looking for a solution I find some advices like writing i915.modeset=0 drive=intel/i915.modeset=1/nomodeset/ nomodeset acpi=off after "quiet splash" etc., but they didn't work. The problem is that I'm really a noob so I don't really know what the hell I'm doing...
could someone help me?
I tried all of those too but in the end...what worked was on my Laptop I hit the blue "Fn" key plus my "right arrow" to increase my screen brightness. This was a pain. Then I installed Mint 15 KDE and I didn't have to do that anymore. It worked properly straight away.
