipped with Fedora 12 do this out of the box?What about the nouveau driver?How can I see the nvidia fans' speed while using the default display driver?

Ubuntu :: No Display After Driver Uninstall - ATI Radeon

Sep 24, 2010

The last few weeks I have been dual monitoring from my lcd monitor to my hdtv. LCD was connected via vga and my tv via hdmi. To my knowledge, my pc has two graphic cards, both ATI Radeons. One I believe is on the mother board, ATI Radeon 4200HD series, and the other is in a PCI slot ATI Radeon 5600HD series. I think that when I had it dual monitored the tv was connected via 4200HD and LCD via 5600HD (could be wrong).

What I Did: Everything was working fine (i was mainly just using the HDTV as my only monitor and main monitor). As you can guess I was gaming on the hdtv, but I was not satisfied with the slight lag I felt. So I looked at forums to see what I could do and they mostly said 1) change settings on tv to game mode, 2) turn off vsync on your graphics card. So I did #1, but when I tried to do #2 I could not open my graphics cards "menu" aka CCC aka Catalyst Command Center.

So I read up on why this might happen and they said I should uninstall drivers and reinstall the drivers, so I did this as well (with most current drivers from the AMD site, version 10.9) and still I could not get into the CCC. As I was reading more forums, they were saying the 10.8 version mainly has this problem. So what I did was I downloaded 10.7 (did not install yet) and uninstalled the new 10.9. When I went to reboot the cpu after the uninstall of 10.9 there was no display on my HDTV.

I figured I just need to go back to my LCD which was still hooked up to my cpu. No display there as well. I tried dvi and vga hook ups from the monitor to both graphic cards but nothing worked to get me a display. I also tried my girlfriends monitor, which only has vga, to both graphics card and still nothing worked. So at this point I have NO display. After about an hour of trying different combinations of cords, monitors, plugs, tv's etc.,

I RANDOMLY somehow got a display with my girlfriends monitor vga to the 5600 card (I think). I had to hold the vga cord a certain way on attached to the monitor in order for the display to work. So since I had a display, I quickly installed 10.7. After installation, it did not prompt me to reboot (which I thought was weird) so I just went to properties and tried to change the resolution to the max 1600x something, to see how it looks. The screen went blank and the display never reappeared. Now I basically have NO DISPLAY again.

Ubuntu :: Getting NVIDIA Driver To Display Correctly

Mar 31, 2011

I have a problem with getting the picture to display properly on my HDTV. Using the regular driver (whichever that is) the picture displays flawlessly, but when I'm using the NVIDIA driver it displays really weird. URL...As you can see the top and the right of the picture is missing, and there is a large black bar to the left of it.Since it only does this with the NVIDIA driver I guess the driver is at fault here. The graphics card is a 8400GS and I'm running Xubuntu 10.10. The HDTV has a native resolution of 1366x768, and I've connected to it using HDMI.

I have tried messing around with overscan compensation in nvidia-settings, but it didn't help much.What can I do to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Display Driver Warning When Upgrading To 10.04 LTS?

Oct 16, 2010

planning to upgrade to the next LTS version i.e. 10.04. Have already applied all the updates and got the system up-to-date prior to upgrading. But when the upgrade starts I get the following message: Upgrading may reduce desktop effects and performance in games and other graphically intensive programs.This computer is currently using the AMD 'fglrx' graphics driver. No version of this driver is available that works with your hardware in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Do you want to continue ?Obviously, I clicked on NO and got out.What gives ? How come an upgrade is supposed to DEGRADE performance ? What kind of upgrade is that ? Also what is the implication for me ? Will I have to happy with 8.04 forever ?The machine in question is a Toshiba Satellite A100. I use GIMP quite a bit on it, so problems with graphics intensive applications is kind of worrying.What am I supposed to do ?? Upgrade anyway or stick with 8.04 ?

Fedora :: Back To Nouveau Driver - Display On Projector?

Nov 12, 2010

Fedora 13, x86_64, up to date. Trying to get nVidia Quadro NVS 140M to display on a projector the same as it does on the laptop screen, which is 1680 x 1050. I failed to do so with the nVidia driver (latest version), so I want to go back to the nouveau driver and try with xrandr. I have always used the nouveau driver with Fedora without an issue, but in my former life in Ubuntu I sometimes switched back and forth between the "nv" driver and the nVidia driver.

Doing so was trivially easy - just edit xorg.conf replacing "nv" with "nvidia" or vice-versa, then restart X. However, after installing the nVidia driver via Yumex and using the nVidia config utility, I find that now I have an xorg.conf file that is loaded with stuff I don't understand, except that at the top it says it was created by nVidia, and there are two places where it says the driver is "nvidia." I have searched and all I can find is instructions for installing the nVidia driver.

Apparently that is meant to be a one-way ticket, because I can't find any instructions for how to return to the nouveau driver. Except stuff that is over a year old, and complaints from users whose systems failed to start X. What would happen if I just replace "nvidia" with "nouveau" in the xorg.conf file and restart X? I know if it won't start X I can boot to rescue mode and re-edit xorg.conf, but I'd rather ask first and do it the right way than have to repair a broken system.

OpenSUSE Install :: No More Display After Nvidia Driver Update?

Aug 9, 2011

This morning, I authorized an update as almost every day. I saw that the nvidia driver was on the list but in recent years, I no longer fear these driver updates since everything usually works well...

Except that this time, no! I turn on my pc this afternoon and more 3d effects. I run "Nvidia X Server Settings" which tells me I do not use the nvidia driver and must run as root the command "nvidia-xconfig," what I do. I restart X and no display at all, only the prompt in text mode!
