[Bug 1556362] Re: Graphic display problem


Jonathan Tigner, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu

As per http://support.toshiba.ca/support/isg/center/en/index.asp?p
=PLL20C-00200C an update to your computer's buggy, insecure, and
outdated BIOS is available (2.20). If you update to this following
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BIOSUpdate does it change anything?

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.

Also, you don't have to create a new bug report.

Once the BIOS is updated, if the problem is still reproducible:
1) Please provide the output of the following terminal command (not perform an apport-collect):
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date
2) Please make a comment specifically advising on if there was an improvement or not.
3) Please mark this report Status Confirmed.

If it's not reproducible, please mark this as Invalid.

Thank you for your understanding.

  Graphic display problem

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I would like to report a problem with my video driver.  While using
  both LibreOffice Writer  and Firefox, Ihave had occasions when the
  screen went wonky with horizontal lines running across such that the
  screen was not readable.  The problem seems to correct itself if I
  switch programs using the Launcher and then return to the problem

  I am running 32 bit Ubuntu15.10 on a Toshiba NB200 with a Intel® Atom™
  CPU N280 @ 1.66GHz × 2 processer,, 2 gig of RAM and Intel® 945GME
  x86/MMX/SSE2 graphics.
