It’s just a video driver!


GuinnessBeerDear Colleagues at Intel Corporation!

Would it be so hard to release a video driver for my Toshiba Portege M400 that doesn't flicker and restores back to 800x600 almost every time I unlock my laptop? 🙂  It ruins my productivity and lifts my blood pressure every time I start something.

I'll pay a couple of pints of original Irish GUINNESS to the person who fixes it. Thanks!

2nd Part:

My colleague, Levente Nagy came to me and advised to install the internal Toshiba driver pack that Toshiba and Microsoft built together for the internal Microsoft audience. It downgraded my driver from the version of 7.14.10.1322 to 7.14.10.1217 and it solved the problem. The device's name is Mobile Intel(R) 945GM Express Chipset Family. Thanks Levi!

    On which OS 😉 ? I think you have this integrated video: http://www.intel.com/products/chipsets/gma950/index.htm. What about a patched linux driver?
