View Full Version : [ubuntu] Errno 5 error on installation.

October 7th, 2008, 02:54 AM
I'm receiving the errno 5 error on my laptop (Averatec 3250). I thought this was a cd error, but I receive the same error when I try to boot from USB.

Also, another weird error, when I boot from a live cd it goes to the command line instead of the live desktop. I found out ubuntu wasn't detecting my laptop's monitor and strangely enough when I plug in a monitor both the monitor and my laptop screen works and it boots to the live desktop.

Update: Before I could only get 6.10 to work.

I tried pretty much every version, but I ended up getting 8.04 to work off of USB. HOWEVER, whenever I boot up ubuntu won't detect my laptop monitor so I have to have a monitor plugged in during boot up. Then I can disconnect the monitor after it is fully running and it works fine.
