    Problems with screen on laptop

    Hi,

    I'm a new user of ubuntu, and it runs really good on my home computer, but I just installed it on a laptop (Acer travelmate 5735Z), and right when I get to the login, the backlight on the screen turns off, which makes it really hard to see anything.

    Since I'm completely new in this, it would be nice if some of you could help me, and with as many details as possible on how to do it...

    Hope to hear from some of you

    Well...
    While nobody repleid I tried some things myself

    And so far I started going to this site http://ubuntu.intergenia.de/releases// and downloaded Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala), installed that, and had no problems.

    Then i upgrated to 10.04 LTS, and still no problems...

    Next I will try the next upgrade etc...

    I'll keep posting if it works, but now it's bedtime

    As far as I know, there is no bugfix available yet ... but a workaround, that might work: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/744187/comments/8

    Good luck!
