Black screen after upgrading from Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.10

After upgrading my Ubuntu from 10.04 to 10.10 i got only black screens or weird distorted graphics on my Acer Tracelmate 220 laptop with Intel 830 graphics card.

The solution for this misery:

  1. Boot in recovery mode with root console and log on
  2. change the xorg.conf settings to "vesa" ("enable VESA":
  3. Then follow those instructions and set the "nomodesetup" for grub:

This gave me back X11 and Gnome - finally! :D

.oO(It cost me only several hours to fix the da** problem...)
