Mint 10, Ubuntu, Lubuntu... 3 views of same egg. If Ubuntu has a problem with hardware, all three will have the same, because they are just wrappers on user-interface level.

Try something different, like Debian/Mandriva/Fedora/Slax(?) to check what they do with your hardware. And then decide which one to choose.


PS. You can have some reviews of different distros in my blog

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665 and I had what sounds like a similar problem. You may want to try turning ACPI off. That was the only way I could get Ubuntu 10.10 to boot.

Once I did that I was able to install and get a pretty nice running system. It would be great to see ACPI supported properly on the A665, but I can live without it for now. Give that a try and if it works.

If it does work, once you get installed you will need to add this line to /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi=off splash"

That will keep it turned off every time you boot up.

Good luck.
