Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-intel

After connecting my Samsung NC10 with an external Monitor or Beamer (VGA) and starting xrandr or the gnome-display-properties Ubuntu crashes totaly. Both screens getting black, but on the beamer appears the mouse curser (but can't be moved).

Only press and hold the power button shuts down the netbook. ALT+Sys+K doesn't work for me.

I am using an current 9.10.

Hi!

I found out that this problem only appears when Ubuntu tries to use both screens with different screen resolutions.

Workaround: Install aRandr and make layouts (profiles) where your beamer and Netbook have to use the same screen resoltution.

After plugin VGA saved profiles (.sh files) and enjoy :-)

I'm having the same problem, these are really hard lock ups. Using identical resolutions is not an option for me, since laptop screen and flat panel are completely differently sized.
