This is one of three duplicate posts, which is against LQ Rules:
Do not post the same discussion in more than one forum. Duplicate discussions can be frustrating for other members. Try and pick the most relevant forum for your post. If you are unsure put it in Linux - General.
Please don't do that anymore. Thank you for your co-operation.

Fellow mods: please leave this open, but move it to Laptop and Netbook where it belongs.
One dupe has been closed & I have reported the other.
