Hi Guys Many thanks for your help. Sorry it has taken so long to reply - my father passed away recently and my spare time has been spent looking after my mother and sorting out her finances, so I never got round to logging in here until now. I'll give the drivers a go asap. BTW, will Gutsy run well ...

BTW, I'm running the standard Gutsy VESA driver for the S3 Savage chip on my T22 - anyone got something better running? I can choose the Savage from System Settings, but if I test it, blank screen, system hangs.

I am still working on getting suspend/hibernate/sleep to work Did you get anywhere further, RedGreen? I'm running (K)ubuntu Gutsy on a T22 and I can't shutdown/reboot either. When I try to, I get a blank screen screen with the mouse, then the mouse disappears, then the system hangs. Only way to tur...

I have a similar issue running JRiver Media Center in Display or Theater View (uses DirectX) on my T22. Initially, the graphics run fine, then the temperature raises rapidly to 85 or so and the graphics (not the music) freeze up. The fan kicks in but the temperature stays. Already tried new thermal ...

Finally got it to load on attempt 7 :D

And yeah, I reckon it was safe graphics mode that did the trick

Now I've just got to find my way round a completely new OS :?

Thanks Michael

I did try the safe graphics mode and it didn't make any difference, but from reading the article you linked to, it looks like I may have to try it another 10 times or so to be sure... sigh

Trying to install Ubuntu on a T22

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a T22 (currently running XP) and I can't get it to boot from the CD. The CD does start to load Ubuntu, but never makes it to actually show the desktop. I get the CD menu, the logo with the progress bar, lots of toing-and-froing from the CD drive, the odd message or tw...

The driver wasn't the one that came with XP, it came from the Windows Update site, and from looking at the files sizes and dates, seem identical to the one available from Lenovo. The drivers on the S3 site do indeed appear to be older. I tried installing them anyway but XP refuses, saying it cannot ...

The driver turns out to be just the same one I had - when I go to check, it still shows 6.13.10.7050

Thanks Musti, I'll check the driver out later. Funnily enough, it's not games which I have a problem with, it's a media player called JRiver Media Center, which in the latest version uses Direct3D for the "Theater View". JRMC is more or less indispensible to me and I'd like to make use of the improv...

What's the best video driver for Savage IX in T22 ?

Can anyone tell me the best video driver for the S3 Savage IX in my T22? I'm having some issues with Direct3D. My current driver is the one that XPSP2 put there for me, namely the Microsoft Certified IX 1014 driver v. 6.13.10.7050 from S3, dated 22 Jan 2003. As far as I recall, the T22 doesn't actua...
