http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey everyone. I'm completely new to ubuntu and trying to get an old Thinkpad 600x to work. I have a few problems however. First, the battery is completely dead and when I try to install ubuntu, it asks me to unplug the laptop and restart. Obviously, this causes a problem. I also tried installing xubuntu 9.10, but when I first tried to shutdown, the menus disappeared and I had to shut off with the power button. Then, when I unplugged the laptop and restarted it, it would progress to the login screen, then show only a blank window with a mouse pointer. I was able to open the install CD if (Hardware)
