  Gateway (Laptop or Netbook)

  Works fine with some minor problems
What doesn't work:

My only issues are I can't figure out how to get the card reader to work (i.e. SD, XD) and the internal mic.

What was done to make it work:

I trouble shot the mic like crazy with ALSA Mixer and and everything I knew to(which was not much since I'm a noob). Then after a couple re-installs for fun, I ran 'sudo apt-get upgrade' instead of update. I was really tired and not thinking when I did so. Now the mic works better that it ever has.
