Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

Everything worked OK but was unable to set up dual boot to boot into Windows. There was a small partition on the original set up labelled as "System" and I suspect the MBR was there and Grub wasn't looking there for it. As a result I decided to ditch Windows completely.
There was no sound on the internal speakers though external ones worked OK. That was resolved by installing new drivers from the manufacturer's website (Realtec)
The touchpad mouse is very sensitive which causes problems when typing.
