I have installed Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit and then using kernel 3.11, but when i boot it show bios, grub screen but after that freeze.

Only way to boot is applying /etc/default/grub acpi=off noapic or nomodeset but then i have video output for HDMI1 and DVI1 and VGA1.

$ export DISPLAY=:0.0 && xrandr
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768

   1024x768       61.0* 
   800x600        61.0  
   640x480        60.0

        h: width  1280 start 1344 end 1472 total 1664 skew    0 clock   44.8KHz
        v: height  720 start  723 end  728 total  748           clock   59.9Hz

How can i have not default but hdmi1, vga1, dvi1 ? (if i remove nomodeset or acpi=off noapic then it fails to boot, and on screen i have frozen purple)
