It can easily go from 1300 to 1900 in window$.

What did we ever do before gucci replica online shopping? It’s hassle-free, you can shop while in the comfort of your home, snuggled underneath the duvet whilst drinking a nice, warm cup of tea. Most importantly it frees you up to spend more time on the high-street searching for other essential replica watches uk buys on your wish-list, or try on items with uncertain fits. Delivery is usually free around this time of year, so no need to worry about extra charges eating away at your budget.

Remember the aim of the game is to move quickly and nab those bargains before other savvy shoppers beat you to it. You don’t want to find yourself having to stop mid-day because gucci replica handbags your stomach won’t stop growling and you literally can’t face another store or sales person for that matter. Remember a moment wasted could mean a bargain lost! We recommend a full English breakfast to get you raring to go and keep you energetic throughout the day. Yes, an obvious one but you’ll be surprised how many shoppers ignore this all important rule. Trust replica handbags us, we’re guilty of it. Being impatient bunnies, we just couldn’t wait to wear the gorgeous heels we received for Xmas. Never again. Ditch the high-heels, mid-heels, whatever. No heels, full stop. They’ll only slow you down. Instead slip into a comfy pair of knee-high boots or sneakers. Your feet will thank you for it.

Wireless not working for me. I have windows completely uninstalled and running ubuntu 11.10. Any idea how to fix. “lshw -C Network says” “*-network UNCLAIMED”. Here is a link to my full dump of my bug report on ubuntu forums really need some help here.
Thanks all!

Asus X32a on Mint Katya Skype video is upside down, on Ubuntu 11.10 in Cheese also while taking photo - picture was mirrored not right way round, result was fine though. don't have HDMI to check (. Brightness is a problem too, has anyone fixed it?

Scott Maines, 2010/12/13 17:43

Re upside-down webcam issue:

I am running Fedora 12 (Constantine) on my ul30v-a1. I have experienced the upside-down webcam issue, but only on Skype- the Cheese application, for example, works correctly. The issue was resolved by installing the correct 32-bit libraries. The Skype client is still only 32-bit, and the lists of necessary 32-bit libraries indicated in various on-line posts was incomplete, meaning that Skype worked, but video chat was upside-down. Installing the missing 32-bit library, libv4l, fixed my problem.

Good Luck,

Many versions of this laptop have Athereos wifi and network cards which don't work when installing Mint cos Mint wants an internet connection before it will instal.

kurosch, 2011/06/23 20:38

LMDE (linux mint debian edition just installs right no problem here)

Martin Gifford, 2011/10/31 07:41

Thanks, I will give it a try.

Bluetooth works under both Ubuntu 10.10 and Fedora 13. Both 64-bit versions.

Petter, 2010/07/18 08:14

works great on ubuntu 10.04 lucid, only problem is brightness control (doesnt work). With the use of the Nvidia card under SATA compatability mode brightness can be set via the power manager but the start from sleep is much slower than when using intel graphics, guess it is because the drive uses a slower protocol. Hope it is fixed later by some update or handy user ;)
using kernel update 2.6.34

Hannes, 2010/09/10 12:04

Petter, have you tested HDMI and bluetooth? Not that i think of a reason it shouldn't work, but still, it'd be nice to get it checked off in the “compatibility list”.


Gregor Shapiro, 2010/12/02 16:49

HDMI does not work fro me “out of the box”
Linux 10.04

kurosch, 2011/06/23 20:42

you can change the bios settings for sata from enhanced to compatibility so the intel graphics is off and the nvidia on.

hdmi → nvidia
vga → intel

kristoffer, 2018/03/12 00:00

Running nvidia on vga now … Puppy Linux
