Wake screen scrambled unintelligible w/ no mouse

Postby buttlebrain on Sat Dec 28, 2013 10:21 pm

Can't think of a proper category for this, so here it is in this group. Running Mint 14 Nadia on a Dell Latitude D820 laptop. Everytime I put the machine to sleep and then wake it up, the screen is on with a strange pattern of colors but nothing intelligible. Sometimes the mouse pointer appears, but is unmovable. I've tried waiting for several minutes to see if anything changes, but nothing happens. I always end up rebooting to clear the problem. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Whenever I work on a laptop, I pull the battery 1st, then plug the power cord in. I've seen totally dead laptops work fine without a battery. I'm just saying; you should elliminate that first. If it works ok, buy a new battery or don't use one at all.
