"Please note that the NVIDIA 180.51 Linux graphics driver fixed an interaction problem that resulted in corruption of the internal flatpanel's EDID on the Fujitsu Technology Solutions Celsius H270 notebook.

"Using earlier NVIDIA Linux drivers on the Celsius H270 notebook will result in a corrupt EDID, which will persist across reboots. If you encounter this problem on a Celsius H270 notebook, please contact Fujitsu Technology Solutions technical support to correct the EDID.

"NVIDIA and Fujitsu recommend that all Linux Celsius H270 notebook users use NVIDIA Linux graphics drivers 180.51 or later, and that anyone repackaging a 180.xx NVIDIA Linux graphics driver upgrade to 180.51."
