new laptop, msi, 4th generation intel chip ubuntu 13.10 installed. i was able to login, work normally. after a couple of days I got a message 'loading initial ramdisk' on boot screen. reading through the forums, i added to grub cmd:
i915.i915_enable_rc6=1, acpi_osi=Linux (without comma, can't remember which order)
and it worked.
then after a couple of days, i was not able to login again. so i tried different options from http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?pag...tel_i915_power and it worked again.
two days later, i am again not able to login to ubuntu.
previously i had tried to install nvidia drivers (because i have nvidia geforce card). this caused a catastrophe, i had to reinstall ubuntu.
does anyone have ideas on how to solve this problem?
also more importantly why is it happening? why would the options above work, only to fail after a couple of days? laptop model is msi gs70.
note: i have also tried acpi=0, acpi_backlight=vendor, i915.modeset=0, nouveau.modeset=0, nomodeset, video=1280x1024-24@60, video=1:1280x1024-24@60, none of these options worked.
any help/comments would be appreciated.
