HP Compaq Presario CQ40-337TU on Ubuntu 9.04 (2)

Friday 3 July 2009 | post a comment

This the update information of my previous post. Overall, I feel satisfied with Ubuntu Jaunty on my CQ40-337TU. The 3D desktop running smoothly and sophisticated. All device work well, such Wi-Fi, optical drive, and webcam.

But, there is other problem which is very annoying. I read the manual about my laptop. It’s say that the battery life can reach about 4 hours 15 minutes. When I’m running Ubuntu on it, battery life can only reach about 2 hours (using 3D desktop effect, browsing activity, and USB wire modem attached).

I’ve try tweaking the power consumption. First, I adjusting display brightness into lowest level. Then, switch the processor volt into power save mode. I also turn of the desktop effect (same problem with Vista on Aero mode) and WiFi device. And I got about 3 hours.

Where’s another 1 hour? Any suggest for my laptop, or should I back to Vista the P1r4t3s 3d1t1on?

HP Compaq Presario CQ40-337TU on Ubuntu 9.04

On computer exhibition in Jakarta (Pekan Raya Jakarta 2009), about 5 days ago (23 June 2009), I was buying a notebook. I buy a CQ series of HP-Compaq, the Presario CQ40-337TU exactly. I choose this type because it’s have a balance between the price (540$) and the quality (HP-COMPACT).

I have a plan to install dual OS (XP and Linux) on it. But, I’m facing some problem. When installing XP, the installer can not found my HDD device ( I think it’s using the AHCI mode). I check my driver CD, and it’s only provide driver for VISTA. The official site also didn’t provide the driver for XP.
