    Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5210 freezing

    I am trying to install ubuntu or any version of linux on my Toshiba laptop but it keeps freezing during the installation. I have tried many different distros and none of them seem to fix the freezing problem. If anyone can help me that would be great

    Hi,

    Don't know the specialties of your notebook, but seems to me that you should use some kernel-parameters

    So, when the little man and the keyboard comes at boot, press a key.
    chose the F6 Option and then the first try I would give would be acpi=off.

    I've been having the same problem with this machine since July (2011). See some of the details here: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...x-mint-892628/

    I put the project on the back-burner and was actually just searching to see if the problem has been resolved under a new version of the kernel or video driver or something.

    Apparently not.

    Does anyone know if ubuntu 11.10 will install on this particular laptop? I'm not very familiar with linux and have been trying to get it install on this model of laptop with no success.

    Any feedback/guidance would be appreciated.

    Thanks
