[Bug 1462611] Re: monitor off after grub


Markus Mitsch, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu
better. As per
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P7P55D_LE/HelpDesk_Download/ an update
to your computer's buggy and outdated BIOS is available (2101). If you
update to this following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate
does it change anything?

If it doesn't, could you please both specify what happened, and provide the output of the following terminal command:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

For more on BIOS updates and linux, please see

Please note your current BIOS is already in the Bug Description, so
posting this on the old BIOS would not be helpful. As well, you don't
have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, and the information above is provided, then
please mark this report Status Confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.

  it completely off and on again. if i do this early enough i can see
  the glowing kubuntu logo. i tried various "video=" kernel options
  among other things but with no success. my laptop has an simliar
