I have been trying to upgrade the BIOS for my HP Envy laptop last weeks and I am not advancing. The task and concepts are too difficult for me and I have a hard time understanding articles related to this. I tried installing Freedos with VirtualBox, but then I read that for the bios upgrade it was a wrong approach to start with.
I have an Asus S400CA laptop and today, I upgraded the BIOS firmware from version 203 to 209 using the Asus Windows flash utility. Flashing was successful and even the verification was OK. So, I restarted the system and ... just a black screen shows up.
So far any time i call and ask wind customer service about when a software upgrade is due, i think they must hire idiots because i get the same response everytime ' so you want to upgrade your phone, me: no no no when is my s3 getting a new software upgrade? software you know. them can i put you oh hold and after 10 minutes were sorry we dont have that information.
MSI Wind U100+ with Ralink RT2700E on 12.04 32bit.
The problem was also present in 10.04 - but I was able to fix it by editing /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-rt2800.conf and adding
# This is to fix wifi on the MSI Wind with the Ralink RT2700E.
Hello,I'm using Crunchbang on my laptop and pc for some time now and it works great!Yesterday I installed it on my girlfriends netbook, a MSI Wind U100. Until yesterday she was using Ubuntu (LTS).I have 2 problems, the first one is that wifi isn't working. The internal wifi card was also not working in Ubuntu, but I fixed it with an USB wifi receiver.
My cousin got a laptop from the government of my state, the laptop is provided from HP and its model no. is Pavilion G4 1303AU. And its set on dual boot with ubuntu and windows 7. By doing this I'm not breaking any law or rules of my government in case if anyone think so.
Everything is great but there is a logo at the startup of the bios of government CM which I don't like.
