Bug Description


I have a problem with Ubuntu 12.04 on my Dell Studio XPS 1647 laptop.

After closing a laptop and getting ubuntu to suspend and then resume I cant get back to xorg session. First screen display is scrambled in the right down corner and second (after I figured out to kill gnome-screensaver) display is shifted so I see only upper right corner (where the login name is displayed normally) but shifted to the left side of the screen. See photo again.

 I hope attached photos clarify the problem.

I attached apport report and willing to do all the necessary debugging work. This problem is really annoying since I have to reboot laptop every time I get it suspended.

Thanks for help.
