Installing Replacement instance of Linux Lite

(1/4) > >>

les1949:
I would like to replace the existing Linux Lite with a new installation on my Dell Inspiron 1501. I need to replace the existing Broadcom driver because of intermittent WiFi connection and have been experiencing problems With the Synaptic Package Manager. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

shaggytwodope:
Could you explain what the issue is with synaptic (the error, screen shot etc), and how are you trying to install said driver.

Jerry:
Use Menu > Settings > Install Drivers to 'deactivate' the driver rather than Synaptic.

les1949:
I appreciate your suggestion of using "Use Menu > Settings > Install Drivers" but that is exactly what I have been doing and after a search for drivers it comes up with a Broad com 802.11 that I then choose to activate and after download screen and installing drivers I get a screen that I have no control of. If the courser wasn't moving when I moved the mouse I would think that the whole computer was locked up. I have waited as long as 30 min for the computer to finish with no effect. I can't even move the courser to the bottom of the page to try and find a menu tab and have to turn the computer of with the power button. Cut and paste or screenshot is not an option.

It was suggested that I start over with a new installation that I am willing to try if I could get some more help.

Thanks.
Les

Jerry:
Can you please do Create System Report off the System menu and attach it to your next post. Thank you.
