I just made a fresh new install with OS 13.1 GNOME x86 on a Gateway nv51m with a Intel GMA 4500MHD GPU… I had to add the “nomodeset=0” boot option in order to have a working screen.
This prblem I also had it with OS 12.3 but could fix it with a workaround but I dont find it now.
michelle@linux-x41i:~> uname -a
Linux linux-x41i.site 3.11.6-4-default #1 SMP Wed Oct 30 18:04:56 UTC 2013 (e6d4a27) i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I used the GNOME Live installer and checked the mdsum which was fine and It seems that the screen settings does not recognize the video as it appears to be “Unknown” in the control center and I only have the 1024 x 768 option with 4:1 size.
Can anyone give me a hint on how to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance

I tried the suggestion on the other thread and it seems to work. My display resolution is not blurry anymore and the characters look very nice now
Thanks in advance
