Compaq 6720s

  12 years ago
  HP (Hewlett-Packard) (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

The screen resolution is set to 1280 x 800 (16:10) @ 60 Hz by default.

Suspend/resume works well when closing/opening the laptop display lid.

The power management detected the battery type and there is the standard autonomy of about 2 hours as the screen automatically adjusts the brightness when the computer is not in use.

The sound works by default, but the volume needs to be adjusted.

What doesn't work:

By default, the wireless does not work at all.

What was done to make it work:

The user should download the wireless driver using the Hardware Drivers recommended from the Administration menu app, by plugging in the Ethernet cable to be connected to the Internet.

Additional notes:

Tested with the Release Candidate of Linux Mint 9 Isadora.
