I'm having a strange problem, everything was working perfectly one day, and the next time i turned my computer on it appears the color depth is 8 bit or something, and flash movies wont play anymore in any web browser, and the flash installer fails everytime. The low color depth problem is even evident in grub, and the login screen. I would think it might be the monitor If it weren't for the fact that the flash movies failed at the same time.
* the update manager did run a few updates the last time the computer was working correctly, after the update i shut down, and the next time i turned it on the problems were there.

Upgraded the following packages:
flashplugin-installer (10.0.22.87ubuntu2) to 10.0.32.18ubuntu0.9.04.1
flashplugin-nonfree (10.0.22.87ubuntu2) to 10.0.32.18ubuntu0.9.04.1
libapr1 (1.2.12-5) to 1.2.12-5ubuntu0.1
libaprutil1 (1.2.12+dfsg-8ubuntu0.1) to 1.2.12+dfsg-8ubuntu0.3
libxml2 (2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4) to 2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4.2
libxml2-dev (2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4) to 2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4.2
libxml2-utils (2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4) to 2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4.2
python-libxml2 (2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4) to 2.6.32.dfsg-5ubuntu4.2


My System:
Toshiba Portege m200 laptop
Ubuntu 9.04
Gnome 2.26.1
NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 32M/64M

What I've tried:
*edited xorg.config to adjust refresh rates color depth and many other things to no effect.
*installing different drivers adjusting settings, proprietary drivers and back to the default
*removed flashplugin-installer and flashplugin-nonfree and the flash plugin
*sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
*changed resolution to lower resolutions
*edited settings in startup manager

Nothing has had any effect and I have reset the xorg.conf to default. Any Ideas? Please help.

Could you post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log from when it starts with the bad color depth?

Here is the whole Xorg.0.log it doesn't really have a color mode error, in fact it seems that it's set to 24...

Could you post a screenshot of what you're seeing?

I sent the screenshot to my cell phone and it looks ok, so it must be something with my monitor. Now the question is, is the monitor itself having a problem, or are some settings within the os effecting the monitor?

CodigoVision
August 20th, 2009, 10:19 PM
I am still very stumped by this problem, I know it seems that the screen shots are fine, but i still believe the problem has something to do with ubuntu. I'm guessing something in ubuntu is causeing the monitor to display incorrectly, but it doesn't show up in the screenshots because in the software it is fine, yet cause a hardware problem. I still could use some help if anyone has any ideas. Again, another reason i still believe its ubuntu is that flash will not play at all anymore, even after complete removal and re-installation. Please help.

Could you test from a Live CD to see if it has the same problem? If it doesn't, then something probably did happen to Ubuntu.
Do you have another video card you could test with, or even a different computer? If the monitor is fine with other cards, then that also points to something wrong with Ubuntu.

August 21st, 2009, 05:06 PM
thanks, i'll try a live cd, and let you know what happens. unfortunately i don't have another monitor to test with.

The live CD had the same problem, and after removing flash and re-installing, flash started working again. So it just happened to happen at the same time, but it looks like my screen went bad. Thanks for all your help :)

Hello,

I'm having the same problem.
Did you solve it by reinstalling flash?


Difference: I'm using integrated video device from VIA chipset.
How did it happen: I just turned my pc on today and it was like that. These days I've just been using Kile and browsing the web.

What I have already tried: editing Xorg file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and adding the default color depth to 24. Needless to say it didn't work.

Any ideas?

Ok I just checked that the problem persists in Windows. So this is not related to Ubuntu.

It's not the monitor neither because It work with other devices.

I had the same problem once in windows, but I never solved it since it was on an old computer that I never used.
