[ubuntu] Screen is Fully Dimmed During Bootup

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – After fresh 12.04 install my screen was stuck at 1024X768 and Unity only worked in 2D. I fixed those problems by a simple grub edit: 1. Open Terminal and type: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub 2. a text editor will open with the grub configuration file. Near the top of that file you will see something very similar to this: GRUB_DEFAULT=0 #GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=10GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" 3. add your custom boot options (Hardware)
