For some old linux distributions (notably those that ship with intel drivers older than 2.0), some extra steps are required to set a native resolution for the display. As default the native screen resolution of this notebook is 1280×768, but that particular resolution is not to be found in the Video BIOS. To get it working you will need to install the 915resolution program and type in:
915resolution 3c 1280 768
This will then allow you to use the native 1280×768 resolution. However this setting will be forgotten after each boot so you will need a way to automatically run this command at every boot. Fortunately most Linux distributions come with the 915resolution program and include a simple way of achieving this
There were no problems in getting this laptop working when used with an up to date Linux distribution. Always run the latest stable distributions.
Suspend/Resume and Hibernate work flawlessly on this laptop.
