Hi, Matt,

I just got this laptop yesterday. By the moment I only have had some success
with Ubuntu live CD 4.10 and a rather older Mephis version. Neither Hoary Live
CD for i386 or AMD64 architecture accept to work inside my Compaq. 

So I ask for help about the same subject: is there any problem with AMD Turion64
 processors?

Thanks, 

Miquel
