View Full Version : [ubuntu] X200 with docking station - losing screen after docking

April 8th, 2010, 08:03 AM
I upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 recently on my X200 with a docking station. I occasionally undock and redock while my computer is still on (I am careful to always press the undock button on the left side. Sometimes, though, when I redock my system, it results in two black screens (on my laptop monitor and my external monitor). I can see my cursor but nothing else. Fn+F7 does not seem to help - I cannot switch between modes. When I undock, I see the same black screen with the cursor on my laptop screen only.

There does not seem to be any feedback when I click around on these black screens. My current solution is to do a hard-reboot, which solves the problem but is definitely not ideal. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can solve this problem?
