Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:
- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode - I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen - I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)
I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).
I'm running Sabayon on an Intel X4500-equipped laptop (the x4500 is based on the g43 chipset btw). The video card works, but I get low framerates in games and compiz. I had this working in Ubuntu after upgrading my video driver, but I have been unable to find the driver for Sabayon (or even for ubuntu, I didn't bookmark the link :P). I have the xf86-video-intel-2.9.0 driver installed. Does anyone know how I can speed things up?
Here goes the problem: I have a Amilo M7400 notebook with an Intel 82852/82855 GME video card, and X is a bit uncompatible with it.I've tried using the vesa driver in the xorg.conf, but when i start Xserver, it hangs hard in a blank screen. I can't open a new terminal and control+alt+backspace won't work.
what can i do? is there a log file for X which details the initialization of it?
I cannot install FC11 or FC10 on my Dell XPS One/A2420 machine. Every time I tried to install the Linux operating system, the screen goes black and the computer goes no response. It seems to have something to do with the video card--Intel GMA X4500HD Graphics.
I have spent the better part of 2 days perusing these forums for assistance. Here is the short story:I run a 7 year old custom build with a 82865G Intel Chipset and a NVIDIA FX5200 graphics card. Had been running a sluggish XP and after adding 2GB of fresh RAM wished to start fresh with my old friend, Ubuntu.
I've tried 10.04 LTS with and without my NVIDIA card installed with no luck. I have successfully installed 10.04 using the alternate install, but this also goes to black. I can hold shift to see GRUB and play around there, but no luck so far. I've also tried 9.10 but have not gotten past the pulsing Ubuntu image. I've seen plenty of support for NVDIA and Intel onboard graphics chips suggesting boot commands like nomodeset and i9015.modeset=0/1...it's all falling short.
I'm heavily leaning towards just installing an earlier LTS or a different linux distro all together. If there no one can help me debug, maybe someone can suggest a distro that will make me happy.
When trying to install Lucid on my HP Compaq 6710b (INTEL Mobile GM965/960 graphic controller) using the alternate i386cd with an usb pen i (re-)experiencing (known from the Jaunty installation) the following problem:Boot from USB (works) Select language (works) Choose to install ubuntu (works) Removing quit from the boot options, hit enter, see some output (works) Starting the installation interface (fail) The screen wents to black, but system seems not froozen. What i've tried to fix this issue:fb=false as bootoption (worked in jaunty, does not work with lucid) frambuffer=false
fb=off debian-installer/framebuffer=false vga=123, tried all of the offered modes
vga=771 (get some screwed up output on the screen, which i guess from that the system/machine is not frozen) i915.modeset=1 i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa etc
Anyone managed to install Lucids with INTEL graphics + the alternate cd? PS: I need the alternate cd to setup an encrypted system. PPS: Just tested the desktop i386 image which works flawlessly.
i just install ubuntu 10.4 linux 32.bit on my Pc and it's was running fine beside the video card (intel x4500 ) not supported in ubuntu anyway after i update about 251 package in ubuntu ,i restarted the pc after in the grub ...they show me 4 Ubuntu ! 2 for boot ubuntu and 2 for ubuntu recovery and 1 for windows 7 loader !
I have a Lenovo G550. I has a Intel GMA x4500. I use Debian Lenny 5.0.0. Changing resolution is not supported. Actually Graphic card is not installed. I have searched in packages but there is not anything in repos. I have asked my question in a forum, they told me add backports and installed the latest driver. I did, but it didn't work too. I asked abrotman and he told me : Lenny >> squeeze. But I don't want to upgrade my debian to squeeze because squeeze is unstable and I don't want to see crashing! I have googled, but I couldn't find any useful thing.
I have a laptop running Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity The graphics card has an HDMI output that I want to use with a second monitor, but when an HDMI output is connected there is no detection what soever. I think I need to install additional drivers to support Xrandr output when 2nd monitor through HDMI is connected:
With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.
I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

I have a IBM ThinkCenter workstation with an Intel i810 chipset and can only get a resolution of 800x600 maximum. I have read this url dealing with this chipset and resolution and cannot get anything past 800x600.http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x-config.htmland here is my /etc/X11/Xorg.conf
I also use an HDMI cord (since computer has HDMI support) so this may be contributing to the problem. The same does not occur with my laptop, which runs Nvidia graphics and Ubuntu. I really want this to not happen so I can play my games instantly without restarting a million times. Some games have yet to work (AssaultCube mostly).
Just a little background I have a sony vaio VPCZ119X laptop and have been struggling to get all components working under linux especially the intel graphics. I saw that once I upgraded to the latest available kernel release which currently is 2.6.37 rc7. The intel graphics is working, but sometimes when I boot I get a blank/black screen but seems to be lit up. All other functions seem working so for example I am able to login etc just that I dont see anything on the screen.
I have tried the following so far to identify the issue or isolate it:
- Switching to the console screens has no effect, still the black / blank screen.
- Restarting the system does not always immediately get the screen working, sometimes it takes a couple of reboots before the screen is available
- I have a switchable graphics with nVidia I never get this problem when I use the nvidia driver
- I have tried closing the lid etc as suggested in the below post without any change in output, will try further as there are other options available as well The "Black Screen" on Boot I see one difference between both the Xorg log files but I am not able to reason out why this happens hence I will just supply the files here and try not to theorize.
Xorg.0.log - This was the log output when I got the X display working Xorg.o.log.old - This was the log output when the X display was black/blank Also to highlight that I am using the latest kernel release that is still being tested I guess so maybe it is also a bug in the kernel?
Installing new Intel server S5000VSA (Sapello) motherboard with RAID 1. Downloaded F10 32 bit DVD and run install. Everything works fine and select Samba and all that. Install completes but on reboot get a blank screen.
I know with Windows one has to load the RAID driver off the Intel driver CD, so guess that is the problem. But how do I do this in Fedora? Question: How do I get to select the Intel RAID driver in the install process? There does not seem to be any place to stop and make this selection. I tried selecting the Red Hat and Suze installs on the Intel configuration assistant but it then reboots and that is it. In Windows it would ask to insert the Intel driver CD but that does not happen. So I am stuck. I loaded Fedora some 3 year ago and like it but then it was not on a RAID setup. I created a VMWare install on my desktop and did the same install options and it works. So the DVD seems fine.
I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 lts server on my Intel "fakeraid" (software raid) (2x250 sata).To test my RAID 1 I turned off one HD and start the system.The first screen (Intel software screen) show Status = Degraded, but the system starts normally with just one HD.Then I turned off the system and turned on the HD again, so the first screen (Intel software screen) shows Status = Rebuild. If I enter in the software raid panel the folowing message is showed: "Volumes with "Rebuild" status will be rebuilt within the operating system"The system starts normally... but this message status stays permanently even I restart the system again
I recently tried to install the proprietary nvidia driver to my laptop, but after disabling nouveau have run into a problem. When I start X I get an error
Code: (EE) No devices detected
Fatal server error: no screens found
I believe the computer is trying to use the on-chip intel card instead of the nvidia card because "dmesg | grep video" specifies "pci 00:02:0: Boot video device", "lspci | grep 00:02.0" gives me "VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
I have googled this issue all day and have not found a solution that works for me. nvidia-xconfig does nothing as doesn't "nvidia-xconfig --multigpus=on". Is there a way to specify which video card my laptop uses on boot? Maybe which my xorg.conf uses?
I have an Asus z9100 laptop with an Intel 855GM integrated graphics chip, which is running Karmic (the purpose of the laptop is to be a MythTV frontend so my understanding is that it needs to run 9.x in order to connect to the MythTV 0.22 backend - I have installed and configured this using the installable Mythbuntu package) and the laptop is subject to this bug which causes random freezes:
So, following advice for similar freezes I've seen, I have added the following options to my grub menu.lst on the kernel line:
and I have edited xorg.conf so that it makes use of the vesa driver instead of the Intel driver. This results in no freezes and if I wanted to watch Myth on the laptop screen I'd be squared away. However, the laptop has a damaged screen so the point was always to output the signal to an external monitor via its VGA out.
When I attach the external monitor and boot with the setup as described, the external monitor is never detected. But I noticed that if I remove the "nolapic nomodeset" from the kernel boot line, it is detected. However, signal is only output to it during the earliest part of boot (when the Ubuntu logo is in the center of the screen before the full-screen graphic with the animated progress line), after which the external monitor goes black and all the display output goes to the laptop screen. The external monitor power button is still lit up green as if it has been detected and is receiving signal, but it's just a black screen.
get the signal out to the external monitor after the initial part of the boot process, using the vesa driver? Here is the current state of my xorg.conf:

I got the weekly updates; libc files and an xorg core file from memory. Thinking now the xorg core possibly rewrote my xorg.conf!seems to have killed the restricted ATI driver. I can boot from kernel 184.108.40.206 but 27, the one I did the updates, after the Ubuntu progress bar I get a black screen. Booting from 26 I get the low resolution graphics guff and need to set it manually each time. Go to Sys->Admin->Hardware Drivers, and sure enough, the ATI driver is 'Not in Use'. Switch it on, try booting into 27, black screen.
Phew, back to 26, change to manual config, get back in, see ATI driver is off again, leave it off and leave manual graphics resolution and config, boot back into 27, everything is stretched and out of proportion!! But I can at least get in. Switch ATI driver on in there, reboot into 27, black screen.This is pretty urgent as my wife is end of semester uni stuff and needs this machine. Worse, so am I and have even more on the plate (but at least have a computer!),
I have an IBM X3250 M3 server were Iam trying to install Fedora 9 version on RAID 1 and am unable to configure it. Some body guide me with LAN card driver for Inetl 8000 series Gigabit NIC card driver for fedora 9.
i am using fedora 14. i need graphics driver for Intel 82579v . while moving folders it shows poor graphics.Login screen open as step by step. while playing videos ,it hang.my system is very slow now with high configuration. My system hang while improve graphics option in System-> Preference->Desktop Effects and select compiz and
I'm trying to fix this problem: [URL] I have a problem with fglrx driver since Catalyst 9.9. After installation and reboot I get only black screen when X tries to start and keyboard doesn't work however when I press power button then the system shuts down properly after a while. I have noticed this for the first time on Hardy after installing Catalyst 9.9 and since then I have the same problem on Karmic and Catalyst 9.10/9.11 as well. I don't understand the bold text, What is this X he's talking about?
I want to downgrade my Intel driver to version 2.11.0. I don't know what version I have at the moment but I have installed Fedora 15 (Lovelock). The reason is that Office 2007 has graphical bugs with Intel drivers that are newer than 2.11. So, will my gnome shell work fine after the downgrade and how to downgrade? I have searched a lot from google but didn't find any solutions.
My lap has a "Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)" video card, and never took the 1280x800 resolution (that I had on windows). I searched a lot, and I installed a driver from the package manager (can't remember the name ...). Well, restart, and it's stuck at the finish of fedora loading process (a blank line).
I can access to the terminal (ctrl + alt + f2) and modify kernel parameters. By the way, on gnome I could't enter to "Desktop Effects" (it threw an message like "can't enter 3D Acceleration")
I just received a laptop hp Elitebook 8560p, i installed fedora 14 on it. Archi : Linux 220.127.116.11-92.fc14.x86_64. So I installed without probleme the ethernet driver e1000e, but the wifi become a problem ! The wifi card is an intel centrino advanced-n 6205 agn. So I google it like other people and i found this :
http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=downloads I downloaded the iwlwifi-6000g2a-ucode-18.104.22.168.tgz and i copied the ucode in /lib/firmware and reload the iwagn with rmmod iwagn and modprobe iwagn as the link say.
It doesn't work, i tried with compat-wireless too, not succeed.I have any problem message in dmesg.
