so got my new lenovo W530 up and installed..
graphics going fine.. all looks good.

comes up..  puts a little window up (screen s in 1920x 1080 mode) saying
"your screen is has been configured for 1920 x 1080.. do you want to 
keep this setting?"

well, it's in that mode now so yes I want to keep it..
so click on "yes" and screen goes black and never comes back..
!@#$%^&  why didn't it just leave it alone?

What's the difference between teh 1920 x 1080 (intel_3d) it was using 
to ask the question and the 1920 x 1080 it decide to go to that 
doesn't work? if I run the display wizard it correctly test that mode 
and asks if I want to keep it. if I hit "yes". I'm dead. any idea as 
to what is different about the setting being tested that work and the 
setting that don't work? It is possible the system has actually 
crashed as it doesn't repond to a quick poke of the power button or to 
CTL-ALT-BKSPACE..  if I say 'no' and then turn off the 3d, then it works.

is there something magical about the mode it's testing with that 
allows it to work?
