SSD replacement on NB30

I recently swapped-out the stock HDD for a SSD.

It went smoothly (using Linux tools).

I did not bother to reinstall the MS version of windows as Linux is a superior OS & meets all of my diverse computing needs.

I can post some pictures of the process if there is interest.

Re: Aspect Ratio on External Monitor? SOLVED

In Puppy Linux:

Power on.

Go to Menu - Setup -Laptop Tool

Choose the tab for Screen

Click Change Resolution

Click VGA1 & set as appropriate.

Click LVDS1 then click Off.

A new browser window should now open full screen & an E-mail window the same. (Only Seamonkey tested.)

Aspect Ratio on External Monitor?

Eyes get tired looking at tiny NB30 display so I found a Viewsonic VA2212M-LED 22" monitor on sale. The max resolution is far lower on the NB30 than that available on the monitor - so the default is only 1/3 of the available screen space. I think I need to change the aspect ratio but that control is...

Re: Another solution for backlight, sleep mode and usb power

I am using Pyppy Linux dpup Exprimo v. 5x15 w/kernel version 2.6.39

Any suggestions as to how might I implement your fixes, please?

Do I need to forward this thread to the Puppy Linux Forum and ask there?

Thanks!

Re: Brightness issues with Ubuntu Linux 12.04 on Samsung 700

I fixed it! I needed to remove acpi_backlight=vendor from the GRUB Kernel command line. It now looks like this: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash pcie_aspm=force i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 i915.i915_enable_fbc=1 i915.lvds_downclock=1 acpi_osi=linux" I no longer use the xbacklight solution (it ge...

Re: Samsung NB30 Netbook - Brightness problem

I know this thread is over a year old but was wondering if there were any new developments. I have the power-up problem on my NB30, the brightness is low if I power-up on battery, it is fine on AC. The Fn keys do not appear to respond, so no adjustments available there. I am using Puppy Linux dpup E...
