    Exclamation no light with acer aspire 7715z[no new linux version works]


    I have problem with the latest linux distors, there is no light on the screen

    its a acer sprite 7715z, i had ubuntu 9.04/10.04 and opensuse(dont remeber what version it was) on it before and it worked fine

    I tryed the latest versions of opensuse, debian, fedora & ubuntu and it no light on the screen after it booted the system

    i searched on google a while and i found some bug reports about same problem:

    so what can i do? is it something with the kernel? How can i fix this?

    I seriously need linux for my job.. (We are switching from windows to linux and i have to get used to it so i can keep my job)

    Thanks in advance!!

    What do you mean by no light on the screen? Can you not see anything? black screen? More details as to what happens and exactly the circumstance.

    If earlier versions of Linux worked, why not use one that worked?

    Did you install Arch from an installation CD? You were able to do this successfully and see steps on the screen? Did you complete the install, reboot and install xorg?

    Run this command from Arch or from the CD if you can't boot Arch to get info: lspci | grep -i vga.

    Someone may be able to help. More details on what you did or what happened would be useful.

    Live CD

    Try out a live CD, and check. If it fails, then maybe the distros don't yet support the HW.

    After turning the machine edit and add to the GRUB kernel line:

    init="/usr/sbin/setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00" acpi_osi=Linux
