That really had set my hopes high ;-) I could install the drivers in command line mode and the driver was installed successfully. However, the black screen issue was still present (The laptop screen doesn't seem to be lit at all), for which I had to put nomodeset in grub to boot. but once the system boots up, it says its running in low graphics & I'll have to reconfigure the graphics, and somehow I can't go past that screen. Weird. Would you want any screenshot/video?

Brightness is still an issue, and without nomodeset I can't boot (I get a blank black screen) and that link above, One of the answers is already about it; I have tried it but it didn't work, so.. :-/

So if we don't use nomodeset then how else will that blank screen issue is resolved?

I tried reinstalling it, and then received errors during boot that your system is running in low graphic mode. I repaired and switched back to the default version to make it work.

I just recalled that I have GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" set in /etc/default/grub Can this line be stopping the drivers to come into effect?

I installed Ubuntu on my Samsung laptop yesterday along with its Bumblebee driver for Nvidia card, and it all worked like a charm. But no success with this HP laptop :-/

I followed everything that you said on the link, and it still doesn't work :( I feel this link: wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Oneiric_Installation_Guide also says the same thing, but it just won't work. fglrxinfo says Bad Request and a few more errors and error codes. I have ATI Radeon HD 7450M card (found on HP website) and sudo amdccle pops up an error notification saying AMD drivers are not installed
