I have a Dell Studio-1558 which I've been trying to dual boot. I messed up with the creation of partitions and have lost the ability to boot into Windows 7. Now I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on it through a bootable usb device. I've created an ext4 partition of around 10GB and commenced the installation process.
Since about a few weeks my studio 1558 is not functioning properly. sometime on start up there would just be Black screen, i could hear the whirring sound of fan and processor but nothing on screen. sometimes it owuld start up but in black and white. most of the times it strats up with green screer and i mean a mesh like green net gets displayed over the screen.
im trying to connect my logitech x.530 to my dell studio 1558 and get 5.1 sound. I have 3 jaks and in windows i automaticly could switch between line in adn mic. Which means i could get 5.1 surround over these 3 jacks. Ubunut does not realise that one of the three jacks should be switched to give sound to the center and lfe speaker. Itried all the tips in the forums, but nothing works.
I have dell studio 1558, i7 720, 1.6ghz, 4gb RAM, Win 7. For past 1 yr i'm having this "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" problem. It happens when i'm supposed to watch some videos in Vimeo/Skydrive/and few other sites. No problem when using YouTube.
I have been using the latest video driver and other drivers right throughout for past 2 and half years.
I have a new Dell Studio 1558 with Lucid 64-bit installed and have been struggling with the wireless for quite a while now. Generally when I boot the wireless will connect properly, but at some random point in the future (eg. in 30 mins) it will just disconnect and ask for the password again. It then often has trouble re-connecting, sometimes requiring a reboot.
