Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

Note to myself: When the laptop isnt used for some minutes and the power saving function tries to turn off the screen, it is nicely blended. It looks like what we all want for the brightness keys. This also works independent of the nvclock and smartdimmer applications. Thus the kernel gives an acces...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

Since the command smartdimmer works, I found a gnome-pannel applet that manages adjusting the brightness with the smartdimmer/nvclock. It can be found here: http://ppa.launchpad.net/intuitivenipple/ppa/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gnome-smartdimmer/ It would be nice, though, to make this, or the smartdimmer/n...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

Ok, the "Problem" with the splash screen was easily fixed, since only plymouth-theme-ubuntu-text got installed during the upgrade and not plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo. First I removed nvidia again and deleted the /etc/X11/xorg.conf. After a rebooting the brightness keys worked fine (the other behaved ...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

Hi, first I re-added the package acpi_support. The I opened System>Administration>Hardware Drivers and tried the alternative nvidia driver, i.e. nvidia-173, rebooted but nothing changed. So I removed all nvidia-belongings hoping that the nouveau driver automatically gets initiated (package xserver-x...

It took me several hours to downgrade and then I tried 05ST, the most erly bios I got and the 09ST, which is often refered to as the best bios version. 10ST and 11ST are said to have a bug regarding the brightnes...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

It turns out the problem was in the BIOS and the problem was fixed by upgrading it to latest version. The only suggestion I can give you is to update your BIOS if a newer version is available Yes, there are newer bios' available. As I said I'm using the bios 11ST but there is at least 17ST availabl...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

Sadly the brightness-up and brightness-down key do not do anything since I installed the packages samsung-backlight samsung-tools and samsung-wireless. Before I saw the notice from gnome about the keypress, which now has disappeared. The problem has changed a bit and is given with more details as f...

Re: dmidecode=SQ45S70S

I must add I have a "special" Q70. On the sticker on the backside only NP-Q70 is written, which made the samsung support wonder, once. This is because I ordered this laptop 2 weeks before it was sold for the first time. Maybe it has some other hardware, I dont know.

Hi, your tools are just great. I didnt knew about them for the last two years and wasted a lot of time trying to fix the issues by myself. Sadly the brightness-up and brightness-down key do not do anything since I installed the packages samsung-backlight samsung-tools and samsung-wireless. Before I ...
