View Full Version : [ubuntu] Dell xps l502x

September 22nd, 2011, 02:53 PM

I bought recently a DELL laptop with the following configuration:

- Intel Core i7-2720QM 2.20
- 8GB,DDR3,2 DIMM, 1333MHz
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M 1GB US
- CreativeSoundBlaster

It came with Windows 7 pre-installed but of course I did install Ubuntu (11.04).

I have to say that most of the configuration is working right now however video card doesn't work properly, I mean, when I run the "nvidia-xconfig" command, it generates a file that crashed the graphic mode.

Another issue that I have found, I am not quite sure if related with NVIDIA's issue, but this laptop doesn't come with a VGA output port but only an HDMI one. When I connect the HDMI cable with my TV set nothing happens, better to say, looks like any signal is transferred through this port from my laptop to the TV set.

The port is OK because it works with Windows :-(

I appreciate so much your advice.
