I have done all of the above.
I have tried 3 drivers. The first one I used was the 1st one on the
list when I clicked on the additional drivers icon. Then I tried the
second on the list which was labeled "post release". Finally I tried
the nouveau drivers.
The HP is a standard vga connection and the Hannspree is hdmi. I was
able to set both at 1920x1080 60hz using 10.04.
Right now 12.04 is unusable. When I boot to it I get a message that
there is no usable stored configuration and the HP has a black screen
and the Hannspree is very low res with no mouse cursor.
At this point I want to reinstall 12.04. I boot from the install cd and
it sees that 10.04 and 12.04 are installed. (note they are on separate
HD's). I choose the option to format and install. It says everything
will be replaced and then asks if I want to continue. Maybe I am being
overly cautious, but at this point I canceled because I want to be sure
if I click continue I will be offered the clear option to install on the
12.04 disk. Is this the case?
