Multidistro issue

Hello everyone,


i tried to install multiple distros, from Ubuntu to openSuse and Arch. The problem i have is that the screen is very dark ie. i cant see anything (it appears that the backlight isnt turning on).

I have a g62-a70sm notebook / ati card with an intel hd integrated video. The only way i can get it to work is to use a i915.modeset=0 which makes boot take forever which results in unrecognized screen, video and random crashes in Xorg.


Is there a way to move to fixed mode graphics? Any help will be more than appreciated.
