View Full Version : [ubuntu] Preferences/Display Major Lag

August 19th, 2009, 09:50 PM
I have hooked up my laptop via HDMI to my Samsung LCD. When I go to system/preferences/display it either lags for what seems like forever and shows that my full processor speed is being used (2.10 GHz) or it will simply not respond. I activated the proprietary ATI driver for my graphics card.

When I restarted my computer, the TV showed output from the laptop perfect...but with no sound. Under "volume control" drop down I can select "HDA ATI HDMI (ALSA Mixer)".

The system/preferences/display screen has only come up working only once.

Any help?
