xserver ati/intel black screen "End desctription of problem"

Asked by greg on 2012-08-16

Laptop:HP G-72
Graphic:Intel i915(core i3) and Radeon HD 5470

After Ubuntu 12.04 is installed I reboot and I got black screen.I started filesafe mode and updated the system to 12.04.1.I got balck screen,too.I generated with "> X -configure" the xorg.config file and edited it (I removed obsolete monitors and screens).
And got black screen.After it I edited xorg.conf and added to "radeon" option that set hardware resolution of my notebook screen´s (for my notebook:1600x900" ) and added "Modes" to "Monitor" (1600x900,1024x768,800x600) . After reboot i got black screen but background light was on and I heard the sound played fo login scrreen and I got Terminals tty1 to tty6 but it don´t work always but often.A change to vt-7 is after it impossible.When I am in terminal and nothin do , screensaver start to work and screen is black and keyboard don´t work.It all seems that automatic hardware config of driver or server don´t work properly.The second problem could be that allocation of memory don´t work (i am not programmer). And on the end the booting with splash screen that can i see works but after it black screen. This problem have all laptops with HD 5470I hope that this writing help developers to find the error.

I examine log files of xserver and light dm and i found no errors :
xserver works and lightdm ,too

Try the boot option:

nomodeset

HTH

greg (grzegorz-rozycki) said : #3

with nomodeset works but this is not the solution of problem

Yes as you can now get updates, is it ok after you update?

greg (grzegorz-rozycki) said : #5

No it isn`t! It`s the same problem!!!

Did you install the proprietary video driver in the desktop?

greg (grzegorz-rozycki) said : #7

yes i did .The proprietary driver doesn't work,too.The same as open source driver

It probably is problem of distribution of ubuntu.I found on the internet SolusOS distribution and it have no problems on my laptop.
But i am waiting for new ubuntu and i hope it will be working.

YES!! After 3 months of thinking .... the solution of this problem is:

GIVE to KERNEL following option on booting: acpi=off

it works fine
but this is real problem of acpi layer in kernel.i don't know what have to do X11 in this case?!!
