I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and while I can launch it in fail safe graphics mode, I only get a text console when I try to launch it normally.
Apparently there is a problem with my drivers or something related. I updated all packages etc. in fail safe graphics mode, this did not help.
This is a copy of /var/log/Xorg.0.log: http://tom.pastebin.com/aqgXA9Ej
As you can see, it says:
[ 69.197] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libfbdevhw.so [ 69.206] (II) Module fbdevhw: vendor="X.Org Foundation" [ 69.206] compiled for 1.9.0, module version = 0.0.2 [ 69.206] ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 8.0 [ 69.206] (EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory [ 119.528] (EE) intel(0): No kernel modesetting driver detected.

I tried adding video=S-VIDEO:d and nomodeset to grub launch command, these had no effect (found these suggestions on the web).
If I execute startX after logging in in this console, my screen becomes blank (well.. black) until I press the shutdown button of my laptop.

Is there anything I can do to solve this issue?
I have tried to use the xorg-edgers PPA with the following commands to upgrade my Intel drivers:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
However this did not resolve the issue.
Some information about my laptop, which I bought yesterday:
- Name: Toshiba Satellite L670 1DT
- Processor: Intel Pentium P6100 DualCore 2.0Ghz
- Video card: build in, Intel HD Graphics Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0
I was told that this is a new Arrandale processor, with chipset HM55 (very recent apparently).
