    Smile - screen static on netbook, but not on external monitor

    Hi all,

    I'm new to ubuntu, so forgive my newbiness.
    I have just installed UNR 10.04 on a blank netbook (No other OS) and there is no problems with it, except this...

    I have tried changing the resoloution and frame rate to no avail.

    The screen works on my external monitor, which i'm currently using to get used to ubuntu, but what use is a netbook that can't be portable lol

    [EDIT] I did a Checkbox Report and the netbooks screen did the same as my external for the tests (it turned off, changed from red green blue etc).

    The laptop is just a cheapy Hi-Grade Notino uL100 with the dreaded VIA S3G Unichrome graphics and a VIA processor.

    Everything else is fine, from mouse to sound, it's just the screen.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks

    My laptop displays static for several seconds before it displays the login screen, so I'm also interested.
