I downgraded the kernel to Lucid (10.02) kernel. (2.6.32) while running Precise (12.04). That fixed the problem of DVI/HDMI. Very likely, the problem is in one of intel related kernel modules. I also tried xorg Lucid, which did not fix, and the tip or xorg, and did not fix. So, it's kernel module related for sure. You can add the Lucid to apt's source and ...

This was a kernel issue for Sandy/Ivy Bridge that is now fixed in 12.04 (among other stuff fixed for Sandy/Ivy Bridge). I just so happen to have an Sandy Bridge and have the same Black problem. This also happens with Nvidia card using HDMI but for them the solution was to upgrade to the latest Nvidia PPA Driver. In the case of the integrated video we need ...

I'd recommend a hardware switch for your monitors, where you can switch between "One cable to Windows, one to Ubuntu" and "Two cables to Ubuntu" by pressing a button and not physically moving cables. English isn't my primary language so I'm not sure what they are called, but most computer stores should have them available, it's basically just a box with a ...

I actually have something similar to this for my system, although I now use one as a Ubuntu desktop, and the other is a Ubuntu server - but it used to be Windows. What I did was to hook the keyboard/mouse through a USB switch. For the video, I connected the dual-monitor system normally, using one monitor on the DVI output, and the other from the VGA ...

Googling for the error, you "simply" have to install the font Courier (which is of property of IBM). You can install Microsoft Courier New by following the Wiki.

UEFI or BIOS? I think that windows has been installed in bios mode (using ms-dos partition table) and when you have updated the bios and then installed motherboard drivers have enabled gpt (using efi partition table) and your hardware has not been signed. So you can not boot because you have activated a new feature which is basically doing its job in ...

If your card supports multiple monitors (which it should do if it has more than one output) then it should work. I've never hooked up one dvi and one vga monitor but you'd be hard pressed to notice a difference in quality. One of my work PC's has double VGA monitors and the other has one DVI and one HDMI to DVI. You can't tell the difference in quality ...
