Blank Screen after upgrading Archlinux (intel GMA 945)

After upgrading archlinux on Acer Aspire 3680 that using GMA 945 Intel VGA, when reboot, at boot time, after UDEV process, i stuck on black screen. Without any success to boot. After i check on archlinux wiki -> i forgot to add KMS (kernel mode settings).

So to solve this, when boot into grub, click e, then insert nomodeset on kernel line, like this pic below: (for grub2 the methods same add nomodeset on line kernel too).

This for booting without intel vga, when login to archlinux, login to user root, then add Module="i915" on /etc/mkinitcpio.conf

#nano /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
add Module="i915" like this

Ctrl + X to save, then type

#mkinitcpio -p linux

Blank screen is gone now on Acer Aspire 3680 GMA 945.
