Gordon Arkell, 2012/05/07 19:19

I just installed Ubuntu LTS 12 and my c700 powers off for some apparent fan/overheat/CPU issue. Does NOT do this in Windows Vista. Too bad. Otherwise it was great. As it is, it is useless as a paperweight with this Linux distro at least.

Bill Giannikos, 2010/04/06 06:26

As a general rule I typically recommend Ubuntu, but OpenSUSE is good too.

apolutrosi, 2010/01/29 01:04

I am currently running Ubuntu 9.10 on my Compaq Presario C762nr, and it runs great, everything worked “right out of the box” (post install) The only problem I have had is that the button to turn the wireless on and off stays orange, it doesn't change to blue when wireless is active, however wireless works great.

jack, 2009/08/11 11:04

wi fy connection is not supported in my system presario c700.how can work it/ plz help me

weedmushroomlover, 2009/06/03 06:51

I have run usb linux's on this laptop. Puppy linux does not see the wifi, slax sees it but does not connect to the network, DSL….forget it. I don't want to install linux in the hard disk as i also use windows for work.

Snail, 2010/01/31 18:58

I run Puppy Linux 4.3.1 and PCLinuxOS 2009.2 on my C793. Both use the wifi flawlessly, using wpa encryption ( I haven't tried wpa2 yet). Only the light on the wifi key doesn't work properly, it stays yellow when wifi is on. Anyone know a driver that solves that problem?

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 on my Presario C700. I have only a probleme with hibernation. It does hibernate but says that hibernation doesn't run !

Mitchell, 2008/11/14 04:04

Wifi

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 on this and although the Atheros wifi card is detected I have no idea how to turn it on. It does not appear as a network interface.

Yabuu, 2008/11/08 17:21
