Yes, in fact countless times, when I first started having issues I was hard resetting to get the laptop to boot. Since it went to sleep again a couple of days ago I've been attempting what had been working previously up to that point...but alas since then it didnt wake up... good to know it wasnt a linux issue.  previously with windows I was having problems already with the touchpad malfunctioning, freezing etc. this touchpad problem happened once AFTER the installation of linux which suggests this machine has issues.

Well. what to say,  thanks for checking these things.

I've tried the various keyboard inputs, to try and restore BIOS but nothing is working :-\

I'm at a loss, HP service forum just points to getting the laptop set to customer service because they would say it's a hardware problem but for me this seems quiite a it's brand new and less than 3weeks in use!  Well, it seems I'll continue trying to turn it on, and hopefully get beyond the flicker of light, beyond that, I feel like throwing out of the  window....Im not sure if I made a mistake during the linux installation, it would be good to know for the sake of learning from mistakes...


Hi there,

The notebook is a brand new Hp Stream 11 notebook, I dont live in US anymore so there's no warranty etc. etc.

Intel N4000
UHD Graphics

I replaced Windows completely, installed Peppermintos, everything was fine for a few days, and then I lost WIFI capabilities, solved with the help of this forum;,7894.0.html but around the same time I was having issues with startup; Upon powering on, an invalid CMOS checksum error message appeared before the system booted and I could use it, however Bios would be reset in the process...often the computer would go sleep and I would have to start it again...

Now since my WIFI issue required me to disable Secureboot in BIOS, that meant I was regularly going into BIOS to disable Secureboot to access the WIFI and us the laptop.  At this point there were issues....startup started to require repeatedly powering on; hard resetting the laptop by holding the power button and then hitting ESC to allow me to disable secure boot, this allowed me to work on the laptop for the next couple of days but instead of working on this CMOS issue immediately, I continued to use it and planned to work on that a little later.

Well, current status is no startup, no CMOS error screen, nothing, just black screen. If I hard reset it, there is a flicker of white and then nothing  Lights come on, battery can charge, I've tried turning it on fully charged and from empty to no avail.  Battery is not easily removed, I researched and found a related post;

which involves a Kernel update and it seems to work for that user but now I can't access anything so I'm not sure  what I can do... is there any hope? Any directions someone can point me in?  Battery removal etc?

That's done it!  WIFI is working again, thanks a lot!

For reference it's a HP Stream 11 laptop.

Thanks again!

Hello there.

I'm completely new to linux and recently bought a cheap windows 10 notebook to get started with it, and was delighted by Peppermint during the first few days.  Great work!  However, now I have a chance to learn more about the working of this operating system because for no apparent reason to myself, the WIFI doesnt't work on the third day.  It's a few days since the occurunce; I have started to understand more about linux and the terminal and have read around various forums but i feel like Im completely new to it and I need to ask more experienced people who can read the output from my terminal, and hopefully guide me on the way to more knowledge of this problem and eventually to fix it. Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
