I am using Ubuntu 12.04 (precise) Kernel : 3.5.0-18-generic
I am encountering a strange problem, my whole desktop has shifted to right. This happened after I restored my system, I was getting a blank screen earlier.(something is better than nothing).
For some reason it also shows my display as laptop.
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 0.0* 800x600 0.0 640x480 0.0
lspci -nn | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0102] (rev 09) My Display on window supports maximum of 1366*768. I do not want to reinstall everything please help.
It is cycled around as mentioned by Eliah Kagan For correcting my blank screen issue I edited my grub file I edited this line and added nomodeset, without it screen gets all grained up.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset "
When I boot from live CD also I get the same shifted screen
Tried booting from live CD with 11.04 same issue
