My laptop, a 2012 vintage Acer with HD3000, has had no such issues under 
-CURRENT. Though the LCD started to display colored vertical lines last year; 
replacing it with a new LCD resolved it.

Can you describe the problem further? Maybe a picture of the distortion you 
describe? What apps are you trying to run. Can you post dmesg, kldstat, and 
Xorg.0 outputs? What does your xorg.conf look like?

Apologies for any typos and autocorrect.
Also, this old phone only supports top post. Apologies.

Subject: CURRENT and HD3000: i915 failing badly

Hello out there,

I got my hands on a Fujitsu Lifebook E751 manufactured 8/2011. The CPU is
a Core i5-2520M, 4GB RAM and QM67 chipset, with an integrated HD3000 graphics.
The display is on this model a Non-Glare HD+ display (1920x1080, I guess).

Neither FreeBSD 11.1-RELENG from USB flash nor 12-CURRENT as of 25th January
work with the display: after the kernel has booted, I see only distortion and
garbage on the screen. I checked with a recent Ubuntu and the Linux system is
capable of showing nice and fancy graphics - but FreeBSD seems to be incapable
to produce any serious console picture on this 6+ years old HD3000 chipset.
What is the special case on this HD3000 and why isn't FreeBSD supporting it
properly - or am I doing something wrong?

Kind regards,
