Ubuntu :: Intel HD Graphics On Aspire 5742 (integrated)?
Sep 1, 2011
in ubuntu land i have been thinking and i have intergrated HD graphics on my craptop i bought it for my study so it doesn't really matter but my theoretical max graphic memory is 3GB and i am only using 128 MB now has any one figured out a way to alter the default ;/. im sure it is possible to increase processing power form the split with CPU to but im sure acer have locked such capability.
! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel� 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...
I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...
Just got World of Warcraft Installed and when I start the game after I get past the 2 cinema's while I'm trying to click yes on the rules the screen seems to bee flashing over and over and over. I was thinking maybe the 3d accelerator isn't installed or maybe I need to install something because its Intel?
I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.
One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?
I have Dell E6510 laptop with i5 CPU (Arrandale), Intel HD integrated graphics card (Ironlake), and 1080p display. I know other distros are also having problems with Ironlake but there are some work arounds.
Is there a way to install 5.5 on my laptop and have UI and 1080p resolution?
I have to say that 5.4 Live runs well - UI loads with correct resolution. With 5.5 live I get black screen.
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I'm using a lenovo notebook with switchable graphics (Intel HD and ATI Radeon 5650), and I'd like to have Ubuntu use the integrated graphics, but I can't figure out how. The BIOS has two graphics options: switchable and discrete. On discrete just the ATI card runs, but on switchable, it seems like both cards are being used. Is it possible to use just the integrated graphics?
I have a desktop computer with integrated ATI graphics. Specs below and lspci log attached. I was running 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope until 1 week ago. Everything worked fine from the day I installed it. It's default driver worked fine and graphics requiring applications like Google Earth and Secret Maryo Chronicles (game) ran smoothly. Then about a week or so ago I did a clean install of Lucid on this PC. And now Secret Maryo Chronicles runs choppy and Google Earth doesn't run and display images smoothly. I could understand having problems like this if I were switching to Fedora or something but I'm still using the same distro (and both are recent versions).
Computer Specs: ATI Radeon Xpress 200 integrated graphics with 256 MB RAM Intel Pentium 4 clocked at 3.00 Ghz 2 GB RAM (.25 being used for graphics card) 500 GB Hard drive (355 for Ubuntu) 2 DVD drives
I previously had a dual output Nvidia 7300le which worked fine with 2 monitors (2xDell e196fp). Now however I have just added a new monitor to my setup (and a different graphics card). I've gotten to the stage where it recognises all 3 monitors (2xdell 196fp and 1x samsung syncmaster) and also the new graphics card (Nvidia PCIe 210)...it took me ages to get to this stage and a lot of hacking around in the bios!
I've got it so that it runs two monitors fine (the two connected to the graphics card) but I cant manage to extend the desktop onto the monitor connected to the integrated GPU (I can on windows). It definitely recognises it as when I startup it gives me a command prompt on the 3rd window (integrated gpu) and then when I do startx it runs the session on the other two monitors!
I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 220.127.116.11-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :
Code: X.org X Server 1.8.0 Release Date: 2010-04-02 [ 15.124] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 [ 15.124] Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX [ 15.124] Current Operating System: Linux linux-7xhd 18.104.22.168-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 [Code]....
I have Ubuntu Natty installed on my computer, and I cannot activate the desktop effects and animations. I know that they can be activated, as I used them on Gutsy, but they have somehow been disabled during an update. I want to reactivate them, but every time I try I am told that they cannot be activated because the right graphic card drivers are missing. I have an integrated Intel card on my computer. Is there any way I can reactivate the visual effects? If not, how was I able to activate them in Gutsy?
This problem doesn't really have anything to do with Linux, but I've used Linux exclusively for 10 years and this system is Ubuntu bound anyway, (plus i don't trust other forums, always with the windows) so... Basically, my brother's GF's computer has a broken integrated graphics card. Literally. Some of the the solder points have broken, and it just doesn't work anymore. The plan is/was replace it with an Nvidia Geforce N6200 AGP since it has an AGP slot. The rest of the MoBo seems fine.
The problem is I don't know how to switch from the broken integrated graphics to the new AGP. The screen will not come on with the monitor plugged into either of them. Will a bios reset switch them for me (so I can finally fix this damn thing)? Or is a new motherboard necessary?
I have an ethernet card that used to work with Linux, but it had its firmware corrutped. (not as a result of the kernel its a different model) I think it had something to do with the thunderstorm I was using the computer in. Anyway, it is an Intel 82562EZ 10/100 Ethernet Controller (rev 01). The device manager in windows xp calls it an Intel PRO/100 VE card, which I think is the same thing. The card works in windows but not in linux. Upon firing up the intel proset software, and running hardware diagnostics the test says the eeprom test failed. Is there any way I can flash the eeprom so I can have a working card?
EDIT: Card fixed after leaving unplugged. It is important to also unplug the power supply connectors from the motherboard as well as capacitors may not discharge otherwise. Also be sure to remove the cmos battery. Oh, yeah don't try to use that intel utility on integrated networking devices. "IBAUTIL is not intended as a utility for LAN-On-Motherboard (LOM) [integrated] implementations."
I have a PCI graphics card, Nvidia Geforce FX 5500, but can't get it to work. I have 10.04 installed on a Dell Dimension 3000, P4, 1Gb RAM, integrated graphics. I installed 10.04 without the card in the machine, then shut down and plugged the card in and booted it up again (BIOS setting is 'onboard' for integrated graphics, 8Mb; only other option is 'auto'). Checking the hardware drivers I can see the recommended Nvidia drivers (v173, not yet activated) and lspci gives me the integrated as well as the Nvidia listing:
So far so good, but that's where it ends. Changing the BIOS setting to 'auto' turns the screen off on reboot, both for the monitor connected to the VGA port of the Nvidia card and for the monitor connected to the VGA port of the motherboard. I have to shutdown, take the card out and set the BIOS back to 'onboard' to be able to boot again (and shutdown, plug the card back in and boot up again to get back to where I was).
Activating the recommended hardware driver and rebooting (still with BIOS set to onboard) gives a blank screen (screen is still on and there may have been a flash of the purple screen with the ubuntu logo); nothing else happens no matter how long I wait. Rebooting doesn't help, it turns off the screen; same result for booting in recovery mode. I can get to the GRUB bootloader and when I replace 'quiet splash' with 'nomodeset' I manage to boot again with the monitor connected to the VGA port of the motherboard, but am not anywhere closer to getting my monitor working on the Nvidea card.
I've found that whenever I play a 3D game on Ubuntu, the graphics go crazy and make the game unplayable. I've found this an various games such as SuperTuxKart and Alien Arena.By the way, I'm running an ATi Radeon Xpress 200 (integrated graphics) with the default Ubuntu drivers.
I am fairly new to Ubuntu, so I'm sorry if I don't include any necessary information. Installed 10.10 rc from CD about 3 days prior to official release and everything was working fine... went about installing software and setting up laptop for use. About one week later, got prompted for upgrade and went ahead through update manager. Now can't enable desktop effects. Right after upgrade had a period where title bars of windows would not display... menus were present, but no title bars, no maximize/minimize/close buttons and no dragging windows to new locations on screen That has since resolved itself. Spent quite awhile searching forums, created xorg.conf at one point, later deleted it.

I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10. However the bottom of the screen is cut off with only a trace of it visible. I had similar problems with version 10.04 where both and top and bottom of the screen were not displayed.
I have noticed that version 10.10 does not use the proprietry driver the previous versions used.
In desparation I have tried Kubuntu but the results are still much the same.
Does anyone have any idea how I can display a full screen with an Nvidia integrated graphics controller.
I really wanna use the OS. I wiped my laptop and installed it but I can't change my screen resolution (it's stuck at 1024 X 768 and my refresh rate is at 0 HZ) I tried installing a driver that was for both the i9xx and i8xx chipset family but it doesn't look like it helped anything. I want to be able to play World of Warcraft Wrath of The Lich King but when I try it the way the computer is now the the frame rate is really really slow. I also need to fix my audio because there's crackling that comes from the speakers often. I attached a screen shot of what I get when I enter the command: sudo lshw -c video Changing the resolution isn't the problem so much as the fact that I can't change the refresh rate from "0 HZ" to anything higher so that my game will play smoothly. I would also like to put compiz fushion on my laptop as well but I don't believe it will work unless I resolve this problem.
I'm about to buy a laptop and there are some interesting and affordable Toshiba ones, but they all have Intel GMA 4500M graphic card. I have NVIDIA card on my desktop and their drivers work perfectly, i was just wandering what the situation with Intel's graphic cards is. I need 3D rendering for compiz and stuff, is it too much of a hassle to enable them?
I have a new Intel Atom D510 and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. The board is Zotac NM10-ITX.
My first issue was that during long and fast downloads (like transferring my home directory over the network) the system become pretty unusable: web pages would time out, windows would take more than few seconds to load, etc. I solved this by recompiling the kernel for the Atom. (The compile time wasn't that bad actually because the system is pretty simple and it was easy to isolate only the drivers I needed).
My next issue is that certain GUI-related things seem a little sluggish. For example, when the GDM loads it's not smooth like on other computers. When I log in, my background doesn't fade in gradually, it does so in about 1-2 frames. I was thinking this might be an issue with the GPU. It uses the i915 kernel module. Is there some tweaking I can do?
I was expecting to see a memory region of prefetchable memory around 128M here. Is this a problem?
What are you atom users doing to speed up your systems? I'm on Archlinux and I'm using a BFS patched kernel.
I have an integrated intel video and latest xserver-xorg-video-intel driver(using only stable repo). Now I wanna watch high-res video. From the bits of info collected from all over internet I understood that I need to:
1.aptitude install libdrm libva.
2.compile or find the .deb mplayer-vaapi and install it.
3.add -vo vaapi -va vaapi to the mplayer command line in gnome-mplayer.
My question : is that correct or did I miss something? Do I have to compile latest libdrm and libva or the ones from the squeeze repo will be good? Do I need kms enabled, i.e. install firmware-linux-nonfree?
My new motherboard has built in intel G41 graphics card. Problem is under ubuntu maximum resolution is something like 1300 x 1024, in windows the highets working is something like 1900 x 1200.How can I achieve the maximum resolution or near maximum on ubuntu 10.04, also note that I have the same issue on 9.10.I looked for the xorg.conf to try and manually set the resolution but the file does not exist in 10.04
Have a reasonably old HP D510 running onboard Intel 845G graphics, which has worked fine to date using Suse 10/11.x x86 and also have tried various Ubuntu breeds on it before, as well. Have just installed Kubuntu 10.04, and am having issues that irregularly, and apparently randomly, screen goes black and I get a message saying "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode".
I OK this and get a messages asking me what I would like to do: 1 Run in low graphic for this session 2 Reconfigure graphic 3 Troubleshoot 4 Exit to console 5 Restart x
Basically, none of these work. If I click 2, there are a number of choices which don't work, can only cancel. Basically the only fix is a reboot, and it will again work for a 'random period of time'. Have never had this issue previously, so it is obviously something that has been introduced with 10.04? Briefly installed Ubuntu 10.04 prior to Kubuntu, and think I had the same prob.
