this is the first time I installed Linux so I might be doing a few things wrong. I have Asus Zenbook UX32VD, I separated the SSD and HDD, left Windows 7 on the HDD and Installed Ubuntu (12.04 x86-64) from a Pendrive.
After the installation (and also using the Live USB) screen would hardly ever work (backlight would), so I had to close and open the screen 4 or 5 times until it stayed on.
To solve this I followed these instructions, which say that you have to change
quiet splash to
nomodeset in the grub file. This works, except that the laptop now can't resume from suspend/standby.
I used these instructions to change the grub file, these instructions, unlike the previous say that you have to add
quiet splash, I tried both and they both give the same results.
I also tried installing the NVIDIA drivers (x86-64 which should work for GT 620 M) but this didn't help and made the system give all kinds or errors.
EDIT: Thank you for the answer, by not resuming I mean nothing, no fan, no backlight, no keyboard backlight. I'll look at your suggestions now.
EDIT2: I found that the problem did not occur when using Ubuntu 12.10 (kernel 3.5)
