Title: HP/Compaq ASUS A8N-LA Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit Installer Display Problem Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: Hi, I want to report an annoying bug of Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit's software installer. If I try to use the mainboard's integrated graphics, the Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS 32-bit's software installer will go blank before it reaches the first screen of the installation program. When this happens, the computer has not crashed because the keyboard does still respond. I can workaround this problem by using PCI or PCI Express graphics card during installation. Once Ubuntu is installed, the computer's screen will go blank when I try to start Ubuntu with the open source NVIDIA display device driver. If I use a standalone NVIDIA graphics to install NVIDIA binary (closed source) display device driver, Ubuntu will boot fine (screen will be fine) with the integrated graphics. It looks like the open source NVIDIA display device driver is not recognizing the integrated graphics properly since Ubuntu works fine with the NVIDIA binary display device driver. This issue has existed with Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS 32-bit as well. Please note that the system configuration submitted does say that the system is using NVIDIA binary display device driver. I just had to do this just to submit the bug report. The issue happens only when the open source NVIDIA display device driver is used. Another thing to note is that the mainboard used in question, ASUS A8N-LA was manufactured by ASUS specifically for HP/Compaq. This mainboard's information is not available on ASUS website. HP has some technical information about the mainboard on their website. System Configuration: - ASUS A8N-LA mainboard * Rev. 3.11 9/19/2006 (Final release) * NVIDIA GeForce 6150LE and nForce 430 MCP - AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ - 3GB DDR400 DDR SDRAM (1GB X 2 modules and 512MB X 2 modules) * Operates in dual channel mode - GeForce 8400GS 512MB PCI Express x16 graphics card * Only used to temporarily workaround the bug.
