    Default Start Up Problem

    I've used BT5 before and all has been fine up to now, installed on a new laptop HP 1180SA and when I try booting BT5 R1 it loads the verbose text in the BT5 bit and then nothing, the screen goes black but if I plug VGA in then out then in the out then in then out then it finally kicks the screen to work, is this a bug? I think it has a Intel HD 3000 graphics card, but i've tried i915.modeset=1 and still no luck
    Any Ideas?

    I haven't encountered this with BT5 yet but I was doing a Ubuntu intall on a i915 machine recently and needed to use "nosplash nomodeset" initially. You could try that...

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
