  1. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Problem has been solved in the 3.5 kernel of 12.10. All resolutions are available, no need to use nomodeset in the boot. Unfortunately, I cannot benefit from the Long Term Support of 12.04 but must...

    [ubuntu] Re: Video/ nomodeset

    Kevin, I finally resolved the problem by installing 12.10 as a fresh install. Whatever bug existed in the 3.2 kernel of 12.04 has been solved with the 3.5 kernel in 12.10. Suggest you try 12.10...

    [ubuntu] Re: Video/ nomodeset

    Wish I had an answer for you. I've been trying to get this problem resolved (see link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2057807) but none of the responses have helped. If you want, check out...
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Thanks for your suggestion, Epodx64. I have now tried it. When I removed nomodeset, the result was a blank (i.e., dark) screen for both the login screen and (once I typed the password blindly) the...
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Thanks so much for your response, Epodx64.

    Here is what the line now says (after ro)


    ....... quiet splash nomodeset video=1920x1080-24@60 $vt_handoff

    Is this the right syntax?

    After...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Thanks for your response. I had tried 1920x1080_60 and it failed, but in looking over the terminal output, I realized the true name was 1920x1080_60.00. I had to go through the mode adding process...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Is there any success to be had in modifying the contents of xorg.conf via gedit, or would that just scramble everything? I actually renamed xorg.conf to xorg.conf.old and rebooted, but that had no...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    I added some info to that post after you drafted your reply. I did try the 60 Hz resolution with the same negative results. When I tried using the 1920x1080_60 name instead of 1920x1080, I got a...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Thanks for responding, Cwsnyder.

    Well, I tried installing LM13, got the same blank screen problem during the install, so it must be in the kernel.
    The xrandr command returns:
    xrandr: Failed to...
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Yes, anything that looked at all promising. Especially the one cited in your post. I really thought the backlight=vendor might do the trick. To date, every variation I have tried -- except...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    Didn't know about the #; thanks for telling me. Renamed current xorg to xorg.conf.old. No new xorg.conf file created upon reboot. Perhaps o/s used the failsafe one?

    I'm stumped (which isn't...

    My apologies! When I posted my response to you, I didn't realize it was from a new replier. Thanks for responding, Bogan. I hope the output helped
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Limited resolutions with Sandybridge graphics

    When I boot without nomodeset, or with i915modeset=0, halfway through the boot process the display goes dark and stays that way.

    Since the intel drivers provide many, many more resolutions in...

  22. [SOLVED] Re: Loss of video during install process for 12.04

    Checked the BIOS, it's really simple. Not a mention of the graphics adapter or anything video. The BIOS is A06, dated 12/22/11, the CPU is G630. I, too, thought Intel just worked, but not so far...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Loss of video during install process for 12.04

    It appears the Intel integrated graphics controller is the only one in the configuration. Neither Ubuntu nor Windows 7 indicate an additional adapter is present. Also, the Additional Drivers...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Loss of video during install process for 12.04

    Thanks, oldfred, your tip about "nomodeset" did the trick! Now that PP is up and running, I've found another serious problem: the OS does not recognize the monitor and only offers 4:3 and 5:4 ratios...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Loss of video during install process for 12.04
