Travelmaster Ultra 654w

  8 years ago
  CTL (Laptop or Netbook)
  Works partially
What works:

Live DVD starts up.

What doesn't work:

Wi-fi switching does not work, cannot be turned on due to default OFF state after long periods of disuse.
Laptop does not shut down after ejecting the DVD. "Press enter" prompt does not come up and pressing Enter key does nothing. Machine must be force-shutdown.

What was done to make it work:

Booted up LM9 to turn on wi-fi, then it remained ON with LMDE.
