I've got an asus g1s laptop, and I'm using an HDMI to DVI cable to connect to my lcd display.

1) On boot, I don't see anything until I get to the login screen so I have to kind of guess when I'm at the grub menu.

2) Occasionally, I boot and get absolutely nothing, just a black screen. It will work the next time I boot up though.

Any workarounds for these would be helpful!
