AspireOne D150 - External Video dies (X)
I've been using the netbook remix 9.04 Jaunty on the Acer AspireOne. Everything works great but recently I started using an external monitor/keyboard.
At seemingly random times, the external video goes black. I can often toggle the built-in lcd to come back on using the Fn-screen key combo but nothing seems to fix the external video except a reboot.
I can do control-alt-F1 and character mode works, but trying to go back to X just gives a black screen. This happens on different monitors too.
Acer support is useless, once they hear I wiped mickysoft and loaded Ubuntu, they are done helping.
Any ideas? I'm not sure if this is hardware or software.
