    ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    From Chris:
    Forgive this message and for not posting it on a forum but it is
    specific to ACER Timeline series laptop.

    I have a problem installing the AMD64 Karmic on this (Acer Timeline x 1830TZ) system.
    After creating a USB installation I get to the
    installation menu, tab the install on this PC option and then as it's
    beginning to enter the installation the screen goes blank. The Ubuntu
    sounds chims after a few minutes, then nothing.

    I've tried many of the options in the boot menu, but none seem to work
    and after 3 days navigating forums, help menus and trying to reinstall,
    i'm at a loose end. (The 386 Karmic version works but none of the
    networking drivers are installed, and i can't retrieve them as I can't
    get on the net (through wireless or ethernet) - manual downloads aren't
    working either because a heap of the dependancies (which aren't
    installed) aren't met.)

    Has anyone else had this problem or know a fix?

    IF anyone could help with specifics (keep in mind i'm fairly new to
    Ubuntu) I would really really appreciate it!

    Thanks, Chris.

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    Hi Chris!

    Always post your problems in the forum, its useless to
    discuss it in private e-mails.

    Did I understand your mail correct, the Ubuntu Version from last year will boot from the stick, where as the ten point ten version
    leaves you with a blank screen?

    Ubuntu / Linux does a lot of logging, especially during the boot up. You should try to reach the file /var/log/messages. Did you try Ctrl+Alt+F1 to
    get a console? If you are in a console you get some messages with Ctrl+F8, with Ctrl+F1 you go back to the console and Ctrl+F7 is your graph.
    login. Maybe your X-Server has a problem. It has its own log file, can't remember its location or name.

    So long,
    jc

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    JC: Thanks for posting this on the forum

    ... and to all those that gave some email suggestions thank you muchly!

    ... However, the problem still persists. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 using a USB drive.

    My Laptop Acer Inspire Timeline X 1830TZ. I don't have a CD drive but will try and borrow an external one to boot from as this problem is really annoying. I used to have a ASUS EEE which recently broke at Everst Base Camp, hence the new one. Ubuntu pretty much worked flawlessly on that machine, shame ASUS wouldn't sponsor me a new one!

    I've tried a bunch of different boot commands, most of them i only have a limited knowledge of, including

    acpi_backlight=vendor
    acpi_backlight=video
    acpi_osi=Linux
    acpi=off noapic nolapic

    Then this: intel_idle.max_cstate=0 which i must confess have no idea what it does but gave it a try anyway after i found it on a post somewhere. I feel a little like a blind peson stumbling in the dark.

    The 10.04 386 version seemed to install ok, but as per the previous problem is a pain in the **** to get working on my machine. That and i would like a 64 bit machine to recognise the 4G of ram.

    Currently trying to download the 10.10 beta from slow internet cafes in Kathmandu and see if that works.

    If anyone else has any ideas/experience I'd appreciate the help.

    Thanks in advance, Chris

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    ... So a week later I downloaded the new Maverick 10.10 AMD64 installed it and still having problems. It's taken a week now and i've gotten nowhere.

    I can run a live shell off the USB and everything seems fine. I install it then get kicked out to a prompt with a login, then after a while the screen goes blank. If i try and start the GUI the screen goes blank.

    The xorg.0.log system file off the USB live shell says something like this:

    Perhaps there's something in the boot parameters or systems files I could change?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Lightbulb Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    I have been running Ubuntu on my Acer 3810TZ - which I believe is substantially similar in spec to the 1830TZ apart from screen size - since I got it nearly a year ago, and have never had any significant problems. I do use the 32-bit version though; with the PAE kernel it is able to make use of all 4GB of installled RAM, so I really don't see the point of installing a 64-bit version. In your place I'd have a go with the 32-bit version.

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    Thanks for the tip, but the problem still persists in the x386 version.

    Here's an update on the problem so far:

    I managed to get a semi working system together by changing the video driver to 'VESA' instead of 'intel' in the Xorg.conf file. As suggested here: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-379651.html

    Although the video is still buggy, flashing an dropping out every now and then, at least that at least gave me a GUI desktop to work with!

    I also edited the /etc/default/grub and add 'nomodeset' to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX, then run sudo update-grub as suggested here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLynx/ReleaseNotes. I'm not really sure that did anything, but i now have a low res version that i can use in the meantime.

    On boot it still throws the system out to a login prompt and then requires the 'startx' command to get the GUI up. Again i have no idea why this is.

    Ideas or suggestions are most welcome.

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    I should have also noted that the live version 10.10 in both x386 and AMD64 seems to work fine. I installed the latest release and now the ethernet works but the wireless and audio don't (I realise there are fixes mentioned in the forum for the latter 2 problems).

    On reboot, the same things happens: Get kicked out to login prompt, use startx to open GUI then a blank screen.

    Exactly the same situation for my 1830TZ (CPU U5400). I have tried amd64, i386 and netbook versions, and I got always the same result: black screen......

    Re: ACER timeline 1830TZ boot issue

    @hemiscy

    Good to know that it's not just me!

    I got around the blank screen issue by changing the driver to 'VESA' instead of "Intel". (You'll need to edit the Xorg.conf file to do this - search ubuntu forums and you'll find info on what exactly to modify) It's still buggy (screen blanks out every now and then for a few seconds) but at least you get a GUI to work with. None of the compiz effects work tho. Worried that other graphics intensive programs for edit video etc will suffer

    The sound is still an issue (i.e. doesn't work). Tried just about every combination of sound devices, but nothing. Really regretting the purchase of this machine. I'll try flashing the bios to version 1.11, if that doesn't work i'm going back to Win7. Maybe the next update of the Ubuntu Kernal will fix some of the bugs? Can only wait and hope.... (sigh).

    Please post here if you find a workable solution to the sound and video problems. Cheers, Chris.
