I installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a HP touchsmart 520. At startup or during installation I have a black screen (solved temp with nomodeset), I now search for a proper driver to enable the full native resolution of the display: 1920x1080.

Any help or directions is greatly appreciated!

lspci -vnn | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0102] (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

I have read some more and have additional information:

Does this mean that it sees 3 monitor ports?

I have tried to add the PPA of ubuntu-x-swat and xorg-edgers but there appears to be no updates. Also the intel driver seems to be uptodate:
