    With 10.04 my Toshiba l455 is perfect, except for fan control and function keys. Otherwise, I love it.
    Thanks for making this thread.

    Gateway ML6732 with 10.04 64bit runs pretty much perfectly, didn't notice anything wrong at all (except for the weak integrated intel graphics).

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: Lucid 10.04
    2)Laptop Maker: HP
    3)Laptop Model: Pavilion DV6-2153ee

    Installs smoothly. Needs wired internet at first to get the Nvidia and Wifi drivers installed via the Hardware Drivers tool.

    Not working:
    The fingerprint reader is a mystery.
    Sound is touch and go and plugging headphones in doesn't mute main speakers.
    I converted my whole office to Ubuntu.... and everyone loves me for it!

    i am a novice, also run ubuntu on an HP Pavilion dv6.
    under preferences it shows 'monitor unknown' and only offers 800x600 resolution.
    the screen allows 1366x768. i tried various xrandr commands, but cannot figure out how to get the better resolution to picked up by ubuntu.
    please help
