Hi,

I cant´t keep my connection for more than 1 minute. Connection breaks up and freezes. Only solution right now is to use cable connection. Any ideas? What kind of info must I provide?

Thanks,

Backed up my Home partition. Reinstalled OS again.... Topic closed.

2016-12-22 17:54:57 -0500 asked a question No internet connection

Recently, my grub menu dissapeared, leaving me only with Windows 10 booting automatically. Since I am a complete noob to linux, I searched the internet and found a boot repair disc .iso, which fixed the boot problem. I also had to set in the UEFI boot config the grub.efi file. Voila! I had the grub menu again.

Unfortunately, I lost my Internet access. Dont know why. I am running Fedora 25 with KDE, and the GUI tells me that I am connected, but if I open Firefox or any other app that needs access to the Internet, I cant get any data. What should I do? Hardware seems to be fine. I am running Fedora 25 Live from a USB drive right now...

Please help?

Thanx,

Pedro

Yes I did. I just tried and I still get the same error. Is there a log file of what happened to the service?

I managed to get into BIOS after a cold boot. No answers needed. Topic can be closed.

Thank you.

2016-07-17 20:21:53 -0500 asked a question Can´t access BIOS

Now with GRUB starting so fast, I can´t access the BIOS. Pressing a key during BIOS boot will only start GRUB faster.

What can I do?

Don´t know how, maybe due to the constant updating, I can now record dvds. Brasero only detects 2.7Gb on a 4.7Gb recordable dvd, but I guess that in time, things will change. Thanx for the support.

2016-04-30 13:25:48 -0500 asked a question Acer E15 E5-573G-59CD wont hibernate

Hi,

My Acer wont hibernate. It shuts down and by the time it takes to do so, I believe it is writing memory to disk for hibernation. But when I boot, system starts as normal boot, not from hibernation.

I am running Fedora Core 23 Workstation with latest kernel.

What can I do to solve this?

Pedro

2016-04-11 13:12:33 -0500 asked a question Damaged drive FC23

Hi,

I have been using FC23 and I just love it. Unfortunately, I am not able to suspend or hibernate the system on my Acer laptop. When I try to suspend, system blocks, and it looks like it´s shuting down, but it won´t suspend, and the power led won´t blink. It just stays that way. I have to manually shut it down by pressing the power button for 5 seconds. I want to know if this can cause any type of damage to the HDD. I ask this because FC23 is not booting any more. I am presented with grub command line. I installed on Windows a HDD test software and it shows 1 bad sector. SMART also says the same thing... Now, all I get is the GRUB comand line. I had to go to the UEFI/BIOS and choose the windows EFI boot in order to start Windows. It´s all I got right now.

Is there any software that can help me? Fixing the bad sector? Will the Fedora 23 Live DVD help me?

Thanx,

Pedro

2016-04-10 10:11:23 -0500 asked a question Can't record CDs or DVDs

Hi,

I have an Acer laptop recently bought shipped with windows 10 Home 64-bit. I partitioned the hdd and installed FC23, which I keep using all the time (I simply love it). Unfortunately, FC23 doesn´t do pretty well recognizing external dvd recorders. I have an Asus external drive (laptop doesn´t come with an internal one), but I can´t record anything with it. What can I do to change this? I tried everything with Brasero, K3B, DEVEDE, etc... Please help???

Thanx in advance.
