    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Thanks Tolkem for the response. Soooo, I'm suppose to have restore and backup files for Windows 7 on my backup drive. Can you tell me how to recognize the 'install file' so that I might make an ISO of it. The XP disc is suspect. Would like to be ready when I get a Linux machine functioning...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Hello guys. I'm losing track of where I'm posting. Tried to get the BIOS chip installed. Guy said it was the wrong one or not programmed, which it was supposed to be. The machine wouldn't turn on, so he said he put the old one back in. I need to take it home to test to to see if things are...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Thank you Wiley One for your generosity. I'm looking to get Linux on a laptop. I need to take my show on the road as a rule, so I'll find a way to fix this fujitsu or intend another solution. Finding a tech who can install the chip would be optimum. May be possible...used to be a Chinese guy...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Hello again everyone. The BIOS chip came in. Now I'm looking for the position of the BIOS chip. Any clue how I'd find that. Been searching for a video or picture or schematics for this Fujitsu Lifebook AH532 without success so far. Thought I ask here before I have to leave hispeed. I...

    Repository error

    Arochester, it seemed to have worked. I tried to open and edit the file with nano and the file showed nothing, so thanks for your instructions. I followed them and was able to edit the file in Nemo evidently, even though there were error messages or warnings on the terminal screen. The...

    Repository error

    Wiley One, Thanks for the info about the Sandisk, I suspected it was unnecessary advertisement. Now on to the repository file issue. I'm not clear on the directions. Ok, I've re-read a few times and I think I'm suppose to 'comment out' by putting a hash # before the <sudo apt-add-repository...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Tokem...Thank you Thank you!!! I'm glad to hear a new chip may fix things. I used Virtual box a hundred years ago in the Kubuntu 4.something I think tower. It was a major pain, yet that was before 8 months of Linux school :) . I do have an xp windows disk, so that could be possible. One...

    Repository error

    Arochester and Wiley One Thanks for the reply. Apologies my brain isn't working. I typed in that path /etc/apt/sources.list.d/additional-repositories.list with and without (Suite) and got no such command with Suite and /home/victoria without suite. Then I thought an etc directory isn't in...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Thank you Tolken for sticking with me through this. I'll try to do better in the communications department. What I meant is that when I was on my HP Windows machine the Fujitsu support site would not let me download the BIOS download. I had to connect through the Fujitsu Linux machine to...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Yes Vrai, it is strange. I am suppose to be able to access BIOS by pressing F2 or F12. They may have given a little different option originally, I can't remember. Now all I get is what looks like the boot menu with an additional 'application' tab, yet the boot tab offered a couple of option...
