Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

Thanks for trying to help but I'm afraid I'm still having trouble. I tried plugging in an HDMI monitor and now I get no output on either screen even when booting in compatiblity mode with nomodeset added to the boot args. What laptops work best with Mint? Are there any currently available laptops th...

Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

While I can now boot using nomodeset, X fails to load and I get the mssage "no screens found" and am dropped to a command line prompt. Is there a way to get X to use some sort of compatiblity mode so that I can get the GUI up to allow me to install Mint on the laptop hard drive? Or is ther...

Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

I found another article that described how to turn off secure boot. You have to disable all of the keys rather than just turning off the Secure Boot option directly. That along with nomodeset got me past the blank screen although X won't come up and I end up in a console prompt. I'll try installing ...

Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

Thanks. I guess I'm out of luck in that case because it doesn't seem to be possible to disable the Secure Boot option in my BIOS. That line can't even be highlighted. Is there some laptop that I can buy that supports Mint without having to worry about video drivers that aren't supported by the kerne...

Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

I'm not sure if I have the same problem as the OP as I don't hear the Mint startup sounds or any indication that the system is doing anything after selecting the kernel to boot in the Grub menu. One thing I'm not sure of is what BIOS settings I need to change. All I've done so far is turn off the Wi...

Re: Asus UX302LA Zenbook doesn't recognize it's own screen?

I just bought an Asus UX302LA and am not even able to get a Mint 16 USB stick that I created a while back to boot even using nomodeset. I still get a completely blank screen after selecting the kernel from the Grub boot menu. I see from the messages in this thread that others have had success with t...
