Try this: connect to the internet first, then open the system settings > hardware drivers. Are there any display drivers to activate? If yes, do it, then ok! – antivirtel Dec 17 '11 at 7:14

Done. @user38236 may accept it. – antivirtel Mar 29 '12 at 21:44

Connect to the internet, then open the System > Settings > Hardware drivers. Or in Unity Dash > Hardware Drivers.

Hardware Drivers window

Are there any display drivers to activate? If yes, activate it!

I hope it helps.
