[Bug 1245424] Re: [Acer Aspire V5-573G] Black screen on boot due to low brightness setting


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1239183 ***

Mario Kleinsasser, given how your lspci.txt is verbatim with https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1239183 I'm going to mark a duplicate. However, please do not post any further comments until you have updated your BIOS to the latest as per Acer (v2.22) and posted the following with the new BIOS:
sudo dmidecode -s bios-version && sudo dmidecode -s bios-release-date

  [Acer Aspire V5-573G] Black screen on boot due to low brightness

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On boot, following the bios screen and grub screen to choose ubuntu,
  the screen goes completely black, but the fn-arrow keys can be used to
  turn the backlight up. This is on Asus Aspire V5 573G. I believe this
  is a duplicate of bug #1224415 but I was told explicitly to file a
  separate bug
