PinGuy Linux is nice. I have never had issues running linux on any machine, including a window 8+ machine.. You of course would format the drive - dual boot is to much a thing running window 8+.
Pinguy 14 is very light and works great - 15.2 is a little heavy - Still nice and very functional.

Hope this has helped you out..

If it Has Windows 8 or 8.1 you might need a new Hard Drive to do this. Windows 8 and 8.1 are encrypted so you can't use Linux of any type. If it has Windows XP try Linux Mint 13 "Maya", the replacement for win xp, If Windows 7 64 bit: Try Linux Mint 17.1 *Rebecca"

SOURCE: how to enter bios on

  1. Restart the computer or power off the computer and wait for a few seconds until all in-use lights go off then power on the computer. The ThinkCentre systems do not have to be powered off to access the System Configuration Utility, however it will not display the prompt to press F1 to access the System Configuration Utility unless the system is powered off and then back on..
  2. Press F1 when prompted from a cold boot or if the computer was restarted press F1 continuously until the System Configuration Utility menu appears on the screen. If an administrator password has been set, a limited menu appears on the screen. In this case, to access the full System Configuration Utility menu, you must enter the administrator password.
  3. Follow the instructions on the screen.
  4. When finished, select System Summary to verify that any configuration changes have been accepted.

Lost internet connection linux mint 14


Installing your wireless driver on a Linux distribution is only half the battle.
Once it's installed, you have to configure it.
This means adding the network name, or SSID (service set identifier), and the passkey for your wireless network.
In older versions of Linux, this had to be done with the "iwconfig" command line tools.
Luckily, Linux Mint has incorporated a graphical utility for configuring your Ethernet and wireless adapters.
Open the "Control Center," which will be found under the main program menu on the bottom right of your computer screen.
Click the "Network Connections" icon under the "Internet and Network" section.

Click the "Wireless" tab in the "Network Connections" window.


Click the "Add" button.


Type the name for your wireless network in the "SSID" text box.


Choose one of the options under the "Mode" drop-down list. Most users will choose the "Infrastructure" option.


Click the "Security" tab.


Choose your network's security protocol from the "Security" drop-down list.


Type the key for your wireless network in the "Key" text box.


Click "Apply" to save the changes.


Click the network connection icon in the task bar. It will look like two computers and can be found next to the clock.


Click on the name of your wireless connection to connect to the network.



http://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi - The_network_manager.

Activate a Wi-Fi Card for Linux Mint
Log into Mint as user root. Launch a command shell, either by logging in in text mode or by launching a Terminal window from the graphical desktop.

Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig
Press "Enter." Make a note of the name chosen by Linux Mint for your Wi-Fi card it will be the only word displayed flush with the left edge of the screen.



Type the following command into the shell:
iwlist wlan0 scan
Replace "wlan0" with the name of the Wi-Fi card you noted earlier.
Press "Enter."
Mint will display a list of the wireless networks in range that you can potentially join.


Type the following command into the shell:
iwconfig wlan0 essid library-wireless
Replace "library-wireless" with the name of the network you want to join, from the list generated by the "iwlist" command. Linux Mint will join the network.
At this point you can browse the Web and access the Internet in other ways via the Wi-Fi card on your computer.

Ibm audio driver pentium d


The same model ThinkCentre can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkCentre, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

It's not a battery. There is usually a white plastic jumper between two pins, somewhere on the motherboard. No one is going to have a diagram for that model, since they change every few months. Removing jumpers should not harm your system, as long as you don't ruin something else by knocking into it.

I'd like to install a version of Linux on my laptop. I am a beginner; what ill fit me and how to install it?


For a beginner the best version of Linux for a laptop remains UBUNTU. But you can count on LINUX MINT and the latest version of it is called JULIA.
You can find UBUNTU here. And LINUX MINT here.
The BOTH can be installed via installation DVD and for both also you can TRY BEFORE INSTALL, meaning you can run the version of LINUX LIVE, taste and test it before you will install it on your hard drive.
