AMD A8-7680 Ubuntu

Hi,

 

I am trying to build a computer with the following hardware:

 

MOBO: ASUS A68HM-Plus

CPU: AMD A8-7680

RAM: 16GB (2x8 GB) Patriot Viper 3, DDR3 1600 MHz

DISPLAY: LG 25UM58

SSD: SAMSUNG 1TB


I had problems to make it working with Ubuntu 18.04 so I moved back to 16.04. The first think I had to face was the blank screen at login, so I added "nomodeset" to Grub as suggested by several blog entries. Then, once the system is up and running, from terminal I checked the video driver in use by using the command  lshw -c video  but there is no  "driver=" at "configuration:" entry. Then I also used  lspci -nnk | grep -i vga -A3  and indeed amdgpu was listed in "Kernel modules:"  but no entry for "Kernel driver in use:". The amdgpu driver should be pre-installed in Ubuntu 16.04+ but I tried also to reinstall: nothing changed. As result, the video is only at 1024x768.

 

Thank you
