i have a toshiba satellite p500 laptop which seems like it shold either have the intel hm55 express chipset or the pm55

i checked in win7 and cpuz says it is pm55 while pc wizard says it is hm55 ( though pc wizard seemed to be wrong with some other stuff as well)

here is the so-called "detailed specs" from toshiba

which doesn't say anything about chipset

Just wondering why you wanted to know this... Are you having a problem with something?

Well, initially i wanted to check it against a number of HCLs before i bought it but now that doesn't matter much since i have bought the laptop anyway

but right now besides curiosity, It is BUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGING THE HELL OUT OF me that i am sitting at home with lots of OSes ( mac, win, fedora( definitely love it most ), and other linux/unix......), 5GB ebooks, a whole set of testing and benchmarking apps for win/mac ......, even called the goddamn tosh technical support ( the total retard didn't know the diffrence between cpu and chipset) and everything else, but still not able to find out what's inside my pc

besides part of what the GNU project was all about was freedom .....

I am not feeling much freedom right now not knowing and not having a way to find out what goddamn chipset i have

It is hurting my feelings, i am almost crying now .....

First of all, wording a post to make one sound like one is a sick puppy will probably NOT get you much help.
But MOST OF ALL using such crude & offensive language is just WRONG.
The mods have locked threads & banned posters for a LOT LESS than this.
So I hope that they will back me when I say that I AM offended by such & hope that if it continues, that they take said actions. (plus delete the offending stuff)

Okey dokey. This one just deteriorated well past the point of being useful to anybody.

dudu: From a brief glance at your output, I'd say you have an Intel chipset.

Download and run the Omega Caroline live DVD built by Rahul, then yum install lshw-gui along with any assorted needed dependencies.

Then: Have a go at reading the forum posting rules before attempting to post again.



Chilly Willy: You have access to an "ignore list" in your user control panel. I strongly advise you to place dudu386 on that list and move on as before.

This thread is going to remain locked, however. This kind of controversy is not needed, and can easily be dispensed with.
