Because of the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, there may be some issues when using some resolutions with the VGA port on the laptop.

I'm running Linux Ubuntu 14.04 on my Laptop by having trouble for several times. Each times I turn it on, it shows an alert. Could you tell me why?

Installing RHEL5 on A3N works ok. The only device that is not supported by default is the WLAN.
But there should be a fix for that.
