I'm following the tutorial following tutorial to get my Intel D2700DC motherboard's graphics working: http://daily.siebler.eu/2012/06/ubuntu-12-04-driver-for-intel-cedarview-atom-n2000-und-d2000-serie/

When I boot I'm getting a blank screen. I followed the tutorial and read all the comments. I've also tried:

Install gdm and use this instead of lightdm (ubuntu default)

sudo apt-get install gdm

Remove previous pae kernel: http://www.liberiangeek.net/2011/11/remove-old-kernels-in-ubuntu-11-10-oneiric-ocelot/

Reboot before adding cedarview packages.

Have tried with and without the video=LVDS-1:d to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT variable in /etc/default/grub.

I still get a blank screen. I am plugged into a HD screen through the HDMI and have tried the DVI connector also. I can see the grub menu, then a little of the loading and then 'No signal'. I can still ssh into the box though so it is logging in.

The driver is available in the Ubuntu repositories, so no need to add PPAs. You can remove the PPA and the installed packages with

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

sudo ppa-purge ppa:sarvatt/cedarview

Then install the driver.

Hope it works.
