What about bluetooth on dv7-1215er? I have a problem.
Mandriva 2009.1 spring can't finde bluetooth module.
Somebody know how to fix this?
Sorry for bad English.

Raydude, 2009/04/16 04:34

To fix the audio issue, add this to your alsa options (usually something like /etc/modules.d/alsa)

options snd-hda-intel enable=1 enable_msi=1 single_cmd=0 power_save_controller=0 power_save=0

(the enable_msi=1 is the one that fixes this)

Try adding “pci=noacpi” in your boot options. Look here for further info.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=912896 and here if you need help editing your boot options. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions I hope this helps you out
