My current Toshiba laptop is getting rather long in the tooth, but I've decided to 'tough it out' until Kaveri finally hits the laptop (summer maybe?).
Anyways, my Toshiba laptop has dedicated/Toshiba graphics drivers, and Toshiba sucks at updating their drivers (essentially maybe one or two when the laptop is released, then they stop providing updates).
My daughter's 64 bit Toshiba Satellite L655 suffered from the common Toshiba laptop problem of Invisible battery under Fedora 16.
dmesg | grep batt
would report Battery absent. This appears to be common with Toshiba laptops under Fedora, Ubuntu, Centos, Debian, and BackTrack Linux. Online research pointed to custom kernels, which sound like a headache; and a simpler way using Grub2.
I have a new Toshiba laptop and Linux would not load. I called Toshiba and the tech said that the hardware of Toshiba prevents you from nuking Windows 8 and loading possibly anything else but specifically Linux. Has anyone else encountered this problem and what can be done.
I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop and I am buying another one, newer laptop and I have about 200GBs of stuff like games/apps on my hard drive. I could upload it online or do it with a USB drive but that will take a LONG time. Is it possible to transfer all data (possibly the OS too) on a different hard drive? Or just switch the hard drive of one laptop and stick it in another one?
I am trying desperately to make Ubuntu work on my laptop. I want to use windows as little as possible. The fan on my Toshiba laptop never comes on. Once I get into processor heavy stuff my laptop overheats and shuts itself off. I have look at a bunch of old forums but all the links are broken or not detailed enough. i have tryed other forums and it still will not come on.
