View Full Version : [SOLVED] x201 black screen on bootup with 10.04 RC

April 28th, 2010, 03:12 AM
Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:

- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode
- I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen
- I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)

Can someone help me? I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).

The suggestion in #8 worked for me with 10.04 RC on my X201.

Wow that fixed it! Thanks!

yea, is sort of a "fix" cause we still don't have full support.

now, im wondering if any of the kernels of this PPA will do better on our particular video card:

has anyone tried with a recent kernel from there?
