Linux Mint 16 works well on it, but linux mint 13 maya (LTS) crashed many times……

I recently installed 14.04 on my Toshiba Portege R930. Everything looks fine except for my HDMI port, which doesn't seem to detect displays. Has anyone run into similar problems? I have installed all the correct drivers for the intel video card.

Works perfectly with Ubuntu 14.04. I've installed it on two of these machines.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit with R930-14C.
System used to randomly freeze itself in interval of 1 or 2 days, but this was solved by installing Ubuntu 3.8.0 kernel.
Hibernation and suspend also didn't work at all, but fortunately there is a solution at After installing this module everything works like a charm.

Installed Ubuntu 12.10 amd64
NOT using Unity. Using KDE instead (by installing kde metapackages)
Have been running it for about 6 weeks.

Shutting down doesn't always work properly.
Need to use the power button about 1/2 the time. Hold it down for 6s.

Error messages shown while shutting down indicate problems with the ethernet adapter, and possibly other devices.

Apart from this, everything else seems to work.
