Please post some specs or nobody will bother to reply. Be more specific with your problem.

Well, it's not so much that nobody will bother to reply, but rather that it's impossible to offer any useful advice if the problem description is too vague.

Harishankar is correct though; you do need to be more specific. Please give details about the hardware you are using, the system error messages, etc. Just saying "it doesn't work" is not a useful problem description. -- J.W.

How about the output of the following comands

/sbin/lspci -v


from a terminal. This should give us the info to start troubleshooting the problem.
good luck.
