View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation problems

May 29th, 2012, 02:02 PM
Hello everybody!!

I am absolutely new with Linux. Until now I always used Windows, but I wanted give Ubuntu a try.

I tried to install the newest version, but my HP couldn't coop so I had to install the 9.04 version that I had.
Now my problem is I can't connect to the internet, whether LAN nor Wireless.:( I search for solutions and found a way to install the Windows driver, which I did, but without any success.
Can someone give me a clue what to do?

Thanks in advance!:P

the first thing to try: is the livecd (liveusb) works , specially the internet ?

then its a good idea to talk a bit more than just "HP" about your system.

Thanks for the fast answer.
I tried to do it with the usb live version, but my laptop did'nt recognize it. When I entered the boot menu there was only the notebooks hd.
I have a HP touchsmart tm2 with touchscreen. And until now I think the main problem is the internet. The wireless adapter doesn't work properly and when I plug in the LAN cable and try to connect with the router by browser it doesn't answer.
Tomorrow I'll try doing the partitions you suggested.
