I have HP envy dv6 laptop. I've been having sudden, random reboots on every kernel > 3.9. The screen suddenly goes black and laptop restarts. I'm having this issue on every kernel version after 3.9, even on 3.10 (this should be the LTS kernel).
The problem I have is this. I have a DELL laptop with 2 GPU, an Intel integrated and high performance of AMD radeon HD a 6470m, but ubuntu does not detect HOWEVER as I should and make sure you have the 2 active at the same time which proboca overheating equipment and the battery lasts less than 40 minutes. I installed the catalyst drivers but the system becomes unstable and heated haun more.
I own the laptop in my sig, equipped with an integrated Intel GMA X4500HD (GM45 Chipset) with 256MB of shared memory. According to the manufacturer specs, the chip name is X4500HD, however according to Intel the GM45 uses 4500MHD, which probably is NOT the same.See here.My setup:- Intel Core2Duo P8700 2.53GHz running on ondemand governor with no problems.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 last night and noticed that it didn't pick up my graphics drivers and just displays at 1024x768 (In windows it's 1366x768 ). My question is how do I fix it, if that's possible?:confused:
Ubuntu 9.10 x64
Adapter Type: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator
Chip Type: Intel Graphics Media Acclerarator HD (Core i3)
