    HP Neoware Mobile Thin Client m100 Video Driver Update


    I just got 2 HP Neoware m100 Mobile Thin Client m100 I got it to install but the video driver did not and can not find one for this laptop on the web

    Linux has the video driver at 640X800 on a 15" screen do they make a unversal driver disk for Linux like they do for windows if not how do i get the correct driver for the Linux system

    Full specs are HP Neroware Thin Client M100 A24 15" 800MHz 1GB 60GB Notebook Linux is Xubuntu 4.12 Xfce

    is there a way to update video driver on this?


    Thank you

    Did you check out the HP support page for it? There are a couple of Debian ones, Linux 3.1 and 4.0 (x86), there. Did you try the latter?

    Looks like its using the horror that is a via unichrome igp video (from the vn800 chipset). They have always been a pain and are over 12 years old now.

    Nice try but sorry, the xubuntu version (e.g. 14.04) makes far more difference than the xfce version (4.12 in this case). Xubuntu has been using xfce 4.12.X for 3 years now......

    About all I can suggest is modding the xorg.conf file.

    While the ubuntu help page doesnt mention it, its possible that you'll still be set to 'vesa'. Change that to 'via' and that alone might fix it....or it might not and you'll need to play with the xorg.conf file even more.

    Sometimes its easier to just buy slightly better hardware........
