  1. Re: Share your older computer revival success stories here!

    Could be any old computer including P4's...was thinking of ones from old computer stores or ones gotten from friends, trash piles, etc..(I didn't want to limit anything)
  2. Share your older computer revival success stories here!

    I thought it would be an interesting idea to see what kinds of old computers that we all had would be able to run Linux. Mine is a HP DV 4000 from 2005.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Issue installing Ubuntu 14.04 on my old laptop

    I have a similar speced laptop (Intel pentium M, 992 MB) and was thinking could Xubuntu be a suitable replacement if Ubuntu fails for this indiviual?

    Re: Trusty Tahr is simply beautiful.

    I spent all day yesterday installing Trusty Tahr. It is absolutely beautiful. The only reason why I need to dual boot at this point is for MS Office since I do not fully trust Libreoffice for my...

    Welcome back!

    I do the same thing sometimes but never actually leave.
  11. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Bucky,

    Thanks for that-I had wondered where they went. Put 14.04 on the older machine so no issues there.
  12. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    I just upgraded to Trusty Tahr as well.

    Re: Have you tried 14.04 yet?

    I plan to upgrade because I have another partition running Elementary OS.
  14. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    The partitions are 42 GB (Windows XP), 32 GB (Elementary OS) and 12 GB for Xubuntu 12.04. The second thing you mentioned is like talking to me in another language..How would I do that?
  15. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    I was able to triple boot Xubuntu 12.04, Elementary OS and Windows XP. All on a 100 GB Hard drive.
  16. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Very cool :)

    Going to replace the power supply at the beginning of the month. Cheap fix on Amazon and i'm pretty sure since I heard it "shock", that is the problem culprit.
  17. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Bucky Ball,

    Keep in mind this is a travel laptop-I have a much more powerful one I bought last year (Toshiba L875) with 4 gigs ram, 640 GB hard drive. I think the issue with this one is the power...
  18. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Bucky, agreed. It may not be the PSU, just thinking out loud. This could be as easy as a power supply going bad. Are there any dignostics I could run to see what could be the issue?
  19. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    This morning I booted it up and with a good certainty I'm sure it's the PSU going bad. My question is what is the average life of a PSU? Keep in mind this machine (as far as I can tell with research...
  20. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Ive narrowed it down to the fan being dirty (no screwdrivers to check the fan's case) but did remove the battery or the power supply is going bad. It's not that much of an expensive fix, less then...
  21. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    I'm rather enjoying Elementary OS. I installed Xubuntu 12.04 but can't get it booted more then a few minutes before it shuts down. I'm thinking the fan is severely dirty and needs a clean out but I...

  24. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    I booted up elementary OS and it's running like a dream. What do you all think about it in terms of a distro?
  25. Re: Trying to decide between Xubuntu 12.04 or Elementary OS for old laptop.

    Bucky, absolutely.
