S3 resume: no video - Averatec 3300
Last modified: 2007-04-28 12:49:14 UTC
Suse Linux 9.2
Averatec 3300 laptop. Intel 855GM chipset.
Standby goes down fine, but when resuming there is no video. I have tried this
from the console and from X and the same thing happens. Also, I have tried
logging in 'blind' after resuming, but still nothing. I cannot SSH into the
computer after the resume either.
Steps to reproduce:
Get an Averatec 3300 laptop. Put it in standby mode from linux. Resume the PC.
Any luck with:
1. BIOS upgrade.
2. X upgrade, or at least X video driver
3. workarounds in Documentation/power/video.txt?
Please reopen this bug if:
- it is still present in kernel 2.6.16-rc2 and
- you can answer Len's questions.
I have tried all your suggestions. Let me answer them here for you.
First off, there are no available BIOS upgrades for my laptop. I tried a new
video driver for this board, and had the same results. I tried all the
workarounds in Documentation/power/video.txt, and still had the same results.
I just downloaded, compiled and booted into 2.6.16rc2 and when I come back
from S3 with that kernel I can drive, but I can't see. I booted to runlevel 3
and tried init 5 from the console after resuming and got nothing on the
display either. ctrl alt 1 and init 6 rebooted though, so it's just the
If there is anything I can do to help, or any data I can provide, let me know
as I have a good test environment set up now.
Video restore on resume from S3 is a BIOS or video driver issue,
not an ACPI issue. Moving to drivers/video.
