I'll "answer" my own question by saying it is now moot. I decided to nuke WUBI and install 14.04 from a live DVD. That fixed my problem. I did run into the same problem that originally caused me to use WUBI: the live DVD wouldn't install to my C: drive. This time I used GPartd to check and saw it was mounting C: and writing some temp files there so ...

" saw in 13.10. The effect is exactly the same as if discrete graphics is on, laptop is loud and terribly overheats. Typing sudo echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch gives no effect, output of cat /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch doesn't change." from my experience, DynOff works better than manual Off. It still says Off (DynOff) and I ...

The problem was the kernel 'nomodeset' parameter. I switched between the open source and proprietary drivers extensively and the problem only got worse. Eventually I lost the good resolution modes even with the proprietary drivers. The solution was to remove all fglrx* drivers and install the xserver-xorg-video-ati driver, then remove the 'nomodeset' kernel ...

After researching this, I can't find any terminal command that would display the maximum resolution supported by the graphics card. The easiest way to find out is to go to the manufacturer's website. As listed here, under specs, an AMD Radeon HD 7750 graphics card supports a max resolution of 4096x2160 @ 60 Hz per display, so you should be able to upgrade ...

The proprietary fglrx driver (which is what you get from Additional Drivers) is not supported anymore by ATI for any ubuntu newer than 12.04.01. Or for any other linux distro using the same kernel. You should be using the open source radeon driver.

Steam ships with it's own gcc libraries, which are outdated and do not work on distributions with newer libraries. For further information, check out: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/steam#Steam_runtime_issues To solve your problem on Ubuntu 14.04, close Steam and run: rm ...

I'm having the same issue trying to fix a graphics driver problem causing ubunto to crash upon login. Solved it by accident! I attempted to install some language updates, then went to the Software and Updates tab and tried to click X to close out of frustration. It then asked me to update, I accepted and upon reentering the list appeared. Try intalling and ...

This is likely to be hardware-dependent, so your mileage may vary. My hardware is: HP Zbook 14, with dual Intel and ATI Radeon HD 8730M GPUs.

ARandR will allow you to do this. It is available through the software centre. It is a GUI for configuring external monitors. It will allow you to extend your laptop screen out to an external monitor and drag windows across. I have used it for my TV. Go to the software centre and search for ARandR. Download and open it. It should automatically detect any ...

By default, Chrome(ium) doesn't compile the hardware acceleration code for Linux or for Mac and only compiles it for Windows and Chrome OS (for various reasons), so even if you override the software rendering list, and even if that list is completely green, hardware acceleration still won't be used. I have builds of Chromium Beta and Dev that do enable ...

It might be because you don't have VDPAU (Video Decode and Presentation API for Unix) libraries installed. Try running the following command sudo apt-get install vdpau-va-driver libvdpau1 libvdpau-va-gl1 libva-glx1 and then restarting chrome completely (all its windows).

The best answer is: install a newer version of Ubuntu, with a recent kernel. Xubuntu 14.04 works great on that computer, and the GPU is never too hot. As this answer explains, "New kernel 3.13 has an advanced dynamic power management of the ATI card with the radeon driver. Also, "In normal conditions the ATI discrete is off." (When the cooler gets up ...

You should definitely read the official BinaryDriverHowto/AMD guide. The whole point is to install amd graphics driver first (you are given instructions for that on BinaryDriverHowto/AMD guide), and then apply some fix to be found in here on AskUbuntu, for amd drivers, assuming they won't work fine after reboot. Intel drivers for Ubuntu can be found on ...

In my personal experience, this problem is the result of trying to install Steam when the fglrx drivers are enabled. Try reverting to the open source drivers using the Additional Drivers tool, reboot, then reinstall Steam. You can re-enable the fglrx drivers after you have installed and run Steam at least once.

I posted this answer elswhere it worked for me and may help you as well. I am using a dell d430 with ubuntu 14.04. I was having this problem as well. After some tinkering I found a simple solution for the Dell computer and there should be a similar solution with other laptops as well. When I get the black screen after suspend I use the special function key ...

Boot into recovery mode and nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf then locate the Device section and find the line Driver and set it to "vesa" Save it and reboot. That should handle most video cards out there and allow you to get your drivers set up. Good luck!

Try to boot using nomodeset, some drivers have removed support for non-kernel mode setting. When you use nomodeset, the system will fall back to the VESA un-accelerated driver. When you see the kernel list, press e, find the line ending with quiet splash and add nomodeset. Then press CTRL + x to boot

There are two ways to fix problem: a) Patching generated packages https://gist.github.com/dz0ny/b9e3fce83d0c52e16857 b) Generating virtual package libc6-amd64 which lists libc6:amd64 as dependecy

I have the xfx r7 260x you have. I have it hooked up to 2 Dell P2815Q (4K), 1 Dell U2713HM (2560x1440) and one Dell E2414Hr (1920x1080) on ubuntu 12.04. I have the two P2815Q daisy chained on DP, the U2713HM on the DVI-D and the E2414Hr on the DVI-I. For now, you cannot daisy chain with the open source drivers, but I did manage to get it working with the ...

"Your graphics adapter is not supported by this driver. Installation will not proceed." That reads to me like you downloaded the incorrect driver. You may want to check what you downloaded. Also, did you check the System Settings -> Software and Updates -> Additional Drivers tab to see if Ubuntu already has some drivers for you?

Maybe you can refer to this even if it is 13.10, I think it still applies in this question

I have the same problem as of today, after an upgrade and reboot. I get stuck at a bright kubuntu logo. I can access the various non-graphic login screens using Ctrl-alt-F1 etc. I can boot if I select a much older kernel (3.2. something, as opposed to the default 3.13) but I expect this will create other problems. /etc/syslog and boot.log don't show ...

If you are using unity, then go under settings and then display and move the slider called "scale for menu and title bars" to where everything is visible, and text should follow in size. Comment if it doesn't, it worked for me.

This is apparently a known issue and won't be fixed. The solution is to suspend once manually, then ACPI functions will work until the next reboot.

Update: I just realized that even though our laptops are similar (E6440 vs E6430), we have different integrated video cards (yours has ATI, mine Nvidia), so my original answer is practically useless to you. However, I did have the same issue as you in that I could not get extra monitors to be recognized or configured and xrandr was not reporting anything ...
