mini-laptop with linux preinstalled
Hello, I'm using linux for a while now. I deleted windows on 2 laptops and installed linux mint on them. Now I have a mini-laptop from my daughter and it runs an a linux version I don't know. It hasn't got many options and is difficult to install other software, can't get it on my wireless network (the linuxmint laptops working with wifi) and so on...
So I decided to change its OS to linux mint. I need to change the boot order to do this but can't find a terminal to change it and can't enter the laptops system. When I put in my external cd/dvd-player the minilaptop just powers off and goes black. Help me please, I don't know what to do and don't want to trow this mini-laptop away. My daughter bought it just some weeks ago and the store can't help.
