I've seen this post on the linuxmint forums on a laptop model I'm interested in:
I would like to know if anyone got this or similar laptop model working on Ubuntu Linux?

I think this is because of a SoftEDID issue (I've had this issue before).

I'll find a link that explains the problem/solution and post it here -- you need to extract your EDID data in Windows and modify xorg.conf.


See here and here.
