Re: Latest kernel gives blank screen when it boots



I faced the same problem for 3 days until I found your thread here. Tried to setup an old laptop with Intel graphics with Debian testing 9.6. The laptop was running Lubuntu for years happily. inxi reports it only as "Intel Core Processors Integrated Graphics".

I could only avoid the black screen on boot after grub with "nomodeset" but then was stuck with 1024x768 px and xrandr reported my display only as "default".

Maybe to help someone else finding this, here is a list of things I tried WITHOUT ANY effect:

- Install: firmware-linux-nonfree firmware-misc-nonfree xserver-xorg-video-intel
- CONFIG_FRAMEBUFFER_CONSOLE=y was already active

Setting various grub parameters:

- i915.preliminary_hw_support=1
- i915.modeset=1 video=LVDS-1:d"
- intel_idle.max_cstate=1
- acpi_osi=linux
- acpi_backlight=vendor
...

I downgrade to 4.9.0-8 from stable cause nothing in between was offered. How can I downgrade to only 4.18.0-2? Or have you tried 4.19 in the meantime?

Best regards,
Martin
