Hardware / creating a bootable BIOS upgrate USB flash drive
« on: November 24, 2020, 10:21:10 am »
Dear Peppermint friend,

I just received today an old laptop (thinkpad t510) and I need to update the bios for that laptop.  I'm on my main computer (the one with Peppermint OS) and I'm trying to make a bootable flash drive to update my BIOS.. I've try with Balena Etcher and I got a message that ther's no boot table.

I don't know if it's classified in a hardware issue or a software ... but i give a try here

thanks for your help

Wish I had learned more about linux when I was in school ... here it's Microsoft product, everywhere ... so we learn computer on microsoft product, works with Microsoft product and pay for Microsoft product without knowing alternative ...

thanks again my friends !!!!

thanks alot I

The first solution doesn't solve the problem.

With the youtube testing method, I got what they call screen tearing, you're absolutely right about it !!!  I click on configure new display when connected ... should Idisconnect and reconnect the montior ???

thanks for you help

n.b. I also try to change manually the refresh rate but i go only 60hz ... Also I got an onboard graphic card, so maybe that's why I got bad visual quality

Thanks Dave,

I really appreciate your help. It's a step further to success !!!

Dear Friends,

I'm new on Linux and before installing that distro I had an older PC that I've tried 3 or 4 distro ... and my final choice was on this one (I really like Peppermint)

On my older computer, I had the same issue than that the one I use ... so it's not an hardware issue that I've got ...

Also, I use another computer with the same monitor, and it's only on my Linux one that I got an issue, and it's only occur while i'm scoling down with the mouse roller a web page.

On my screen it's like a diagonal blurred line that appear like if theres a crack on a glass and it disapear almost immediatly.

I was wondering what could cause that strange effect and if it's possible to correct my problem.  I can lived with it but it's kinda annoying when reading fast a text on a web page.  i don't know if it's a firefox bug (got an update since that I used Peppermint, and nothings change) a driver issue, a not enough strong graphic card (it's onboard on my olde computer that I've try and that one), etc ...

thanks for your support

Dear Friends,

I got sometimes issue to remove some software.  I mean, sometime I've installed it from apt, snap or other ways.  But for a software I don't remember where it came from so I'm not able to remove it.  Anybody knows where I can't remove that software or how that I can knows where it came from so I'll be able to remove it ???

Also there is something that I've issue ... I had some issue with a version of software so i've installed it with differents ways where it was available.  Instead of installed the software over it, the same software was on my computer 2 or 3 times (once with apt, one with the software store, one with another way that I don't remembered ...)

So I've found out that the software folder isn't the same way that Windows manage it (I'm a new comer here on Linux, that's kinda different from Windows that i'm used to uses since 20 years ...)

Is there any ways to manage differently the software that I've installed by a graphic interface where I can see what is on my computer, so I won't the same issue that I've explain here ???  Also the included mintinsall store, some software there it's not the latest versionof the program, anybody knows how to get the latest one or I should use another way like the apt command in the terminal ??? (it's that reason at first that I've installed the software many times with other ways)

thank you so much for your help ... I know there's lot of question that I have from installing software and I hope that I've exposed clearly my many problems (managing installed sofware on computer + how to always have the latest software (I know the apt update and apt upgrade command ... but not for the other ways.)

Just for information, I'm using an old xbox360 controller made by afterglow ... had some issue with mint for that controller (eachtime I boot my computer, I needed to execute the driver) ... no problem with lubuntu, and peppermint.  I know for su re peppermint is for me the best distro because of that ... I didn't want to spend to buy another controller and wanted a low hungry requirement OS.

It's perfect for all my needs and my retrogaming.  Works great with openra and supertuxkart !!!

So I'm really confident that almost any controller will works with our favorite OS
