Hi people,
I had Ubuntu10.04, using inspiron1545 and running on an external monitor,all of a sudden, the lower quarter of the desktop got blacked out,i had no choice but to upgrade to 10.10.Today i closed the laptop lid and now the lower 1/4 of the desktop is blacked out.again.tried restarting,changing monitor configuration but no result.i have put an image to better show,as you can see the lower 1/4 before taskbar is just black.any ideas cos this is killing my UB experience
