    Hello LinuxQuestions, Last night, I installed ReactOS on my Dell Inspiron 1200 laptop, and now the loading bar doesn't get past about 7/8 of the way through.

  • Issue#8271: Linux - Migration To SSD On DELL Inspiron 5520 Ubuntu 14.04.3 / Windows 10 Dual Boot

    Hello, I want to migrate from a 1TB HDD on my Inspiron 5520 to a 1TB SSD. I normally use a Clonezilla distro, which has been optimized for Ubuntu and has USB 3.0 support. Can I just hang the new SSD on a SATAWIRE cable and use Clonezilla in the normal way, or is there something else I will need to do? My current Clonezilla distro is "clonezilla-live-2.4.2-10-amd64.iso." Thanks, Hannibal

  • Issue#220875: Linux - Dell Latitude D610 DVD issue Mint 17.3

    Hello gang. I have this Dell laptop with Mint 17.3 Rosa on it It works fine But I am always wanting to tinker. I had Ubuntu on a Sony laptop and I liked it until that laptop died I was thinking about putting it on this Dell, but the DVD does not seem to work properly. I know the DVD is fine as it is what I used to install Ubuntu on the now dead machine When I put the DVD in, the icon for a music DVD pops up ( I do have the boot order set correctly as I installed Mint from a DVD) When I try booting to the DVD, it does not recognize it and goes right past it and boots from the HD Any DVD (not music) I put in it thinks its a music DVD and I cannot open it So apparenty there is something wrong with the DVD driver? Any insight? I dont really have to get this to work, all I use this for is for the internet and maybe some of the Libra office and Gimp programs and print from it and all that works just fine Just curious what could be wrong thanks

  • Issue#292455: Linux Mint Installed On Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop

    Hi, All, Recently a friend asked me to look at her laptop, a dell Inspiron E1505. It has a 80GB hard drive, approx. 1 gHz processor, and 1GB RAM with windows XP installed. The XP was trashed. Yesterday she told me to just throw the lappy away, so I thought, what the heck. I install Mint 17.3 XFCE edition on it. And so far, it seems to be working very nicely! Just thought y'all might be interested. Thanks, Steve

  • Issue#505906: AMD drivers issue with Dell Inspiron

    Hi,I have a Dell Inspiron 5545 with dual graphics, AMD R6 and R7 M265DX. I have Windows 10 64bit and the drivers from AMD would not work well so all this time I had the drivers Windows update provided, which were better, not the quality of the drivers of when I had Windows 7 but better than the drivers the AMD support site provided. On 5 of April I received a notification in my computer from AMD update telling me than new drivers went out (those of 4 April) and I installed them. Those were the best drivers ever, everything ran super smooth and the games played excellent. After that I had to format my laptop for irrelevant reasons and after formatting I downloaded the latest 4 of April drivers from the AMD website. Then this strange issue occured; Everytime i pressed the power button to power up my pc, it shut down at the boot screen. The second time I pressed the power up, it would boot normally, with the exception that the boot time would be really longer. I figured out that it could

  • Issue#694978: Linux - Dell Inspiron 17 5000 compatibility

    I am considering buying a Dell Inspiron 17 5000 laptop with FHD screen. I prefer the i7 version, but it comes with an AMD Radeon R5 M355 GPU. I understand support is limited. Can I run exclusively on the integrated Intel GPU? Will it provide Full HD? (1920 x 1080). The resolution is prime importance. Graphic performance (speed) is not relevant. The i5 version comes with only the Intel GPU. I assume that one is supported anyway. Any more compatibility issues? Wireless? Touchpad? Suspend? I plan to run Debian on the laptop. Testing/Unstable might be acceptable if I have to. jlinkels
