I have a one year old Fujitsu lifebook NH532 laptop running Windows 8. Recently I updated the driver for the Nvidia graphics card from version 331.82 to 335.23 WHQL and on installation the laptop screen turned black. When I turned on the computer, the screen continues to be very dark (with no brightness) even at BIOS boot time.
I downloaded the 32 bit iso, checked MD5sum, and put it onto a USB pen drive using unetbootin as I usually do. It booted up fine on my Lenovo Thinkcenter desktop. However, it did not detect my wireless NIC, bcm43. I played around with the live system and all was working fine. Then I manualy installed the wireless driver and connected to the internet via my home network.
All of a sudden my second nic disappeared. Only thing I did was put the motherboard in a new case. I tried to keep the cards in order in the PCI slots, but may not have. Only thing I can think of is INT went missing on bootup PCI bus scan and reconfig.
The first nic is marvel and is on the motherboard and still working, second nic is intel etherexpress (e100).
I tried to solve everything on my own and google, etc. But now this moment can't be put off any further, and I must place this burden on your time.The original problem: I have a Dell latitude E6430 laptop connected via a docking station to an external monitor, also Dell. I want to use both screens with a desktop or two on each.
I am having MAJOR problems trying to network-share a printer I have connected to my Ubuntu machine (the rest of the machines on the network are all various versions of Windows). I've been tangling with SAMBA and made some progress: when trying to "Add Printers" from the Windows machines, they can actually see it when doing a network search.
I just installed xubuntu (8.04) onto an old Sony vaio laptop and am a complete Linux newbie. After playing around, it seems to be running well, except it is not detecting my wired Ethernet connection correctly.
