Ok, I got Ubuntu working pretty decent. Even got the wireless card working, sort of. Just having troubles connecting to the wireless router. I know my old WEP key, but for some reason either WEP option didn't work. I will try a couple of things though when I get the latest freaking problem solved.

My power adapter decided to die on me. :faint::steamed:Well it is not totally dead, but it is no longer a trustworthy piece of equipment. A loud ring or hum comes out of it when it does decide to work. So in addition to my OS woes I have a power supply woe. I am not asking for help, because I know the solution is to buy a new one, I am just ranting.

I really like the Targus generic notebook power adaptor.
They've worked for me for dozens of notebooks over the years and one rides in every notebook that goes on the road.
The contemporary HP power adapters seem to fail very fast, very often. :fist:
Order it online. Office Depot and the like want a lot more money.
