    Re: Ubuntu Install Toshiba

    I heard somewhere laptops had a respose issue with the DDH in the monitor respose of resolution settings and stuff? Is there a linux i can use on it or a way to get ubuntu on it is prefered

    toss in i have a ubuntu install usb bootable i heard something about writeing in some file to turn it off?

    im not sure where im at the issue is it just keeps locking up freezing no input allowed randomly during install

    the wubi just locks up on boot it does for the reboot to finish loading

    Are you wanting to be able to dual-boot with Windows? Also, have you tried installing with a CD/DVD? Look forward to your response.

    Actually I would prefer dual boot. I managed to get it installed but it's still randomly crashing. What the issue is I have no clue.

    Is it possible its a hardware issue? is it the noDDH thing i read? whys it just randomly locking up?

    When you say it is the noDDH thing, do you mean HDD with your Harddrive? Can you be more specific of what is happening when the machine crashes? What error codes are you receiving, etc?

    Thanks!

    no the monitor doesnt respond with information but anywho
    the machine just freezes waiting for a response from the monitor on its display capability (im assuming) but either way it just freezes when ubuntu is run.

    I'm thinking the wubi install maybe causing the issue. What about trying to install from a disc?

    I'm still thinking it may be an issue with the Wubi install....have you tried to run from a Live CD to see if Ubuntu would boot on the machine without issue?
