    Toshiba don't play nice with Linux but it can be done. You might get some clues here:

    Mine is a different model but you might get some ideas. Good luck.

    And the most stable. I'd stick with it.

    as an aside not related to this model, I have L675D that would not install 10.19 under any circumstances but did allow 10.04. I also wanted SUSE 11.3 and only way I discovered install would work was aspc=off
    Had I know Toshiba's Linux limitations I would have stuck with HP
    Cheers

    I have been able to install Ubuntu on my Toasiba satellite L650D*

    Ubuntu 10.04 10.10 and 11.04
    On the purple screen press any key
    Press F6
    Press escape
    now press Tab and add
    pcie_aspm=off
    Hit enter and be patient

    Run live cd, then install from the desktop.
    But before you reboot:
    Open terminal window and type:
    sudo gedit
    Edit the file /etc/default/grub insert pcie_aspm=off as boot option like this:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash pcie_aspm=off”

    save and recompile grub.cfg with the command:

    sudo update-grub

    Good luck.

    This works on openSuse 11.4 also
