Battery not charging A110
« on: November 03, 2013, 09:46:11 pm »
I had to resinstall PeppermintOS 3 after failling to install version 4. I used ver 3 before but didn't bother to follow all instructions then. Now, I did follow all instructions with the result that "Adaptor is online. Your battery is charging (0%). And, it is not charging at all. I suspect Jupiter could be the cause.

a) are you sure the battery isn't just dead ? .. ie. was it charging before the reinstall ?

b) what problems were you having with Peppermint 4

c) what version is your BIOS ?
What's the output from:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | grep -i dmi

1) Yes, my battery was dead. I have put a in a replacement battery and now it is charging.

2) My problem with installing ver 4 was that after installation, and downloading updates at the same time (nothing else), is that I got a constant minus sign at the top left corner of the screen after installation. And, I could not operate the AA110 at all. Reinstalling the OS seemed to be the only solution.

I tried twice with the same result. Since the constant sign remained for almost an hour I gave up and reinstalled ver 3.

But, the question is, in what way is ver 4 better? Is it equally fast as ver 3? I havn't seen any reviews of version 4 for the AA110.

3) Yes, I think I have what must be last bios,  BIOS v0.3310 10/06/2008.

I'm running PM4 on 3 AOA110L's so dunno what's going on with yours ???

Did you install from the Syslinux menu (where it says "Try Peppermint" or "Install Peppermint") .. or did you install from the live session desktop icon ?
Did you try installing WITHOUT electing to download updates during the install .. then run an Update AFTER installation.

In what way is it better .. Xfwm4 Window Manager that includes a compositor for things like drop shadows, transparency, working dockbars, and Win7 Aero style Window snapping .. and more recent versions of some software.

Is it as fast as PM3 .. Yeah :)
