Fresh Install 12.10 HP G series Laptop Black Screen

Asked by Brandon on 2013-02-08

I am new to the world of UBUNTU so be gentle. I installed a fresh version of 12.10 on my laptop and now the laptop display stays black (no back light) but if I connect an external display it works just fine. My graphics are intel sandybridge mobile, 64 bit system. I have tried everything I know, but nothing has worked. If anyone could help that would be amazing!
