Question Notebook & GeForce 8400M G

Hi everyone!

I just installed Debian 4.0 on my new Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook E 8410 using NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G chipset.

After installing the new driver (100.XXX), X is now able to detect the screen. But unfortunately the screen keeps black and kinda "freezes" (well, just nothing else is done...).

How can I LinuX bring to start Gnome/KDE/Xface/... ???

I'd love to use my machine under LinuX, not under the legal virus

Regards,
gambacherkalben[stein]

OK. I had a closer at these pages:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=92953
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=72490
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=58498
http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678

Still I cannot find any solutions for my problem.
I'm useing Debian 4.0 (kernel: 2.6.18-4-686).

It's kinda confusing. Even "RescueCD" doesn't work on this machine.

This notebook has just been released on market!!!

EDIT: I even tried idle=poll - didn't work. And probably I have no chance to get my nvidia-bug-report.log from my notebook to my PC in order to post it to this thread. arrrgh!

To make sure this log file includes as much relevant information as possible, please start the X server with `startx -- -logverbose 6` and run `nvidia-bug-report.sh` after the problem has occurred. If X can not be started or the machine appears to have crashed, please check if you can log into it remotely (e.g. via ssh or telnet) and run `nvidia-bug-report.sh` in the remote shell, if possible. If the machine can not be logged into remotely, please run the bug report script with X running (this will ensure that data points only available when the device is initialized, such as the VBIOS revision, are captured in the log file). All requests for assistance from NVIDIA must include the bug report, per the instructions above.

hmm, you have a Santa Rosa notebook, right? Then Debian 4.0 with 2.6.18 is too old...

If you're stuck, because your screen "goes black" before you can do something: try to boot with "single" and revert the driver in xorg.conf
back to "vesa" or "nv" until you have a way to ssh the laptop...

Lightbulb Re: Notebook & GeForce 8400M G

Thx, chunkey!!

@AaronP: Finally, I was able to get X.org rudimentary to work with chunkey's method. But it is still annoying. Shall I download a new kernel? Would this fix at least a bit this issue??
As you wanted here's nvidia-bug-report. Users like me are really annoying...

Thank you so much for your assistance (both!!)!!

I'm afraid it's a BIOS Bug.

But please, generate another nvidia-bug-report.log:
1. log in from another PC to your laptop
2. set the "nvidia" driver in xorg.conf...
3. Start X again...
(now on the remote pc:) run nvidia-bug-report.sh, and revert back to the vesa driver...
4. restart your laptop and post the new nvidia-bug-report.log

Well, would it be the same if I did it on the labtop and switch to antother virtual console??
Otherwise it might become difficult to connect the two PCs...

I flashed the BIOS with the following version:

FSC_BIOS_Flash__ISO_CD_Image____LIFEBOOK_E8410__Su preme__1_07__1014161

No other version is available.
