Strange screen problem on HP 2133 (SOLVED)

Postby ebaut on Sun May 31, 2009 4:35 pm

good midnight :)

I have a strange problem on my netbook HP mini 2133 with Linux Mint 7 main edition
when I start a live-usb or install from usb, I have good resolution (as in preinstalled SLED 10) 1024x600
after few reboting after installing.. I saw only upper-left part of my workspace =\
and I can poke workspace in "darkzone", but I doesn`t see this.
I tried to install via chrome 9 driver. nothing happened

I use mint 7 main edition, no mint4win
