http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everyone, I fixed my super old laptop with a new power jack an thought about how to get the most out of this ancient bit of equipment. Obviously my first thought was linux! However, ubuntu 12.04 32-bit will just not run on this laptop. Windows 7 runs without a problem so I presumed ubuntu was sure to work! Sony vaio VGN-FS415M Intel pentium M 1.73GHz 2GB RAM Nvidia Geforce Go 6400 It's completely unusable, even after a proper install (not live CD). None of the buttons work on the OS, when you hover over the left navbar, the flyouts appear and stay there. Opening menu with windows key op (Hardware)
