    Re: Problem installing OS without optical drive or USB boot option.

    Here's something different... The screen went all wierd and no keys would work. Back to normal after reboot.

    Please check the attached photos.

    That happened after leaving Ubuntu 8.04 installing for about 6 hours.

    It has never done that before.

    Any ideas?

    Hi Fred,
    Yeah I know,

    8.04 was just a test that someone on the the Toughbook Forums suggested (being a Pentium III 800Mhz laptop and all that...).

    Didn't even come close to installing anyway - unlike Mint 11 LXDE and Lubuntu 12.04 and even Windows.

    Gonna check today for hardware info on the CF28 graphics (or video) card/board/chip, as I disassembled it last week in the hunt for any bad connections and perhaps mis-connected something upon reassembly?

    I've put it up for sale anyway.....

    I HATE admitting defeat... but this one beat me.


    The problematic CF-28 is sold!!!

    Thankyou Fred, thankyou all who contributed and I am sorry we cannot offer a solution to future readers.

    Adios, hasta la huego.
