[SOLVED] Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop screen brightness wont adjust brighter in Mandriva spring
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 10, 2010
Hello I have a problem on my laptop Dell Inspiron 1525 when installing Mandriva 2010.1 spring edition which I belive is the power management program. Installing went fine with no problems and when I boot up after logging in and when the configuration manager message displays the screen goes dim and after the desktop is loaded I went to the power management battery icon on the panel I adajusted the screen brightness slider and the screen does not change or get brighter.
I also went to the configure the desktop program and clicked on the power management icon and tried to adjust the brightness there and nothing happend. If anyone could direct me on how to fix this problem I would greatly appreciate it.
I also wanted to note I was running Mandriva 2010.0 and the brightness worked fine except I had a problem with the flashplayer in Firefox. I installed Mandriva 2010.1 spring on a desktop and everything works great and I would love to have it on my laptop. I reinstalled Mandriva 2010.0 o

[SOLVED] Error on startup. Unknown file filesystem grub rescue>. What to do??
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 7, 2011
Yesterday I installed the latest version of ubuntu to my computer that was already running windows 7. I had everything working fine until in windows I deleted a partition that had nothing in it. After this I restarted but I can't get into either OS. I get an error that says
Error: unknown filesystem
I think I need to fix something in grub. I have been booting off of a usb stick with linux on it in the mean time. I am very new to this and the things I find on the web don't make any sense to me. Can someone please help me??
[SOLVED] Debian Wheezy on laptop: screen resolution needed at 1920x1080 for external monitor
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 13, 2014
Linux mix 3.16-0.bpo.2-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.3-2~bpo70+1 (2014-09-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux
I am running a new install of Debian 7/KDE desktop on a Strata 7440 laptop; the vendor installed the distro for me. (I'm a newbie.) I attached a Dell SR2320L external monitor, which has the capacity to display in resolution 1920x1080.
The only screen resolution that was available to me was 1024x768.
My vendor walked me through updating my packages from Wheezy backports to obtain the updated xserver-xorg-video-intel file, which gave me more options, but they top out at:
VGA1: still maxes out at 1024x768
So my current "best" option is not to use the external monitor, and work with a smaller screen at a slightly higher resolution.
I am hoping that somebody here has encountered (and solved) this issue.
It may or may not be helpful, but this is the thread I posted a few weeks ago in the Newbies section; it contains some other information regardin
[SOLVED] slackware 14.1 change screen resolution
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 4, 2014
I'm experiencing problems loading to level 4. It seems that 1024x768 is a resolution too high. I want to load to level 4 at a resolution of 800x600. How can I configure slackware to do so? I'm running slackware 14.1 on a pentium 3.
[SOLVED] Can Linux damage my screen when setting up the resolution? My screen is broken
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2014
I recently decided to try a new Linux distribution for my old Asus EeePC. The distribution's name is an Android port called Android-x86 (http://www.android-x86.org/), and specially designed for netbooks.
I tried this distribution as a live CD first and my screen started to blink like crazy, I had to reboot a few times and finally I got to play for a few seconds with the new distro until the screen blinked again like crazy and I am now left with a working netbook (drive spins) but a permanent black screen, when I boot the computer the disk spins according to the lights but nothing is visible, the installed Puppy Linux no longer comes up and because the BIOS messages are not visible I just believe that the screen is forever broken.
This was an old netbook, around 5 years old, I was wondering if it is possible that the new Android Linux distro I tried damaged my screen by testing new frequencies or if it is just a coincidence that the screen broke while I was testing this new distro.
[SOLVED] Mac Pro Nvidea dual screen problem (nothing but desktop background)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 30, 2011
Finally, after a week of tripping out trying to get Ubuntu working on a secondary drive, had it running just long enough to start trying to get the second monitor running with it.
Now, all I get is the desktop background on both screens. Nothing else. *sigh*

[SOLVED] Ubuntu 14.04 lts screen breaks up with horizontal lines, coloured rectangles ......
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 13, 2014
Greetings to all at the forum.
I hope that I can adequately describe my problem - here goes!!
My PC has Ubuntu 14.04 lts as its only operating system after getting rid of windows xp.
The system boots perfectly, giving me a screen with appropriate wallpaper and vertical directory bar on the left hand side. Most of the time I can open firefox, surf the net, consult emails, exit & close down the system without any problem.
However, If I click on the "Ubuntu" button on the top left hand side (is this the dash?) havoc breaks loose on the screen. Horizontal lines of different colours appear & the vertical directory bar dissappears! A diagonal line from bottom left to top right breaks screen into two parts. Sometimes an upsidedown image of my wallpaper appears in one of the sections. The screen flickers with coloured rectangles as well. A couple of times there has been totally black screen with the cursor (which moves but does nothing)
I hope that I have been able to gi
