I have a HP Pavilion g6. It comes with a button on f12 that toggles the wireless on/ff. I've been running natty on it for about 2, maybe 3 months, and had to configure my wireless drivers upon installation. However, after installing updates recommended by update manager last night, my laptop now neither recognizes the f12 key's toggle action, nor does it seem to recognize the fact that I have any wireless hardware, despite a few restarts/shut downs.2 things:1) Did anyone else experience this after installing updates?

I just got Linux yesterday from a friend, and have virtually no experience with it. The simpler things can be made for me, the better, haha. Basically, I had Vista, then had to switch to Linux cause of a virus. I have an HP Pavilion dv2000 laptop with a Broadcom BCM4328 wireless card, and I have NO idea how to get the wireless to work. So far, I've gone to Hardware Drivers, and it says I have a Broadcom driver installed, but not active. I also went to Synaptic Package Manager, did a search for Broadcom, and just installed whatever was there (with the exception of one thing that wasn't related)

Hi, I've been trying Ubuntu for two days no..Just installed in on my HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop, but I can't get the wireless network to work. I use GNOME, and I have tried several guides about how to fix it. Some requires internet, which I try to get to work so that's kinda lame and the others doesn't help. I've tried with the Synaptic thingy and Ubuntu CD. I just tried a guide and now I can't even choose Wireless in the "Network Settings" window. A guide said that if I have Broadcom 43xx card it might show as "Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN" and mine showed as that, but still did

This is a small problem, just wondering if anyone else has had it on HP laptops. Near the screen there is row of touch sensitive "buttons" that control volume, music tracks, ect. it's called the "MediaSmart." While running Ubuntu, the mute button always stays in the mute position. The volume itself will switch off and on when I touch the button, there's just no way to indicate which position its in. Any help?
I originally had Breezy installed and loved it. Now I feel I've made a huge mistake by upgrading to DD as I've had nothing but problems. I've worked most of them out, but the sound problem still lingers.I did a upgrade through the packet manager to update my system from 5.10 to 6.06. And then the sound just stopped working. It works when I start up my system and login. But after I open a file with sound (mp3, video, etc...) it just stops. No support from headphones or anything.I've gone through the forums and the wiki, maybe I missed something, but frustration has led me here to post. Thank yo
Approximately after 4 days when I installed my Ubuntu 10.10 an interesting problem with my laptop screen starts. I had similar problem what you can see in this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCYVfGVGWyY&feature=related - but it doesn't happen all the time. The most interesting thing is that, than I had that problem only when I turn my laptop screen in different angle. And this "bad" angle changes by the time, so after about 15 minutes after booting computer I can turn laptop screen in normal position. This is software or hardware problem?
