    I am also using a live usb and nothing seemed different to me. I solved my problem according to @p0cTeam 's solution.

    Just wanted to say this fixed my problem on an Acer Aspire 5742 as well. I found another thread that had a solution that worked as well. The suggestion was to edit /etc/default/grub/grub and change this line:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text splash vga=791

    to this

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text splash vga=791 i915.modeset=1

    ..thx..

    Two questions?

    1. Does this work on the 64bit version Gnome
    2. Can one change the screen resolution after applying this fix, even if the BT is now working, it looks a bit odd on my laptop (think it has something to do with resolution, purhaps 1024x768)
    Try this
    It works for me

    (usb live)
    edit this line on the boot menu

    (before)
    vga=791 --

    (after)
    vga=791 i195.modeset=1

    ok so this describes what is going on with my BT R2 and R3 live USB's but i have a few questions before i go all crazy editing my GRUB and such.

    im currently dual booting Kubuntu and Windows 7......i want to tri-boot and eventually choose between BT5 (KDE) and Kubuntu.
    when this says to edit the GRUB the way it is written makes it sound like there is a GRUB on the live DVD/USB.......is that the case?
    if that is not the case would the GRUB edit for my dual boot computer be just the same as described above and not effect the booting of the other operating systems?

    I found an easy way to solve this error permanently for my usb drive.

    If you create your live cd or live usb by using unetbootin then open file syslinux.cfg with notepad or anything you have to edit it.

    Find the line append initrd=/ubninit file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper text splash vga=791--

    And add quiet i915.modeset=1 to it. You may add xforcevesa noapic noapci nosplash irqpoll as this threat talks about, too. I think so.

    So it should be append initrd=/ubninit file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper quiet splash i915.modeset=1 vga=791-- to me.

    Then, save the file and reboot your computer.
