    Which driver did you use to get sound working?
    and did you use ndiswrapper to get wireless working?

    I had the same problem the way to fix it is in the splash before u login type sudo -i then satrtx that way you will be logged in as root and hopefully fix your problem.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure its worth watching.

    You never will need ndiswrapper to get that wireless chipset to work. It is already supported by linux drivers bcm43xx and b43. Sound chip should probably be handled by alsa but that probably depends on later versions of kernel
