View Full Version : [ubuntu] MTRR mess, need help restoring

November 29th, 2009, 04:58 PM
Hi all.
I'm in over my head. In my sad attempts to fix my laptop's fullscreen flash problems, I tried adding a new write-combining region to MTRR, which was recommended by another forum to fix the problem. When I attempted to go to fullscreen again, the window froze, and I couldn't even restart X with ctrl alt backspace.

Here is what comes up with cat /proc/mtrr
reg00: base=0x000000000 ( 0MB), size= 2048MB, count=1: write-back
reg01: base=0x080000000 ( 2048MB), size= 512MB, count=1: write-back
reg02: base=0x09f800000 ( 2552MB), size= 8MB, count=1: uncachable
reg03: base=0x09f700000 ( 2551MB), size= 1MB, count=1: uncachable
reg04: base=0x0f0000000 ( 3840MB), size= 128MB, count=1: write-combining
reg05: base=0x0fb000000 ( 4016MB), size= 16MB, count=1: write-combining
reg06: base=0x0fb000000 ( 4016MB), size= 4KB, count=1: uncachable

I don't know what I need to keep, and what I need to get rid of, and don't know how to do either.

Thank you.
