  • I'd suggest you should download and try some other distribution like Ubuntu to see if it works with your internet connection CD and USB. I'd heavily recommend this.

    Eysten? Do you mean system? No, it is not necessary to install most Linux distributions over Windows, but I don't know about Freespire.

  • You're not stupid. You've come to the community for help, which is what we are here to do. From your description it sounds as though you have a bad load or a cantankerous version of Linux. I was never a big fan of Freespire, especially with the parent company Linspire in disarray.

    As far as distributions to try I'd recommend Ubuntu because it has excellent hardware compatibility, a huge community to utilize as a resource and is built on Debian (a solid distro).

    The link to get a copy is here: [url]http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu[/url]

    The other one I would suggest is openSUSE.

    Hope that helps!
