Bug #727594

Asked by Colin Knight on 2011-12-15

When upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 the system would boot but the display comes in colored blocks and although the menus seem to work, they flash on the screen for a minute period and disappear and it impossible to open the terminal. It seems to be related to this bug for i915 but how can I load an update if I boot 10.10 on a CD to the 11.04 on the hard disk.

I am a newbee to Linux/Ubuntu.

I did an update/upgrade last night of 11.04 using sudo apt-get update, apt-get upgrade and apt-get dist-upgrade. It is almost the same; After logging in there is a purple/red screen then when giving the desktop 3/4 of the screen is the desktop and the other 1/4 the purple/red screen of before, then highlighting an area from the 3/4 is ok until right mouse button is released and that area also shows the purple/red screen, I can do this until all the screen is the the purple/red screen. Make sense?

Can you help with this problem?
