I just installed lucid on My laptop , COMPAQ PRESARIO A900.
First I notice that the wirelssLan light lit up on startup and after about 1 minute in the system, it just freezes, but I can still use the tab key to move around.

But then when I restart without the usbmouse it worked almost fine. the touchpad seems slow.

Then i upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32.14 and now keyboard, mouse doesn't work.

So frustrated, I had wiped out my nicely setup 9.10.

Is there any hope for me, Or should I default back to 9.10?

I'm assuming the keyboard and mouse are bluetooth? Hence the mention of wireless?

I doubt it'll work, but try:
1) Hold down Shift as you boot to enter grub.
2) Hit 'e'. Add "i915.modeset=1" after "quiet splash".
3) Ctrl+x to boot.

Could you also post your hardware specs?

Not a wireless mouse or keyboard. it is laptop with a wired mouse.


Reinstaling the fouth time. I found that the culprit was my ace MOUB103 mouse. ubuntu works fine when I use my touchpad or another mouse.

How do I fix this? Are there mouse that not supported by ubuntu 10?

& My wlan button still lit on startup, pressing it should make switch it off, but it doesn't in ubuntu. I would mind this, but becaue of wlan on drains battery life.

Anyway to not turn it up on startup?

Thanks my lspci below.
