    Sent you a PM... Above said it installed fine without errors and created an xorg.conf... ? Waiting on your xorg.0.log file as request in the PM.
    thanks for the PM. Please see the log file attached.

    I wonder if MDM got installed when I installed digikam from Software Manager, or Photive (from a PPA).

    My sincere thanks to you and bogan for helping me fix this.
    All the best,

    I'm thinking for you, it was LightDM that was additionally installed somewhere along the way.

    Good job. You are welcome.

    Hear from you when your are ready for your Lenovo.

    Wait a minute. You said nVidia, but in one of the xorg logs, it suseccssfully loads nVidia, then in both logs... then loads intel and through the intel driver sees your display.

    Is this one a laptop with switched hybrid graphics? That is why it is in low-graphics mode. It is switched to the Intel GPU.

    Please post the result of
    Code:
    lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA
    And post the make and model...

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Thanks so much for this thread!

    I have a HP laptop with Intel i915 graphics and an ATI graphics card.
    I had big problems with Ubuntu 12.04, and got it to boot past the black screen by using kernel args:
    "nomodereset nosplash acpi_osi=Linux".
    Well this failed totally when I upgraded to 12.10.

    I finally got things to work with an additional kernel arg:
    "i915.blacklist=1"

    Yaay!

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I am having the same problem, probably due to graphics drivers having to be recompiled.
    What I can do: get into GRUB, edit lines etc. Boot with kernel 3.5.0.17
    What I can't do: boot with kernel 3.5.0.25 use ctrl-f1 to get into a terminal session

    I am stuck at the following:
    Note on the "text" option. Stopped working as of Kernel 3.x.x. I have a Luancpad and Upstream Linux (kernel.org) bug opened on this. My workaround for this is to substitute the option "single" and either use the "root prompt" or to use "resume" which should then resume to a tty text prompt.
    However, in GRUB I do not see the word "single" so I do not know how to use this instruction correctly for kernel 3.x. So what I got so far is:
    /boot/vmlinuz-3.5.0.25-generic root=UUID=f919a2b9-c794-4fce-9782-bb7c34acf48e ro nosplash
    What should I put behind nosplash as --verbose text does not work for kernel 3.x?

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I have tried reinstalling the open-source drivers with this guide: http://askubuntu.com/questions/77661...river-on-my-pc
    The weird thing is, upon reboot I got image on my screen, could login etc BUT it was all shifted! The left 1/3 part of my desktop was showing on the right. My mouse behaved like that too, I couldn't get to the left part of the screen by moving the cursor left, where the image physically was, I had to move it to the right, of the screen to see it appear on the other side again. I thought, maybe I have to reboot and if it still isn't right I'll make a screenie. But now I'm back to only GRUB...

    I really hope someone can help, as this computer needs to be back at my parents this afternoon and I don't wanna go back to Windows.

    Edit: I can get into 3.5.0.25 by putting nomodeset in the kernel line in GRUB. Any pointers for what I should do now? Did I use the correct manner of installing the open-source drivers?

    Edit 2: found som errors in the xsession-errors file:
    Code:
    openConnection: connect: Bestand of map bestaat niet
    cannot connect to brltty at :0
    
    (xfsettingsd:1782): xfsettingsd-WARNING **: Failed to get the _NET_NUMBER_OF_DESKTOPS property.

    (xfce4-indicator-plugin:1832): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_widget_realize: assertion `GTK_WIDGET_ANCHORED (widget) || GTK_IS_INVISIBLE (widget)' failed
    But the file was altered while typing this so it might be errors with the VESA driver. Also checked kernel.log but found nothing.
