    Default Please head me into the right direction.

    Hello BackTrackers,

    I bought a new laptop some days ago. But I think it's too new
    Every Linux distribution I try fails to boot properly. Near the end of the boot processes my screen just turns black and the laptop doesn't respond to anything.
    I have been using Linux for some years now and normally I can figure it out when I come across something. But in this case even safe modes do not work.
    The (relevant) specs:
    It's an Asus N53SV
    i7-2630QM
    540M

    I think it has something to do with the sandy bridge and the Linux kernel.
    Haven't tried to build my own and newer Linux kernel yet....

    Could someone head me into the right direction?
    Thanks.

    I did some googling for this and several results came up that apply to your laptop and linux. Here's one that seems particularly promising: http://alephractal.wordpress.com/201...3sv-adventure/
