A very kind friend of mine in NZ installed Ubuntu
Linux on my laptop about 12mths ago when Windows died and he convinced me how
awesome Linux was to use.
I have had no problems until just recently. The
laptop keeps rebooting when I try to shut it down and the wireless,usb ports,
memory card slot and cd/dvd drives have all stopped working.
I have had some
problems with the fan being quite noisy and the laptop running a bit warm. Could
these be linked to the problems?
If I could I would take it back to my friend for
help but he's in NZ, so he gave me a link to your user group in hope that
someone can offer some advice or mybe have a look at the laptop.
I am happy to pay someone who has time to work on
I would rather give it to someone here that
actually knows what they're doing and if studying will need the money more than
take it to a repair shop.
P.S I sent Paul a direct email and he suggested
posting my questions in the mailing list.
