Kernal Panics with Linux Mint 17 and 17.1


I get kernel panics and computer shut down when trying to install and run Linux Mint 17 Mate and Linux Mint 17.1 on an older HP laptop. The laptop is a Pavilion dv 5140 with 2.0GHz AMD Turion chip, 2.0 Gigs ram and 120GB hard drive. Linux is the only software installed on the computer. Yet, I think my problem is probably related to the hardware? Does anyone have any suggestions or experience with this situation? Thank you.

Try debian, you can try either the live-cd, or the install cd. You'll also find that it will be less resource hungry than linuxmint or ubuntu.
