http://ubuntuforums.org – Alright so I just got my brand new HP Envy 15 in the mail yesterday. Opened it up, checked to make sure the BIOS was up to date (it was, F.06), and installed Ubuntu 9.10. The entire installation goes fine and it reboots. This is where my problems start. First, it will show the white Ubuntu logo in the center of the screen, then the screen just goes black. It seems X is having trouble starting. Sometimes however, with numerous reboots, I can actually reach a desktop. I enable the ATI driver, and reboot. Now with the driver enabled, Ubuntu will ONLY boot in low graphics mode. Is anyone else having these 2 problems with the Envy 15? (Hardware)
