Re: intel hd 3000 chipset
I have the same video card on a new HP g6. I'm new to Fedora (16), I switched because it was the only distro that would actually work on the laptop, I had to run it with 'acpi=off' for the screen to look good, but then the battery management dies.
Running it with 'nomodeset' makes the laptop usable, but the resolution of the screen is all messed up. In my old laptop, you would install the driver at this point and everything would work, but I can't seem to find a driver for this card and it somehow clashes with acpi.
It is now working, by using the boot option 'pci=noacpi'. Thanks to fenris02 at the #fedora channel in freenode for pointing me in the right direction.
