[Bug 1381914] Re: Screen Display goes haywire


ndahiya, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any

  the behavior. It was the first time it happened on ubuntu (14.04, I
  had been been using ubuntu 12.04 for almost 2 years prior with same
  hardware) but I have seen this happen on Fedora 20 with a 2 monitor
  setup multiple times.

  I have a camera photo of what the screens looked like but the
  "printscreen" option on the keyboard failed to save the data on the
