Gateway Solo 9500 won't boot newer kernels
I have a gateway solo 9500
PIII 1ghz, 500meg ram
I can not boot the newer kernels.
The laptop will shut off during boot of a live cd. 0ne out of every 8 times it may boot and will run fine. If I try to install, the install will start but the computer will shut off before the install is complete.
This happened with the current releases of Slax, Puppy, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, and Backtrack,
The older kernels run fine and will install. Puppy 2.17, and Ubuntu fiesty fawn will work well.
The current version of elive will work but it is based on an older kernel.
I would like to use linux full time but I also want access to new repositories.
Any help would be great.
