[Bug 693273] [NEW] 8086:2a42 [gm45] Ubuntu boots into blank screen


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

Binary package hint: xorg

I have ubuntu live cd.
Whenever I choose the Try Ubuntu option, the screen goes blank and freezes. And the only way to exit is to poweroff my laptop.
This happens not only with ubuntu but also with fedora, opensuse, puppy, knoppix.
The only way to run is to use text mode or vesa mode. But since my laptop has a 15.6inch screen 1024x768 resolution looks ugly.

Amazingly, only ubuntu 9.04 is able to run normally. It even supports my
1366x768 resolution. If it can run then there must be a way to run all
the other versions of ubuntu.

I have reported this bug at
but using ubuntu-bug xserver-xorg-video-intel package
