  4. [SOLVED] Re: How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2

    That syntax is not correct; you need to escape the quotation marks, so it would look like this:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset acpi_osi=\"Windows 2006\""

  5. [SOLVED] Re: How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2

    "out of range" sounds like a message your monitor would display when the pc is setting a resolution and refresh rate the monitor can not handle. Rather then using nomodeset, try removing the "quiet...

    [ubuntu] Re: Video Card Driver stops my laptop from waking.

    Can you try booting with "nomodeset" and then provide the output of

    cat /proc/cmdline
    That way, we will be sure you are doing it correctly, as I have my doubts still.

    As for hibernating, I...

    Are you using network manager? If so, I believe you have to configure the routes (and DNS) there. Right click network manager > edit connection > select your connection > edit > IPv4 > Routes
