    Acer Aspire AM3470G-UW10P desktop- I purchased 4 of these and cannot install windows 7 on them


    If your computer is 6 yrs or older it might not support windows 7 also you will need a minimum of 1 GB of RAM for 32 bit or 2GB of RAM for 64 bit to install windows 7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows7/products/system-requirements

    While installing ubuntu on my emachine d6417 when it gets to copying files it freezes and if i am using windows 7 sometimes in the middle of me doing something or checking emails it cuts off and dumps...


    You may have a hard drive problem or a ram problem causing the freezing i would suspect it to be a ram problem if it freezes while loading files from the ubuntu disc as ubuntu loads to ram before installing you can down load and make a boot-able disc from SEAtools to test your hard drive. And some older versions of ubunbtu (9.10 and earlier)had a utility for checking memory (ram) )you may be able to down load this tool from ubuntu forums or google for ram (random access memory )testing utilities that can be run directly from your c/d drive on a bootable disc.

    I hope this helps

    Well, Linux used to pride itself for being able to run on almost any machine. Ubuntu has become bloated over the years, but more user friendly. You may want to try an older distro like Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Long Term Support): http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04/ You will want the PC (Intel x86) desktop CD version ubuntu-8.04.4-desktop-i386.iso

    Or Xubuntu: http://www.xubuntu.org/getubuntu

    Or Lubuntu: http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=lubuntu

    Looks like your computer will support up to 2G of memory. PC 2700 DDR (SODIMM) Get a free scan form Crucial to see what memory use can use: http://www.crucial.com/

    I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my IBM R40 laptop computer. Although I installed two 512 MB PC2100 266 Mhz memory to both slots. However the computer only sees 512 MB. When I installed Ubuntu I perhaps...


    Well, what a mine field!
    I found this;
    There are at least 9 different R40 Thinkpad models. Look for a label underneath & see if there's a "Type" number...something like 2681, 2682, etc. Once you find the number, go to the following site & select your model/type from the dropdown menu:
    http://www.crucial.com/store/listmodel.asp?cat=RAM&mfr=IBM&productline=ThinkPad&submit=Go

    And being a 256Mb standard, that may be all it can handle. The above link is rather old but worth a try.
    Hope this helps.

    Hello Sir,

    I am sure your system meets the normal requirement for installing and using the Ubuntu OS. So you dont have to worry about the system speed and perfomance. I have also sent you the link to download the latest version of Ubuntu OS 10.4 from the original website. All you need to do is download it and burn that image file using nero or any image burning software to the dvd and boot the dvd in your system and install it.

    HD booting in one PC but not in another


    Ubuntu works with RAM and CPU Memory instead of a pc like xp that uses Virtual RAM. If the pc that could not load ubuntu doesn't have enough ram to support the reading of the Hard drive and the Operating System then it won't work and Xp will only run on the computer that xp was installed onto the hard drive.

    Hi,
    I too upgraded from Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 9.10 using wubi, the Windows ubuntu installer. Everything was fine, and I even admired the beautiful desktop, added KDE. I was very impressed until came the time to reboot. Grub hung. I entered the console and tried to repair: To no avail.
    I reinstalled Ubuntu/Gnome without installing KDE. All went fine until the time to reboot. It hung again. After several trials, I decided to go back to Ubuntu 9.04.

    From what I could gather on the Internet, it has to do with the new type of file system ext4. If only I had the choice to use it or not.

    Since I was using wubi and was not offered the choice to install the ext4 file system, I do not know whether that choice is offered on a full scale installation without wubi. You might try to find out if you can customize the installation process and not select the ext4 file system, if possible.

    One remark concerning the amount of swap space you are setting aside. In my opinion that's too much: I have a 2GB RAM, about 300MB swap space, and each time I monitor swap usage I find it very low to nil.

    Concerning Ubuntu 9.10, I will wait until the bug(?) is fixed before upgrading. Good luck to you

    I hope it helps
