Debian Multimedia :: Screen Turning To Black After Suspending

Oct 20, 2015

I have a problem with my computer running debian testing with kde. When after a while I'm away form keyboard my screen turn off for power saving, but I cannot in any way turn it on again.

I tried moving mouse, pressing some key, Ctrl + Alt + Del, Ctrl + Alt + BackSpace, Ctrl + Alt + Esc, and also Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/ecc.. No way. I had to reset my computer every time.

Debian Hardware :: Black Screen After Suspending Jessie

Aug 22, 2015

I can't suspend my laptop because after suspending the system and pressing the power button I only get a black screen. As Debian wiki suggests, if CapsLock LED works the system is still running, which is not my case. I don't know why the system doesn't get back control.

No matter if I press Fn+Sleep keys, go to the Xfce menu, or type:

Code: Select all$ pm-suspend
$ systemctl suspend

Anyhow I get the same result.

I've already followed some other posts but they didn't solve my problem:

Upgrade/update ruined suspend/hibernate in Jessie
Debian 8 resume issue (ATI card)

It's tough to debug since I need to restart the laptop everytime I try.

Debian Multimedia :: Iceweasel Black Screen When Playing Videos

Sep 18, 2015

What I mean by black screen is that whenever I view a video or if there is video content anywhere on the page, my whole monitor goes black for around 3 seconds then plays the video content.

I am running Jessie 8.2 by the way.

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Black Screen With Cursor After Upgrade

Oct 25, 2015

Yesterday I done an upgrade with apt and since that time whenever I boot up I am presented with only a blank screen and an unresponsive cursor. I cannot switch console using Ctl+Alt+F*. The only thing I can do is Alt+SysRq+(R,E,I,S) which kills gdm3 and gets me back to the console.

* I can get into Xorg fine via the startx command
* As a temporary fix, if I enable automatic login (via /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf) then gdm3 works.

But I can't get the normal authenticated login screen to work.

Output of journalctl for a failed attempt at running gdm3 with verbose debugging enabled:

Code: Select allOct 25 01:24:43 [hostname-removed] systemd[1]: Starting GNOME Display Manager...
Oct 25 01:24:43 [hostname-removed] systemd[1]: Started GNOME Display Manager.
Oct 25 01:24:43 [hostname-removed] gdm3[15863]: Enabling debugging

Oct 25 01:24:43 [hostname-removed] gdm3[15863]: Successfully connected to D-Bus

[Code] ....

One other thing worth noting, before upgrading yesterday, I changed mirrors and accidentally pasted in "stable" into /etc/apt/sources.list. So basically I did an initial upgrade, realised my mistake, switched back to testing (which I was on before) and done another upgrade, which is when I noticed this problem.

Debian Multimedia :: Login Screen (GNOME) Stays Black

Apr 7, 2016

After applying upgrades to debian 8.2 on a lenovo yoga3 notebook and a reboot I am not able to login into my GNOME desktop. The login screen stays black. If I press the power button to suspend I can see the login screen with default background for ~1 second before it turns black again. What can I do to fix this issue? Is there a way to login via terminal and do a rollback? Can I use my home folder an personal settings if i reinstall debian and keep the /home partition?

Debian Multimedia :: X Broken After Update - Screen Remains Black

Dec 20, 2010

So I'm pretty awful at keeping Debian up to date, I guess. I'm using cron-apt to fetch updates every night, then apply them whenever I get around to it. Well, I neglected that last part for a month or two, and after some routine downtime to clear the case of dust, I decided it was time to upgrade. So I ran the command, everything checked out fine, and I was on my merry way. Until a half-hour ago when I accidentally shutdown the computer (I use the same zsh prompt on each computer, so I got them confused.) I turned it back on, only to be greeted with a black screen after all the services started up.

Everything works: ircd, MPD, etc. EXCEPT, of course, X. At first I thought the update broke SLIM, but after checking htop and doing a killall slim, it doesn't appear to be running (the screen remains black.) I hit Control-Alt-f2 to get to get back to a terminal, then tried doing startx, which freezes the computer entirely. All the network services stop, I can't SSH in, etc. It's dead. If I'm not mistaken, Xorg.0.log should say something, but I'm not a huge expert on it. The last line isn't an error, I can tell you that. So what's the deal here? apt-get remove xorg and start over?

Debian Multimedia :: Screen Remains Black After Sleep Mode

Feb 20, 2011

I recently came to Debian. As I have an ati card, I tried the proprietary drivers first, but then came back to radeon (open-source). In the process, I think I may have broke my xorg.conf . Sometimes, when the monitor goes into sleep mode, when I came back, the screen remains black (sometimes I see just the cursor).

Here is my xorg.conf
# NOXORGCONFEXISTED: No configuration file existed when this backup was created.

Also, I have lots of backups in my X11 folder, like xorg.conf.fglrx-3, xorg.conf.original-1, or backup.xorg.conf. Is it safe to remove them? What should I do about the main xorg.conf?

Ubuntu :: Natty Occasionally Shows Scary Black Text And Freezes Instead Of Suspending

Sep 1, 2011

I installed 11.04 on a t420 Thinkpad, and sometimes it suspends normally, but sometimes it cuts to a black screen with white text (attached) and won't finish suspending, making me do a hard reboot.

I tried to fix it by using s2ram, but that did not solve my problem.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Black Screen On Exiting Full Screen Games?

Jul 18, 2010

OpenSuse 11.3 with nVidia drivers.I have the screen working fine though it only runs in 1600x1200@75 using the nVidia driver (GTX260 card).When I play a game in full screen mode all seems OK but when I exit the game then I just get the mouse pointer on a black screen.There must be something present since the cursor changes as I move it, normal pointer -> hand over a link etc. It's just that black on black isn't very readable.

Ubuntu :: Lock Screen When Suspending Or Hibernating?

Dec 8, 2010

How can you do that in lubuntu 10.04? In xubuntu 9.10 I could do that, if I use gnome-power-manager and gnome-screensaver, and use gnome-power-manager's icon to suspend/hibernate, but I don't see that kind of option in lubuntu.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.

Fedora Hardware :: Black Screen \ Can Force A Shutdown, Login And Get The Same Black Screen?

Mar 6, 2010

I was messing around with the screen orientation and thought it would be funny to orient it sideways. Big mistake The screen went black.I can force a shutdown, login and I get the same black screen. I tried hooking up an external monitor and the monitor showed no input so I'm guessing my laptop doesn't have that capability with Fedora.This is my main computer.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Black Screen During Booting Up?

Mar 30, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 in my old desktop, i.e. Compaq Evo D510 e-pc:

Intel Pentium 4 1.7Ghz
1GB 400Mhz RAM
Intel 845G chipset board
Onboard 4X AGP Intel Video chipset
Onboard audio

The above is my setup and Ubuntu runs perfectly fine when it is being cold booted, i.e. I shut it down during the night and boot it in the morning, it boots perfectly fine. But while using, it suddenly freezes and I'm only able to move my mouse pointer and nothing else works on the screen. I tried doing the Ctrl+Alt+(F1/F2/...) but nothing works.

So when I restart it using the power switch, it goes into the black screen and nothing loads up. I'm stuck over here. And if I turn it off for around 30mins by removing the power plug, and then reboot it again, Ubuntu loads without any problem and runs for sometime, then again the same freezing problem happens and I have to wait for another 30mins to boot it up again.

I have a 28" monitor connected to it and it runs at 1920 x 1200 (16:10) resolution at 60Hz.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GMA 4500: Screen Goes Black Randomly?

Dec 4, 2010

I'm really new to Linux (meaning that I never programmed or anything) but have a major issue here: I have been using Ubuntu since 9.04 (always upgrading) and always with this Laptop, without problems. Then I installed 10.10, didn't like it and downgraded to 10.04. Thats when the issue came up. So now I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and have an Intel GMA 4500 graphic card. That, though, is all I know about the graphics on my Laptop.

The problem:Every now and then (mostly right after logging in, then randomly) my monitor will flicker quickly and then go black completely.

After I close the laptop and open it up again, the screen works fine for some seconds, then, without moving anything, it goes black again. Sometimes it just stays normal, too. Just changing the angle of the monitor doesn't help, only closing it completely and opening it.

1) It could be the cable loop.BUT: The issue only appears after logging on to Linux. And moving the monitor doesnt help, just closing it completely.

2) Graphic driver.I have no idea how the software part of Linux works considering graphics. I have read that many people have had problems with GMA 4500, so my hope is that it can be fixed.
