Screen split and wrapped around

Postby SurrexitVere on Wed Jan 30, 2013 5:27 am

I've just made the jump from Ubuntu to LMDE, and seem to be in over my head. I'm on a HP Pavilion g6-2122he, and (among other difficulties), the screen is always split and wrapped around--the right-most sixth of the screen ends up over on the left, putting the battery icon exactly in the lower left corner. I found two other (older) threads on here reporting similar problems, neither with answers.

Here's what I know about my graphics controller:
<<
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device 1841
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 43
Memory at c2000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
Memory at b0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
I/O ports at 4000 [size=64]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
Capabilities: [90] MSI: Enable+ Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit-
Capabilities: [d0] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [a4] PCI Advanced Features
Kernel driver in use: i915

I was relatively new to Linux before I switched over (I liked what I was hearing about LMDE, and didn't want to get overly acclimated to Ubuntu if planning to leave it), so I'm quite ignorant. On the plus side, I follow instructions. It's getting to be a drag avoiding the right edge of the screen, so I'd very much appreciate any help that could be given.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

This issue finally resolved itself when resuming from suspension. All I can hope is that it doesn't occur again, since I don't know what happened last time to make it stop.
