 If yours has an NVIDIA sticker, then I'd give the nvidia driver a try.
 What does 'pciconf -vl | grep vga' show?
 In my ASUS notebook, the graphics is Intel Integrated HD and the pciconf
 -vl gives a PCIID for vgapci0 that matches the HM55 (0x00468086), so I thin=
 k the
 intel driver will need to support HM55 for this to work.  I'm still
 patiently using vesa.
