= create a new xorg.conf ?


what is in
dmesg
xorg.0.log ?

head up! we will find something... just need few time.

"UBCD" = ultimate boot CD (see the net how to make this CD)
"USB via plop" = the plop bootloader is in the "UBCD" and can start (most probably) an operating system which would be on a bootable USB.
This was an idea from me to see if the USB ports are recognized; but now I think yes. Dont need to follow this path anymore in my opinion.
I will keep the head up and not give up. I like Linux (Mint) and I am using it on my desktop, and I will use it on my notebook too, as soon as I can. But I can use Windows there for short time, if I need to get another keyboard.
Now I have some other problems too, (at the moment). No big things thought, but I probable need to wait for a few days. I have never liked the Mageia that I did install (I did want to see it, but I got disappointed because it is so different from Mint, that I like more). I did then download the new Mint 14 Maya (Gnome), and because I didn't have any empty DVD's I did try to install it using SD card. Something did go wrong so I cannot boot to any system at the moment. I can use the live CD from Linux Mint 13 Xfce, and did tried to install it but somehow I'm still not able to boot the notebook (grub error).
Code:
GRUB Loading stage1.5.

GRUB loading, please wait...
Error 15
Using the live-CD, I can see that windows XP part is there and all my data part (ntfs) is there too, so I am not worried, but I will probable have to get blank DVD before I can keep on.
I am living in very small city, where the population is less than 2000, and most shops are closed over the weekend, so I will have to wait until Monday to buy one.
But just for information, always when in Linux, the keyboard is out. It doesn't mater if Linux is installed to the hard-drive, live-CD, or installed like program to the Windows (on the windows-ntfs part). But the keyboard is always working in BIOS up to selecting OS in Grub, and working in Windows-XP.

After now some long time, I Have now install Linux-Mint 14 on the laptop. I did have some problem installing because the process did never finish, until I found solution here in the forum, to remove slideshow before install http://www.linuxquestions.org/review...p?product=2397
Code:
sudo apt-get remove ubiquity-slideshow-mint
Of course the keyboard still not function in Linux, but like before, the keyboard is ok in boot until after Grub. If I select Windows in Grub, then the keyboard will work in windows OS. But if I select Linux-Mint, then when the OS is loading, the num-led will go off and the keyboard stop working.

Here is the inxi
