Acer Travel Mate 280
I had several attempts to install Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04, Ubuntu Remix, Mint, Lubuntu and Puppy on our old good Travel Mate 280, but not would install. I tried all options provided by the install set-up CD but it seems that LINUX does not the old pet.
We intended to use it for trial and promotion with friends and family instead of using the personal sets.
Its line # is 281 LC, it has a Intel mobile 1.8 processor and graphic ship of the 845G family.
Please, help me install any Ubuntu on this piece.
Re: Acer Travel Mate 280
so all the cd fail to load ?
try booting by adding on of these words on the boot line (remove quiet splash to see comments):
acpi=off and/or apic=off, lapic=off, nomodeset, irqpoll
or holding a key down when booting
or try with a older distro (8.04 for example)
a little help for installing:
