[Mint 3 Cinnamon] Black screen on boot without nomodeset

Postby Damgood on Tue Mar 05, 2013 6:28 am

Hello. I have an Asus Zenbook ux32vd notebook and I can't install/use linux mint properly.

Notebook Info:
  • Name: Asus Zenbook ux32vd
  • Graphics: Intel HD 4000 & nvidia gt 620m with Optimus
  • HDD: 500 GB HDD & 32GB SSD
    Mint 13 is installed on SSD.
  • On boot, if I don't use the nomodeset kernel boot parameter I get blackscreen
  • When I use nomoset to boot, the graphics experience is poor because of the used driver.
    Driver: VESA: Intel® Sandybridge/Ivybridge Graphics
    Experience: Fallback

  • How I can get out of fallback mode and use a proper graphics drive and boot without nomodeset with proper graphics?

When I tried to install mint 14 it doesn't boot even when I use nomodeset kernel boot parameter.
