Can you attach the X log from the startup?
Comment 4 David Wilson 2008-01-13 19:03:50 EST
Unfortunately not. The 755 was a loan system for testing and I no longer have
access to it.

If and when we start buying Optiplex 755 systems I will attempt to reproduce the
problem (although we tend to get systems with the optional ATI video card so are
unlikely to be directly affected).
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-14 08:24:59 EST
OK, in meanwhile I have no other choice than to close this bug as
INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Please, reopen, if you have more information about this issue
and the way how to reproduce it.
