Haven't encountered the problem, but Linux is the solution.
I wish that were true in my case. I really liked the Ubuntu OS I
recently installed. There were only two problems that I thought would
be fairly easy to fix.
As a huge Linux fan I have to be honest here.
My son got a Toshiba laptop for Christmas and it will not run linux. There are fixes and they are simple if you are geeky like me but I suppose console editing of config files is not an simple thing for the layman.
It is only the second time I have found it not to work.
Luckily it sufferred a serious disk crash with 21.4 hours disk-on time (Geek mode on - about 700 unallocated sectors and bad sectors according to SMART) so the retailer swapped it for a nice Sony that does run linux.
It was a dixon's group retailer and I was ready for a fight but they swapped it without any hassles at all. No fun at all without a battle.
I'm wondering if Currys/Dixons are changing their policy. I recently took something back and said it didn't work after a month. No arguments, nor did they look in the box to see if I'd actually returned it.
