HP Compaq nx7300

Had my replacment laptop today!

Now running a HP Cmpaq nx7300, 1 gig of ram, 80 gig hdd, Celeron CPU 1.86 g, shipped with Vista Basic.

First things first GOOD BYE VISTA, hello Ubuntu.

Machine runs nice and fast, but did have a problem getting wireless to work straight away, but after finding/downloading the following files into /lib/firmware/, then restarting all worked ok
  • bcm43xx_initval05.fw
  • bcm43xx_initval06.fw
  • bcm43xx_initval07.fw
  • bcm43xx_initval08.fw
  • bcm43xx_initval09.fw
  • bcm43xx_initval10.fw
  • bcm43xx_microcode5.fw
  • bcm43xx_pcm5.fw

will update here if i have any other probs.
