Debian :: Squeeze Black Screen On Boot Since Upgrade?

Aug 11, 2010

After doing a dist-upgrade today, my one year old install of squeeze will no longer boot. It stops with a black screen and has to be hard reset. Cant even get to tty1. The last line in dmesg is: cfg80211: Calling CRDA to update world regulatory domain

mike@vaio ~ $ lspci | grep Network 06:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless WiFi Link 5100.Just wondered if anyone has any ideas before I restore from a backup?

Debian :: On Squeeze - Black Screen After Gdm Loads?

Dec 15, 2010

After entering runlevel 2 and gdm loads, I only get a black screen. I hear a beep that indicates gdm has loaded, but everything stays black. Trying to switch to a console using ctrl-alt-f1 does absolutely nothing.

At one point, I disabled gdm from starting in runlevel 2, and rebooted. I then typed into tty2 "sleep 60 ; reboot" and in tty1 "gdm" and hoped for a reboot if the graphical login didn't appear. No reboot occurred, my black screen remained.

I've issued acpi=off at kernel command line (from grub) and disabled all acpi services. That seemed to work for a few hours but now I get the black screen again every time. There's no option in the BIOS to switch from acpi to apm, so I've done all I can do on the software side of things.

Debian Hardware :: Installing Nvidia On Squeeze (GeForce 8400M GT) - Shows Gdm3 Screen With Lot Of Black Pixels

Feb 16, 2011

I recently upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze. My graphic card is nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8400M GT] (rev a1). Using lenny latest drivers from nvidia worked fine. I installed nvidia drivers using Debian packages 195.36.31-6 and latest driver from nvidia site (260.19.36) and also other nvidia drivers. The problem is when I start gdm3 I saw nvidia logo but then when it loads gdm3 it shows gdm3 screen with lot of black pixels and other random pixels and then the screen freezes. And the only thing I can do is restart using [alt]+[sysrq]+b.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 Upgrade Fails On Boot - Screen Flashes To Black

May 2, 2009

I have just finished updating my older box from 8.10 to 9.04 and installing a bunch of programs. I had shut it down several times between sessions but when I unplugged it and moved it, it fails. It goes fine through the BIOS and GRUB (I think) but then when there is a screen of text it flashes to black several times and then displays a screen that looks like static with "Ubuntu" barely visible in several places.

We don't have any idea of what to do ;__;

Here start the hell. after the restart i have passed the kde login screen and after BLACK SCREEN with mouse working.

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 :: Failing To Boot After Lenny / Squeeze Upgrade

Jun 11, 2010

I've done the ordinary sources.list update (lenny to squeeze) and Code: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install dpkg apt aptitude.sudo aptitude full-upgrade However, udev failed to install, and I used..Code: touch /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade and did full-upgrade again. Everything was going fine, I went through several package configurations and suddenly, after 30-40 minutes of "Unpacking Setting up." I just heard two system beeps and got an error similar to a kernel panic. The SYSRQs did nothing. Did a hard reboot.I got two kernels in GRUB now. + the GRUB2 chainloading option. Used this one and got Code: Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block It's all the same with the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel kernel panic. Using the older kernel didn't fail on the boot up, but showed many UDEV related errors and logging in was impossible - all I get were segmentation faults. Forgot to mention it - my FS is Reiserfs

Debian :: Can't Boot Squeeze - Messed Up The Upgrade Of The Kernel Images

Jul 2, 2010

I messed up my install so now I can't boot it. I get errors. I doubt I'll be able to fix it. I messed up the upgrade of the kernel images... I'm not sure whether there's something I could do in the Grub config file... I have one other Linux OS I can use in the meantime (plus Windows OS) so I thought maybe boot that up and check the Debian partition in case there's any files I want to save/keep. If I re-install, is Debian Squeeze LXDE still a good choice? I'm going to install something different in the partition where the other Linux OS is. Right now, it's grub is handling the boot loader. The computer is an old laptop, a Thinkpad T41. The HDD is 160GB.

Debian Installation :: Black Screen On Boot?

Jan 8, 2011

after a couple of years using Debian derivatives, I decided to try debian 5. Seemed to install okay. Installed Mint afterwards (as debian didnt boot) and debian is visible in the boot menu. Upon selection of debian, I just get a black screen and the monitor gives the message "input not supported". I havent had any such problems with numerous distros over the 2 years.

Debian :: Black Screen At Some Point Of Boot?

Aug 8, 2011

I've just installed debian on a rather old laptop (Toshiba satellite 1800). The installation process was ok, I selected desktop supprot when it asked me which additional software it should set up.

But then, when I tried to boot for the first time, i saw some messages for the first time, but then I coud see only a black screen (yet the backlight is not turned off). Immediately before the screen turns black, the last printed line is something like "starting gnome...". When I select single-user mode in GRUB, the system (with no window manager) starts well.

Debian Hardware :: Black Screen After Boot?

Apr 1, 2011

I am experiencing a weird problem with my dell latitude laptop. I installed debian amd64 once with gnome and after grub it echoes the following message: Unknown controller version (2). You may experience problems. and after the /dev procedure my screen (16:9) goes black.

After that I tried to reinstalled debian without gnome and I booted to shell. From there I installed manually (apt-get) gnome and started gdm3 and I my screen was ok, but after I did a reboot the same problem happened. Also, when I boot with an external VGA monitor, the vga looks ok but the laptop screen is still black.

output of lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

EDIT: I just realized another strange thing. If I boot without the vga plugged, I get the usual black screen and If I wait and understand that I am in the login screen and at this time I plug the vga, then miraculously my laptop screen works fine!!! But later on if I close the laptop lid and open it again, then again ... black screen but if I plug the vga it's ok again!

Debian Installation :: Screen Goes Black On First Boot After Install

Aug 22, 2014

I thought I'd breathe some new life into my aging PowerMac G5 desktop computer by installing debian. I burned the CD and ran the installer and everything installed okay, but when I went to boot it up for the first time, the screen blacked out after a few seconds of scrolling text and shows no signs of life after that. The computer just stops sending video to the monitor, and the only thing I can do is shut it down by holding down the power key.

Debian Installation :: Gateway - Black Screen Upon First Boot

Dec 28, 2014

I am a complete beginner to Linux (I understand a little bit of terminal from my OSX usage). I did a fresh install of Debian on an older Gateway laptop to try and make it usable for something. There is no other OS installed to this machine, I would like it to run Debian exclusively.

I used the UNetbootin application to install Debian from USB [URL] ..... Everything seemed to install just fine (no errors). However, upon 1st boot, I am presented with a black screen with a blinking white cursor. I cannot seem to get past this. I searched around and found this post: [URL] ... which seems identical except that their machine is a Mac. I had no luck using the REISUB reboot method. When I hold Alt+SysRq or Alt+PrtSc, it makes a lot of beeping noise. Issuing the REISUB keystrokes while holding does nothing.

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot XP / Squeeze - Blank Screen With J On Restart

May 8, 2010

I've had Windows XP Home installed on my netbook (Toshiba NB205) and I've just tried to install squeeze via net install. In particular, I installed grub. Everything seemed to go ok during the installation, but when I boot up, all that appears is a blank screen with nothing but at "j" and a cursor. One thing I can think of that might offer a clue, is that when asked to installed grub, the installer said it recognized two operating systems: Microsoft Windows XP Home, and Windows NT/XP. The latter is not really an operating system, but the backup partition.

I don't know how this might affect grub's functioning. What does this "j" mean? Looking at this: [URL]. Could this have some thing to do with boot flag? Should I switch it to my NTFS partition instead of my root partition? Doing that at least let's me boot into Windows. But that's not what I want. I've never dual booted before. So I booted back up with my USB, intending to reinstall Debian, and it loaded grub instead. So apparently grub is now on my USB. Then it booted me into Debian.

Debian Installation :: Black Screen With Cross Pointer After Boot

Sep 19, 2015

Yesterday I installed Debian Jessie, I ran into a few problems at first, but in the end everything worked fine. It started the desktop environment (gnome). I installed a few programs(sudo, chromium, tor) and saw that everything was working correctly. I shutdown the system with the command "shutdown now". Then I booted into windows to make sure I hadn't broken anything there (which I did not), but when I tried going back to Debian, it booted to a black screen with a cross as a pointer. By pressing ALT CTRL <FKEY>, I can effectively get to other virtual terminals and login there, however trying to start the desktop environment with "startx" results in the same thing.

I installed Debian on an external hard drive and made four partitions, boot, /(root), /home, and swap.

I also tried to apt-get install --reinstall gnome and apt-get install --reinstall xorg, but the result is still the same

Not actually solved, but in the end just reinstalling got rid of the problem.

Debian Installation :: New Jessie Install Black Screen On Boot (AMD Video)

May 14, 2015

I installed jessie amd64 lxde to a thumb drive to use with a laptop. Vanilla install using the amd64 lxde live cd. Upon booting the usb system, I am presented with a black screen with blinking cursor. No grub screen, no ability to type any commands and no ability to switch to another terminal. I tried booting into the live cd and I could get into the intro splash screen. Booting to the live system from there would also hang at a black screen.

However, using the kernel parameter "nomodeset" from the splash screen did allow the live system to boot to the desktop. I booted the live system, mounted the usb system and chrooted into it. I edited /etc/default/grub to include "nomodeset" in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX variables and then ran update-grub.

Upon reboot to the usb system the problem still occurred. The video card in question is a amd firepro 5800m which has an lspci line of mobile radeon 5000 series. This card was supported in wheezy and apparently works with the live system.

Debian Installation :: Asus H97-Plus - UEFI (Secure Boot) / Black Screen Install

Aug 29, 2014

I appear to have the exact problem that is currently listed in the 7.6 errata about EFI boot and black screen while trying to install ("Potential issues with UEFI booting on amd64"). The problem is that their workaround is not an option for me. This is a new rig and the motherboard doesn't appear to have any kind of ability to disable secure boot. I also don't know if my problem is exactly what they're thinking when it comes to that entry.

I'm able to get to the Grub install screen where you have the option to install Debian but when I select an option (any option) the screen turns off, back on but is black. All activity in the system stops after a few seconds (3-5 seconds) and that's it, she's done. I've tried all the options to try and disable secure boot but the options listed below are as close as I can get (and apparently should be sufficient).

The CD ISO used was the 7.6 netinst CD. I've also tried the Jessie ISO (Testing) that was downloaded about 2 hours ago. Same results. Unlike the errata which says "intermittent booting problems", my issue is consistently reproduced with no other result no matter what I do.

The rig:
-Asus H97-Plus running revision 2202
-Intel i5-4570
-32GB DDR3-1600
-128GB SSD Drive
-No external video card - using on board only but have tried both VGA and HDMI ports with the same result.

BIOS settings (is it still called BIOS or is it UEFI now?)
-Fast Boot: Disabled
-Launch CSM: Enabled
-Boot Device Control: "Legacy OPROM Only" or "UEFI and Legacy OPROM" (tried both)
-Secure Boot State: Enabled (it's grayed out and I'm unable to change this)
-OS Type: Other OS (supposedly makes it so you can boot non-Windows OS)

The Debian page with the errata: [URL] ...

Look for "Potential issues with UEFI booting on amd64"

The obvious suggestions I've tried:
-tried USB boot & CD boot - same result
-tried altering the grub script to add the ACPI options - no effect

Debian Hardware :: Complete Hardware Failure - Black Screen Before Boot

Mar 5, 2010

No wonder my network-career is not getting in the mood... always other trouble.

Thing is: reboot and ended with a black screen: "no video available". i hit the reboot button. same result. I just, today, added a new DVD/Read-Write, so i have assumed thats the problem. Unplugged it: same problem. Nothing, not even the BIOS-display.

As i once started a PC without keyboard connected i did remember that that doesn't work (if i recall correct it gave me some beeps, today nothing like a beep). I replaced the keyboard and could boot.

But i don't trust this result. If someone might give an experienced opinion i would be very glad (i got several pc's, but this one is the only one which is really usuable, though its still a 200€ one, but it does all i need).

Fedora Installation :: F15 Upgrade Black Screen

Jun 25, 2011

I upgraded my machine to F15. I was asked to reboot. From that point on, the system will not boot. I get to the blue screen with the 'egg', about 1/3 of the 'egg' turns white, then the screen goes black. No cursor, nothing.

I hit shift to get the Grub menu, tried booting my old kernel. Same result.

I tried burning a F15 live cd and booting that, but I get a desktop background with no mouse, no docks. It doesn't seem to respond to anything I do. I can boot it in the "basic graphics" mode, or whatever you call it, but I would rather not overwrite my entire hard drive with a fresh install.

I have seen references to some kind of recovery mode provided on the live cd that might repair my install without wiping my data, but I can't find it anywhere.

My hardware:
Dual core Atom D525
Intel NM10 chipset
