Linux For Hp Pavilion G7

First, I want to state I feel so privileged to have CNET on my desktop tool menu because I want to gets edumacated .lol.. anyway, some time ago you forum moderators helped me decide to install linux mint after win 7 pro crashed.and I'm forever grateful for such advice, it has been good up until now my network wireless adapter does not function. just happened a few weeks ago. I thought to try and troubleshoot it myself but after searching online for step by step troubleshoot, I thought it best to ask the pros here once again. BTW , I can get ethernet/wire connection but can't seem to figure out how to re-connect wifi to the built in wireless adapter anymore for whatever reason. Also still using linuxmint16 mate 64-bit. maybe i did not secure or update ? what might have gone wrong with my wireless adapter or is it a software issue? tia, John

What works: It's awesome. My first exposure for Linux mint is really great. In just a matter of 1 hour, I have tried lots of applications. Getting photos and data from my iPhone 4S is really easy.

I want to try Ubuntu on a hp pavilion g7-1246ef computer. I got it as a 64 bit system with a win7 64 bit but now it runs a 32 bit win 7 (due to canon printer driver issue).

The Windows device manager displays:

I have created a live USB and then CD of Lubuntu 12.04, a live usb of Ubuntu 12.04 (all 32 bit), and tried to boot in each of them, set to boot from usb, reached the page with try ubuntu but then selecting it nothing happened, or so it seemed: in fact using a 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 live usb I was first under the same impression but when I pushed power off I realized a window was barely visible on an almost black display, and even folder icons were there but almost invisible.

I guess there are no video drivers for this system. Download driver canonscan 4400f.

Is there a solution?

[This is a late edit just to put things right for reference: even without nomodeset and without the proprietary driver, my machine would still work: just that the startup luminosity level was zero and had to put it up manually.] (I do not currently use ubuntu/linux on that machine, was just interested for a solution in such cases.)

UPDATE for 14.04

With the new 3.13 kernel that video card is now well supported - more details here and here.

It seems(from your image) that you have a Radeon graphics card..This may be the problem

When you reach to try Ubuntu page, press F6 and selectnomodeset option and then select Try Ubuntu and hit enter..Ubuntu will run the setup with basic Graphics.Then you'll be able to try/install Ubuntu..

While using a live USB boot, the try ubuntu page may have other options (e.g.use tab to edit): you have to edit so as to add nomodeset there: it has to look like that: quiet splash nomodeset

Then, continue to try ubuntu or install.

Hope that works :)
