    Hi everybody,

    i'm using Ubuntu 14.04 64bit with:

    board: gigabyte ga-h67m-ud2h

    CPU: Intel® Core™ i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz × 4

    Graphics: VESA: Intel®Sandybridge Desktop Graphics + Intel(R) Graphics Installer 1.0.5 for Linux*

    You'll find some more details at the end of the post.


    Starting my system without the parameter nomodeset gives me a perfect screen resolution ( 1920x1080 ) , but only for a few seconds.

    After this very short time the system freezes and i can't do anything.

    Starting the system with nomodeset runs without problems, but at a very low resolution of 640x480.

    Using the little trick:

    first starting without nomodeset -> freeze -> reboot

    gives a resolution of 1024x768 without any further problems.

    Of course I want to have a perfect resolution without a freeze, but i have no idea what to do to fix the problem.

    Any suggestions would be nice.


    Thx a lot

    It looks like nobody has any suggestions how to proceed with this issue. Therefore i will reinstall our systems with Suse, because this works fine with any of our hardware.

    You may close this bug.

    Hi - sorry you;ve had thse problems: As I've been explaining to people in other threads, there
    was no update for the graphics driver in this Intel graphics stack release - only video playback
    hardware acceleration and some developer tools, neither of which is implicated in the symptoms
    you are seeing. If you do still want to follow up the bug, you're best off filing it with Ubuntu.
