I have a Toshiba Sattelite A100-110 laptop (a few years old)
First, i wanted to try out the new Ubuntu 9.10 so i burned it and booted it up. Then i found out that my built in keyboard is not working, ok so i plugged in an external usb keyboard, that seemed to work.. Then i played around with the live cd for a couple of minutes and my mouse stopped working, tried using the trackpad instead, it worked.. Then after a while keyboard stopped working and trackpad as well..
OK now i was totally freaked out.. Tried installing Mandriva 2010 - SAME THING, Fedora 12 - SAME THING.. OK, well i tought weather my laptop is broken or the new kernel is broken..
Installed Ubuntu 8.10 LTS - WORKED PERFECTLY FINE. Hmm.. Then i installed Ubuntu 9.04 - worked fine as well. Windows also works fine.. But none of the new versions of distros work.. Well all i can think of right now is that it might be the new 2.6.31 kernel's fault.. What do you guys think? And what would be the solution for it? Downgrading the kernel? (not even sure how to do that..)
Thanks for listening to me
