I have a strange experience...

When I switch on my laptop (HP Mini) with out pulling any strings... it boots but just before showing login greeter it gives me some "Low graphic" error... then I have to chose some options to fix this problem and pass... after login I see the WiFi device is not ready!...

BUT IF at GRUB time... I chose "Recovery Mode" and in the action selection of the recovery mode, I chose to just "BOOT NORMALLY"... It boots without any single graphic error or problem connecting WiFi...

I want to get rid of this "going to grub and select RECOVERY mode, each time I want to turn on my Laptop!"

PLEASE HELP! Thanks in advance!


P.S. following I provide some info about my hardware....

running $ sudo lshw -class display gaves me:

and the result of the script mentioned in another AskUbuntu post could be found here

  • Recovery mode uses nomodeset as boot parameter by default. Does nomodeset work with normal boot? And since only Intel do any of these work instead of nomodeset. Some other Intel boot options Each line is one that may work acpi_osi=Linux or acpi_backlight=vendor or i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 You also can try just setting a specific screen resolution. askubuntu.com/questions/496944/… – oldfred Jun 21 '18 at 3:56
