The "green screen" isn't Ubuntu specific. My desktop's onboard graphics card died once, and it resulted in a green screen freezing everything. It then subsequently hard crashed. It sounds a lot like a dying graphics card. The only thing you can really do is get a compatible graphics card for your system (or a replacement motherboard if it's an onboard ...

Board temperature is just fine, below 40ºC idle. It has a gammaxx 300 cooler so i don't believe that would be the issue. I also tried with 2 distributions (mint and ubuntu) with the same error. Mobo is quite old, but still works fine, so i have no idea what's wrong. Mainly because i CAN get to desktop and seems to work fine (i can move the mouse and all ...

I also have an athlon x2 and I've been experiencing similar video errors and freezes. It started after the last xorg update. In my limited experience I can only see 3 possible causes: 1) Old board that is starting to fail 2) Problem with xorg 3) Problem with driver In my case it was a problem with the driver, here is how I solved it: Do a CTRL ALT F1 ...

1. Assuming you are on Unity The script below should change your resolution, depending on the current viewport in Unity. I tested it on several computers for a while, and it ran without an error. I'd suggest however to also test it for a while and see if it runs without a single break; repeated wmctrl commands can sometimes exit "non-zero" incidentally. ...

When grub is running, no device drivers have been loaded yet, so it's basically running in BIOS mode, so this depends entirely on your BIOS. That being said, I've made it work on a PC with a broken laptop screen by turning off the power management features of the monitor but that was: guess it: using a VGA cable instead of the HDMI cable, so I think you're ...

This may not be the most modest approach, but it works for my Ubuntu 12.04 Acer. You will need to run this command as super user (su). $ sudo su # echo 200 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness This will change your brightness (on a scale of 0-1000). Be careful you don't put in 0 or your screen will turn off! If this process works for ...

You did not read the links I gave you nor did you post sufficient information for me to answer. I can take a guess. You have to manually add a mod line and you will have to modify this answer to match your hardware / xrandr output. Run cvt cvt 1366 768 75.0 notice how the desired refresh rate is added to your resolution ;) output will look like this: ...

Looks in System Settings - > Displays how configuration of your system looks like. If all is okay and it looks like you predicted then try to move your mouse fast, sometimes my screen may not work for some reasons even if I know that I'm on the level of the screen I need. If all of it isn't work problem may be with the cabal change your hdmi/dvi or other.

This is really simple using shutter and the best thing about using shutter is that you don't get to crop your menu later. It just captures the menu specified. Install and launch shutter sudo apt-get install shutter Using the shutter window, click on the 'menu' icon. See screenshot below: You will then be prompted to choose and click on which menu ...

Run the Screenshot program (gnome-screenshot, or search for Screenshot in the Dash). Set a timeout (or delay): And then get the menu and wait for the timeout to expire. This only works with a whole-screen screenshot. So you'll have to manually crop later:

Here is how I made i915 work in 14.04: I downloaded the intel-linux-graphics-installer from 01.org, ran the same program and followed the instructions. The program downgraded one package and installed a number of new packages. Eventually, I was prompted to reboot. I opened the site that normally causes my screen to go blank in google chrome. Since I ...

It´s probably a windows problem. Windows assumes that it is the only OS running on your computer (and so it is trying to load the entire hard drive but it can´t). Try to mount the windows partition into ubuntu and save your required data. After you finished that step you have to reinstall windows and declare that you wish to install it parallel to Ubuntu. ...

You may find conflicts in CCSM between 'Window Management' plugins. I wanted to stop the window filling the top half of the screen when I took it to the top edge. The behaviour seems to be determined by Grid and Maximumize. I found that even if I unticked: 'Maximumise' 'maximumize to up' and set 'Grid' 'Corners/Edges' 'Top Edge = None' it still half ...

First I found the exact kernel version using uname -r , then I applied the downgrade fix: sudo apt-get remove 3.13.0-45-generic sudo update-grub sudo shutdown -r now After restarting, it still didn't get fixed, so I reran it again, now downgrading it from 3.13.0-44-generic. After the reboot, it worked fine, and my current version is 3.13.0-24-generic. ...
