View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compaq Presario F700 screen issues

June 11th, 2012, 06:00 AM
I booted my laptop from a live USB and the screen shows up like this, I think it might be a graphics driver issue but I don't know how to fix it. This is my first time using linux.
Any help is appreciated thank you.

Hello- I am having a similar problem with same model laptop... Screen is totally corrupted, even when I go to command line interface I still cannot see to enter any commands. When I insert windows install disk, screen works normally, so I don't think I am having any hardware problems. I realize I am thread necro-ing, but I can't find any other posts related to this problem... Thanks. EDIT- I used the NOMODESET setting from grub and am now up and running. Sorry for pointless question.
