Greetings,

I just purchased a new light weight laptop with an i3-2367M CPU and it includes Intel HD 3000 graphics chip. Everything seems to work good, wireless, keyboard, trackpad, sound, Gig enet port, except for the HD 3000 graphics chip. I have no external monitor support via the VGA port. In addition GNOME reported some graphics issues on startup and I have the old school interface (I am not sure what the new menu is called). I did google around and found this post on fedoraforums.org.

Thus I added pci=noacpi to the boot options in grub. This actually made things worse for me because now my USB keyboard and USB mouse via USB KVM stopped working. I should mention this is x86_64 version of Fedora 16. Today I did a yum update and got all the latest updates, uname -a output is:

Linux tvrdm1lappy 3.1.5-2.fc16.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Dec 12 21:25:51 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Now keyboard and mouse work but computer is sluggish especially the mouse. The laptop keys for sound up/sound down work but none of the display keys works like brightness up/brightness down or the external display key.

Thanks for the help.

Here is the output from LSPCI:

For the sluggishness, you can run "top" and see if there's a process eating away at the CPU

You might want to file a bug report.

I solved my problem by simply upgrading the bios, now everything works!!! After months of using a tiny 11.6" screen Fedora has never looked better than on 23" LG flat panel. As suggested I did file a bug report which I will close.
