qwach, thank you for testing the latest mainline kernel. Just to
clarify, as per https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux the standard
Precise kernel is currently 3.2.0-51.77. Could you please specify where
where you got the 3.5.x kernel from for Precise, a backports repository?

  8086:0166 [Lenovo G580 2189] Black screen without "nomodeset" boot

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I recently updated the firmware on my Lenovo G580 (Bluetooth being
  broken with the old one), and now I can only boot 13.04 (installed as
  well as Live USB) with nomodeset enabled. Even with that option, I
  seem to be stuck on software rendering, can't change the screen
  brightness, and trying to switch to a VT only freezes the system on a
  solid gray screen, but I guess that's something for separate bug
  reports. GPUs: Intel HD 4000; Nvidia GT 635M (Optimus, normally
