Black screen problem on MSI Wind U100

(1/2) > >>

Thanks for your replies.
I'm going away for a few weeks so will have to pick up on this again when I get back.

Write cache errors are on /dev/sdb. Not /dev/sda which is the internal hard drive .

Intel 945 Graphics chip using the intel driver seems OK to me in INXI report I am looking at.

--- Quote --- Finally I tried adding "radeon.modeset=0" (which I'd seen recommended somewhere) and that worked.

No ati chip in graphics so Not sure why that worked.  So. Referring to the AntiX forum where something kind of similar, happened. But they had X. But specs are same as Yours.


I'm running SaliX Slackware 14.1 Fluxbox on one of my netbooks.

Mine is a N270 Atom CPU while yours is a N280 Atom CPU. Graphics chip looks the same as your netbook.

So putting yours to sleep with 2gig of ram with 2gig of swap should not have hurt anything.
I am just breaking all this down so to get all the ducks in a row so other members can reply intelligently.

I am busy right now. Cracking a password protected .rar which will take me a long while.

Edit: Oh yeah. Here is the screen shot I took of the downloaded pdf that Klinux uploaded. Saves some time.

Guess I would do this from what I saw in a forum .

Boot on a LiveCD or LiveUSB and to try "testdisk" package. Maybe your hdd s screwed up . Don t know , Hopefully it isn t .

This link might help you mate ;


If this has good results then it s something else .

Also , a  lspci command in Terminal will help . Might be something else as stated above .

Okay, inxi -F screenshot attached.

Not sure why it's showing cache data failures. Is that a problem?

[attachment deleted by admin]

Post results from inxi -F in Terminal , someone will be able to give you a hand .
