I am having some problems with any linux distro that I have tried so far on my laptop.
It's a MSI 1029 which has:
ATI Radeon Xpress 200P chipset
ATI Radeon X700 128 meg
I have tried Ubuntu and Kubuntu both 32 and 64 bit and Mandrake 2006.0. Everything runs really fast, in a bad way too. The clock is always gaining a crazy amount of time. DVD movies play way to fast. When I try to install Suse 10.0 or OSS it hangs on the USB and locks the box.
I have tried noapictimer and irqpoll for kernel options and it still a problem. I am downloading slackware and I'm going to try my luck with that.
Any help would be appreciated.
