Backlight turned off on Radeon Mobility X600
|Reported by:||leavengood||Owned by:||euan|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
This may be a known problem on some ATI chipsets since I saw euan mention it on another bug, but nonetheless:
When I boot up my IBM ThinkPad Z60m I get a very dark screen. Graphics are there but barely visible so the problem seems to be the backlight. The output from listdev for my display controller is:
device Display controller (VGA compatible controller, VGA controller) [3|0|0] vendor 1002: ATI Technologies Inc device 3150: M24 1P [Radeon Mobility X600]
Attached is my syslog from two boots, with the first boot using the radeon driver and the second using forced VESA mode, which works.
If there is any simple fix or way for me to correct this myself, let me know. I am a developer but certainly not any driver expert, but I'm willing to try.
