Exclamation HP with Nvidia Geforce Go 6150 linux problem

Hi.

I have a new HP laptop with windows Vista.
Don't like it. Trying to install Linux Ubuntu 7.10.
That isn't going as I thought it would.
I think I have some problem with the graphic drives.
Because the installation stops when it comes to the point where it's supposed to start ubuntu. I just get a black screen.
That was not what i hoped for.

I have a geforce go 6150 graphic card. What do you suggest that i do?

yes thats true it was easier installing ubuntu gutsy on a desktop.

I have a compaq V3155AU laptop with a nvidia GO6150 gfx card.

Problems i faced.. 32 bit Ubuntu just wouldnt install.. got stuck at the blinking cursor state after start/install has been initiated.

However the 64 bit ubuntu gutsy gibbon could be managed by me,though it was very frustrating thanks to the gfx card which was corrupting the display(although the mouse pointer still moved!) in the prelim stages of starting the "live" disk b4 installing.

SOLUTION:
i chose F4 at the start and chose 800*640 resolution with 32 bit and after that in the start install option i chose the 3rd option that is the "SAFE GRAPHICS MODE".

and this time it led up to the slow but happy start of the 64bit live cd.once the desktop came.. installing is easy.

Unfortunately this only worked with the Gutsy 64bit cd not the 32bit one

I have a TX 1410 (HP Table PC with the same card.)

X Fails to start (black screen) no matter what I do with Ubuntu.

Mandriva Powerpack 2008.0 seems to work very well though. I think its the wrong driver, because my computer shows the 8800 instead of 6150. Perhaps you guys can search Ubunto forums for help with your distro.

How about you guys do this....
When it fails to start X, install the latest 173.14.05 driver.

Yep, the 173.## driver works wonders, the 167 worked on my HP tx2020 too but had DMPS problems that are now resolved. If you have random reboots try noapic nolapic

Try to booting with 'nohz=off' or/and 'acpi=off' in kernel command line.... On my MSI M670X helps nohz=off.

I kinda gave up on that for a while. I tried the new gOS today and somehow it worked.

I only did the live boot, and I am still trying to find a distro that likes the touchscreen of the TX 1410, but X started just fine.
