first i must say i'm a total newbie for bios.. (you people must be thinking like sigh another one) i'm sorry
but i have a acer aspire 9813WKMI with phoenix bios
now it says vga bios verion is: nVIDEA G73 E463 126.96.36.199.48
but my vga is Nvidia geforce 7600 go for notebook
bios verion : v2.14
is this correct ????
the problem is:
when i install windows 7 or vista it all works fine but if i want to start the advanced startup options (that's f8 menu wile booting right after the bios splash screen).
it wont show but i know it's there because i can choose safe mode, i only need to guess where in the menu is hidden.
so i have the menu but in black screen..
when i install ubuntu 11.10 everything works fine only but when i login in ubuntu en start the terminal (ctrl+alt+f1 or ctrl+alt+f2 or ctrl+alt+f6) the screen is black and it shows me nothing.
it also says something about the vga on the install, when pressing f6 on loading of install you get a list that checks hardware like audo bluetooth vga but everything says ok except at vga(or video or graphic i can't remember wich one) it says failed
also i dont get the splash screen,
also when i startup to grub (shift holding while booting after the splash screen of bios) it gives me stripes...
so i say it's my vga but as i said i'm a total newbie in bios or what so ever.....
is there someone that can help me i use different forums, but nobody know anything...
please tell me what to do step by step
