    I just get my Razer Blade 15" Base (2020) | RZ09-0328x and try to intall Linux mint.
    The wifi and the touchpad don't work and I read that updating the bios should resolve the problem (at least for the touchpad). However, there are no update available for that model yet. I tried to use other updates from other similar models but it didn't work.

    Do you have any suggestion? Windows for gaming is ok but for working... :slightly_sad:

    With the latest updates, I manage to get the wifi and the touchpad work. Everything seems ok now.
  3. Shen13, where did you find updates for the 2020 Blade? Mine just arrived but I can't find where to go for BIOS updates?

    I was talking about the Linux Mint updates. After the installation of Linux mint, I just did the Linux update and restart. After that, I got the wifi and the touchpad working. But it did'nt work for the gpu.
  5. Oh wow, interesting. Well thanks for letting me know, as I was also planning to install Linux Mint (cinnamon). Did you try installing the Nvidia linux drivers?

    Yep. But as u can see in my other post, Linux can't even find the nvidia card. Looking on the web, it's a common problem. Apparently there is no solution for the moment.

    pop os deals with the nvidia card out of box on my blade 2020 base as long as you download the nvidia iso. For other distros you'll need to do some driver swaps to get rid of the noveau drivers.

    PopOS looks really nice. I didn't know that distri. I will try it next week. Thx
  9. Does sleep/resume work on PopOS when you close/open the lid on a 2020 Razer Blade?
