I dont know if this solution will work for everyone, but it seemed to work for me. Basically I ran a bunch of videos on VLC and the nytimes for a while until my computer fan turned on high, then reboot. The problem fixed itself. Maybe running a lot of videos does something to remind the computer what the right size is? I don't know, anyway, if I check ...

I found the answer - the file was inside linux-source-3.13.0.tar.bz2 which comes in package "linux-source-3.13.0". I filed a request to include this in the Ubuntu kernel at: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1403275

The xorg-edgers are known for potentially breaking systems. You will need to boot into one of the recover modes (the one with networking available) and remove that package: sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade To get into the recovery mode, hold the left shift key down at boot time so that you ...

"32-bit color" is generally a misnomer in regard to display color depth. While actual 32-bit color at ten to eleven bits per channel produces over 4.2 billion distinct colors, the term “32-bit color” is most often a misuse referring to 24-bit color images with an additional eight bits of non-color data (I.E.: alpha, Z or bump data), or sometimes even to ...

what is the difference between the driver that comes with ubuntu and intel open source graphics driver ? They are the same driver. The benefit of the one included in Ubuntu is that it will have had an additional period of testing by Ubuntu and its users and will remain stable for the life of that Ubuntu release. The benefit of obtaining it from Intel ...

They are the same. It's just that the one shipped by default by ubuntu are just a little old. But not much. With the intel graphic driver installer, you get the latest of their latest driver. if your distro is supported. As of today, 14.10 is still not. just a few days to wait though.

I have no solution for you. I just wanted to point out that from the output of lspci and lshw, you seem to have not one but two graphic cards. the second not being initialised by any driver: *-display:1 UNCLAIMED configuration: latency=0 Edit: and a place to look for more information is /var/log/Xorg.0.log, and the other log files like ...

It is more beneficial to dual boot Ubuntu with Windows for you now if you are willing to give Ubuntu a shot and in 95% of the cases no errors will pop up! Be aware of the process as it may give some problems only in the first boot process, I suggest going through the following thread and print it or have an offline copy: Lost Windows 7 in GRUB after ...

Since you have a dual GPU you should use Nvidia-prime or bumblebee to manage them both. Bumblebee allows you to switch between GPUs at a cost of performance Nvidia-Prime allows you to choose what GPU should he use. you should try both to see if its fixed i would advice nvida prime first to force it using your nvidia.

answer for question: 1- if i were you i would go for 14.04.1 because it is more stable and the update have less probability to cause your system to be unstable, also the more old is the system( especially LTS like 14.04) , the more stable it is, the more you can find answers for questions you may have in the future 2- if you decided to wipe your disk and ...

How much storage do you have, and to spare? eg. 250GB HDD, still has 100GB unused You would be better to do a dual install (Ubuntu alongside Windows, and your existing files), but that depends on how large the drive and how much you have stored on it. Before doing anything, make sure you have a complete backup. You should use Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32-bit. ...

You might want to check the cpu type (changing to 64 bit is a pain after setting up, just saying), but I'd get the latest version if you don't feel you are going to leave it for a year and expect it to work just fine. 14.04 is an extended support release, while 14.10 is a normal release that receives a (don't worry, completely in-system) update every 6 ...

Ouch! Well, I wasn't on 14.04 back then, but a: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg sudo reboot would have fixed it too!

I fixed it with this entry in /etc/default/grub: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" Thanks to Rmano

Please try: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux" It works at least for me on my acer asus 1005P, contrary to what it's written here. (maybe the kernels are different).
