Hello, I have a problem with Ubuntu. I can boot with acpi=off but no WiFi. Acpi=ht boots but as soon as it connects to WiFi it restarts. Any ideas? I've tried the basic boot options with no luck.

No one? I really want to use Ubuntu. Someone must be able to help me.

Windows works fine, I have to change the processor driver to "Intel proccessor driver" for it to work, otherwise I get the black screens and restarts on windows.

Specs
Intel processor dual core 2.53ghz p8700
ATI mobility radeon 512mb 4650
4.0gb ram
Khlb2 motherboard - compal

How can I troubleshoot this?

Hi, acpi=off does turn off the wifi on some computers so you will probably need to find another parameter that you can boot with.

Copy and paste this command in the terminal (ctrl+alt+t) please:

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 http://dl.dropbox.com/u/57264241/netscript.sh && chmod +x netscript.sh && ./netscript.sh
It will download a script and create a text file in your home folder with wireless information so we can see the condition of your wireless at this time and the Mac address, WPA key and WEP key are removed for your security, then reply back and attach the netinfo.txt file.
Thanks

Hi, that is very strange output, are you still booting with acpi=off? if so try with nomodeset.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132
acpi=off is the last option you want to try because it will most likely disable your fans too.
Thanks

ok sorry...

http://www.2shared.com/document/BvThpfrt/netinfo.html

I just had enough time to do that before it black screened and restarted....

Bowater;

I am looking....
1. Are you on a router ... (gateway addressing set for what is a router address)?
2. IF you do not have a router on your LAN where did you get the DNS (is your router providing this service[I would find this unusual in a small environment ]? However; I would not expect the DNS sloppyation to drop the connection, just not able to find any web sites.
Just to try and shorten a long process ... can you bring up your wireless access from the command line ?.... if so can you ping any outside servers ?
Let me look over the links you provided and see if I can get an idea as to what is going on...

Talk to you later.

Bowater;

I am confused as to the originating nature of your present problem.
Is the present situation as a result of attempting to install the Share2 protocol ?

If so are you certain you downloaded for ubuntu ? As I found this:http://www.2shared.com/file/V9bsXqim/filestorrentwordpresscomubuntu.html

please advise us

kindest regards <===BDQ

Bowater
August 14th, 2012, 09:21 PM
Yes am using a router, im in norway so im using the default dns.

All ive done is install ubuntu, that i downloaded from the ubuntu website.

the only boot command i can use where the laptop stays on is acpi=off, so its difficult to do anything with with the command nomodeset. It blackscreens then reboots. What other commands are there?

Wild Man
August 14th, 2012, 10:50 PM
Hi, you need to deal with the acpi issue first then your wireless and many other things should work, you can unplug your wired connection and see if your wireless will come on then but I doubt it.

You will probably have to start a new thread for just the acpi issue but you can post the output of:

dmesg | grep -i acpi
dmesg | grep -i error
dmesg | grep -i warn
here by clicking on new reply and click # then paste the information between the brackets.

Hi, you have a bio's bug, can you update your bio's? if not you might be able to fix the issue by upgrading the kernel but for those things you need to start a new thread for just one of them issues, then we can work on your wireless after you get that resolved.
Thanks

ok, cool. I thought it must be the bios and i have updated it to the latest version a while ago. That's why changing the processor driver worked in windows, it didn't make any sense why that would work.

So what should i do now? try and update it again? I've done this more than once, updating the bios using a usb key (the only way i can update it).

The bios files are on the www.compal.com website,

http://ftp.compal.com/Download/NB/KHLBX/BIOS/HLB0107.zip

but like i said, i have that one installed and have done so many times.

I used this guide to make the key bootable

Hi, if there is not an update for the bio's besides the one you have installed then I would try to upgrade the kernel and see if that helps but start a new thread on upgrading the kernel please.
Thanks

No one? I really want to use Ubuntu. Someone must be able to help me.

Windows works fine, I have to change the processor driver to "Intel proccessor driver" for it to work, otherwise I get the black screens and restarts on windows.

Specs
Intel processor dual core 2.53ghz p8700
ATI mobility radeon 512mb 4650
4.0gb ram
Khlb2 motherboard - compal

How can I troubleshoot this?

We have exactly the same problem in both Windows and Linux but I'm using Fedora though. I have the same processor as well. I couldn't fix the Windows. I have to disable the processors in device manager to avoid the random restarts or run in safe mode. How did you fix yours? What's the "Intel processor driver" you used? My current driver is:

Provider: Microsoft
Date: 21/6/2006
Version: 6.0.6001.18000
Signer: microsoft windows

In Fedora, when I set acpi=off, there are no restarts but no wifi too! My system is updated with the latest kernel.

Please help and update us how did you fix yours. Thanks.
