How difficult is the hard drive replacement process? I've heard that with some Asus netbooks this is nightmare and automatically voids your warranty.
Yes it does void the warranty. As you remove the screws, there is a point where there is one covered by a yellow label which warns you about voiding warranty if removed. In total there are about 22 screws you must remove to acces the harddrive. Might be worth it. I will defenitely replace mine as soon.
Is this a bios issue or will future updats to the kernel and accompanying drivers fix this? If so has anyone tried running the latest kernel on this hardware and seeing if sleep works?
sorry, my bad, I meant to say PROMPT. Change the value to 1 (in other words, it will prompt from where to boot). Then type "help" and when the help screen comes up just hit enter. wait a few seconds and it will boot.
I get the same thing, again, i have the MSI U270 Netbook that is based on the same APU... i changed PROMPT to 1, tried to boot from USB 2 and 3. But i don't see how to fix.
The only alternative i have is to install inside windows, but thats not really what i would like :(
I check further, but if you have another solution to boot it would be great !
I found that post #7 was the solution for me that I explained in an earlier post here.
Sorrry I cant help you much more, as you can see, I am no expert :(
Ok i used : Universal USB Installer from pendrivelinux.com
And I can boot with USB3 ! But Seems that Live doesn't work at all.
Great news eddakilla! Happy ur part of the ubuntu experience!
It has now stopped working. Not sure what may have caused it to stop working, maybe an update?
removing the top silver tab fixed my trackpad issues, but broke quite a few clips in the process.
In hindsight, the best way may be to unclip the two corners , then unclip by the keyboard then try to slide the pad up towards the keyboard.
