I just installed Ubuntu 13.04 onto my Dell inspiron 1545. I've tried almost everything on askubuntu with no luck. My wifi network is not being detected at all and I cannot manually add it. Please help!
Dear Members :I installed Centos 5.4 64-bit from ISO location on VMware Workstation running on XP SP3, in my Dell Inspiron 1545 several times. Now I want to install directly on one part... [by atanu_banerjee]
Hey all, I'm new here :P
I've got two computers with a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04:
- Acer Aspire One D270 netbook, Intel Atom processor, 2 gb ram
- Dell Inspiron 1545 notebook, Intel Core 2 duo processor, 3 gb ram
And I've got the EXACT same issues on both:
- every minute or so, the screen freezes for 3 or 4 seconds. I'm not able to do anything, and everything on the screen stays still.
I used the following post, http://nickfarmer.me/chromium-on-the...inspiron-1545/ , to get Chromium OS to work on my Dell laptop but it's an old build. I'd like to use the Chromium Vanilla builds that are a lot newer but know I will run into driver issues (I've tried). I have those driver problems resolved in Ubuntu and was wondering what I could do in Chromium OS.
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on my new Dell Inspiron 3137. Initially when I inserted the wifi data card (its a Tata Photon Max Wifi Data card), it connected as wired connection and I could access the internet. But wifi was not working - not even shown in the list. So after much research finally found that the wireless card is Atheros and that drivers are missing ..
I just bought a Dell Inspiron 1545, Model No. PP41L at a pawn shop. It came with Windows 7 and lots of crapware. I downloaded the 64-bit version of the Kubuntu 13.10 iso file. I've tried two ways to install Kubuntu without success:
1. From the iso file on a thumb drive
Yeah, so my WiFi will randomly cut out every 10-45 minutes. I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and have updated my drivers with sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source. The issue is specifically with Ubuntu on this computer. The internet works just fine with other devices and computers in the house, and with Windows 7 on this computer.
