[Bug 1531578] Re: i915. graphics messed, only slide of the screen working


Kernel version 4.4.0-040400rc8-generic works.

I also tested kernel 4.3.0-5-generic from repository. Bug didn't trigger but it automatically forced lower resolution (640x480).

  i915. graphics messed, only slide of the screen working

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Computer: EEEpc 701
  VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 04)
  Native resolution 800x480

  Upgraded to the Xenial.

  Happens every time when using  Linux 4.3.0-2. As soon as X starts over
  half of the screen is messed (left side of the screen). Switching to
  the virtual terminal doesn't help, same area is messed in text mode.

  Couple of workarounds:
  *Booting Linux 4.2.0-22-generic
  *Connecting external (VGA) monitor. Now both (internal+external) are working. External can be disconnected then.
  *From grub boot to recovery (kernel 4.3.0-2), then resume. Now screen is working, but resolution is 640x480.
