HP Pavilion dv9645ed & linux
Hi, I recently purchased a HP Pavilion dv9645ed laptop and I'm having nothing but problems with it. First thing after i removed the preinstalled Vista i tried to install Ubuntu Gusty. The setup went fine but when I restarted the computer Ubuntu wouldn't start and give me this error:

I have to force it to shutdown keeping the power button pressed for a few seconds.
I tried googling but couldn't find anything useful regarding this particular problem. I'm not even sure of what I should be searching for.
If anyone has any suggestion it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Well, I've installed the latest kernel (22.214.171.124) and still no result. I'm really running out of options.

Have you tried any other distros?
I've heard some say that Sabayon works out of the box on lots of laptops.oz

Wel, yes, l I have tried Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Kanotix and they all failed.
Slackware and openSUSE worked though.
Using suse now. Hasn't crashed yet.

FWIW, on any laptop I have ever had, I usually just find out what hardware it has, and compile my own kernel for whatever distro I use. That way, I have control over what is loaded, and I know what is in my laptop.
You just have to make sure you include the critical stuff, and then you can go from there.
Also, if I plan on running linux on a laptop, I will do a lot of homework ahead of time to make sure what I want will run. I have a HP dv2000t laptop with the Intel C2D in it, and it has an intel chipset. Everything on the laptop except for the 56k modem works on it.
Sorry I can't help you more.

Hm... Ozzi, wanna give my guide a shot? The only differences between our laptops should be screen size and your graphics card (which should use the same driver anyway)
Ubuntu on DV6636NR - Ubuntu Forums
Edit: I mean if you still wanna try Ubuntu. Keep going with Suse if it's workin.Two levels higher than a newb.
