Pavilion Elite m9458fr Desktop PC

  HP (Hewlett-Packard) (Desktop computer)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

hibernation / suspend (no problem, but it was not working in my previous installation)
windows XP VM in virtualbox can access usb ports (fixed by command: usermod -a -G vboxusers my_account then reboot)
wine (needed for photoshop). I fixed the alt-click problem by patching /usr/lib/cinnamon-settings/ (

No problem for the following:

What doesn't work:

When I launch XBMC in full screen, I can not choose the display (always the 17") and I can not use anymore the other display.

It was working in my previous installation of linux (ubuntu 10.04 LTS).

What was done to make it work:

Nothing yet.

Additional notes:

I have installed linux mint 14 nadia cinnamon 64 bits with nvidia proprietary driver.

My graphical card is not the original NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GS because the fan has broken.

I have replaced it by a fanless card: GeForce 210 silent (MSI N210-MD1GD3H).

I have two monitors:
an Acer 23" (1920x1080) on hdmi
a Goldstar 17" (1280x1024) on dvi.
