HP (Hewlett-Packard) (Laptop or Netbook)
Mint (older version)
Works fine with some minor problems
Must use a proprietary driver for the graphics card.
I also have the Broadcom draft-n wireless which also requires a proprietary driver.
What doesn't work:
Audio through built-in speakers doesn't work, but the headphone jack functions fine. (I now use Mint 9 and had no problems what so ever)
What was done to make it work:
You have to run the Alsa Update Script then
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
and add the following line to the end of the file
options snd_hda_intel model=hp-dv5.
Things should work after a reboot then.
