View Full Version : [ubuntu] Display problems with Ubuntu 10.10

If you have an intel adapter, this will be helpful. I used the same thing with 9.04.

As it boots up you will see a figure in the middle at the bottom of the screen. When you see it, hit the space bar. Hit return for English and then hit f6. Enter the following string. i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa
then hit return. It will take a while for the final screen to boot. When I see the little arrow that is the mouse pointer, even though the rest of the screen is black, I play with it and eventually the screen does open up. Have patience with it. Be aware that this advice comes from someone last year and it worked, but I am but an absolute beginner. Thanks.
