Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 With Nvidia 6150 Now Has A Blank Screen By Forcing Nomodeset

Mar 8, 2011

I'm installing 10.10 on a desktop with Nvidia 6150 that needs nomodeset on boot or i get the blank screen upon boot. I had to force the live CD to nomodeset when booting from the CD. I was finally able to install, but upon the first boot from the hard drive I'm getting the blank screen again. How do I boot with nomodeset and get to my installed ubuntu. Once I get there i can edit my grub settings.

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Black Screen Afer Install Booting With Nomodeset

Nov 30, 2010

Running ubuntu 10.10, had to use nomodeset to successfully boot from cd into "Try ubuntu without installing" thing and install ubuntu.

Edited grub by adding nomodeset after quiet and splash in order to boot from hard disk, still booting that way as I'm writing. The computer is an All In one Pc called ONETWOPWU44. The graphic card is an NVIDIA g210m.

After booting into hard disk I installed the proprietary driver resulting in an alternate of white then gray then black then an Image with red blue and some other colours on the screen, not sure of the order but they came one after an other, right when the login form should appear, I am then able to login by tipping my password into the form and pressing enter, I now that cause I can hear the sound when the system loads but the above described situation continues.

I had the same result with an older nvdia driver it was 253 something, don't remember exactly. Then I downloaded the 260.19.21 driver from nvdia website and installed it, with this one I only got a black screen. I now have a fresh ubuntu 10.10 copy and would like to be guided in making this work. How do I install the driver corectly or how do I enable nouveau 3d support?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install 10.4.2 LTS On PC With NVidia GeForce 6150 Card

Mar 23, 2011

This is to request the communities assistance with the following: As the title suggests, I am attempting to install 10.04.2 LTS on a PC equipped with an ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo and integral NVidia GeForce 6150 chipset/card and AMD dual processors.

Result: While the CD with the installation software loads, the splash screen comes up distorted and is displayed as several black and white horizontal bars. I have tried this with low end monitors with a VGA input with the same results. It appears to me as if though the video driver on the installation CD is not suitable for the mobo's chipset, but I may be wrong.

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen After Trying To Use Nvidia-173 In 10.04

Apr 25, 2010

I did a fresh install of 8.04 alternate disk with LVM then updraded to 10.04 (due to lack of any spare CDs around).

Everything was working fine but wanted to try to get the nvidia-173 drivers installed (I have an old FX5200). Can't start into X now as my plasma says mode unsupported.

At one point I managed to boot into recovery mode then root terminal and removed all nvidia packages and reinstalled nvidia-173 only and followed the instructions listed on the 10.04 release candidate page. Still stuck with the unsupported modes error on my TV though. I have a 720p plasma display (1366x76, I usually run 1280x768 without issues. I'm guessing it is the refresh rate set in the new xorg.conf that is throwing me off, how to adjust this?

An issue that's complicating things however is that when I try to boot into recovery mode I get an error stating 'pcspkr' driver already registered, aborting... then it hangs there until I ctrl-alt-delete and force a restart. This is preventing me from getting to the point where I can select a a root terminal to try to fix my errors.

I have used 8.04 exclusively for a few years and wanted to try something new (still not all that adept at linux setup).

EDIT: I managed to get to root again and just removed the xorg.conf file and that seems to work somewhat. Except now I can't boot as I get a looping mountall: Plymouth command failed that hangs up the process.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 - How To Set Nomodeset To Resolve The Black Screen

May 1, 2010

Following the instructions in this post I'm able to boot and work using the live-cd option (Try without installing). The trick is, of course, adding 'nomodeset' to the boot sequence.

Now, my problem is to add 'nomodeset' to the "normal" boot sequence - the one on my hard disk. I'm running Ubuntu on an LG E300 with ATI Radeon Xpress 1250.

I just upgraded to Lucid Lynx, and like most people, I'm getting the black screen during boot. So, I went into the grub edit screen, and I tried every variation of the nomodeset fix I could find. So far, nothing has worked. I don't know what graphics card I have, but it's always given me problems.

Hardware :: Using Geforce 6150 Nforce 430 And NVidia-drivers 196.*?

Jul 20, 2010

I used the videocard Geforce 6150 nforce 430 (NV4C) without problems untill the upgrade to kernel > 2.6.32 and nvidia-drivers > 190.*. After the upgrade I can use only nv and vesa in the Gentoo x86_64 and in the Fedora 13 x86_64. When I try to install Geforce 8800 GT everything becomes good with free nvidia-drivers and with proprietary ones in both distributions. use this videocard with the kernel 2.6.33(34)* and nvidia-drivers 196.* ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen: 10.04, ATI Radeon 9550 / X Tries To Load Screen Just Goes Blank?

May 9, 2010

I am having the same problem, as soon as X tries to load my screen just goes blank. I have an ATI Radeon 9550. At first I tried switching between VGA and DVI as well but upon ruling that out, I switch to my on-board video card and that is working thus far, but I'm trying very hard to figure out a way to be able to switch back. Anyways I'll check back in later on if I have any new information I will post.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Nvidia And Nomodeset Kernel Parameter

Jul 17, 2010

It's documented in the howto's that you need to have the nomodeset kernel parameter specified if you want to run the proprietary Nvidia driver. But I read in certain posts that this is only required for "older" graphics cards.Can someone shed some light on this? Is the parameter ALWAYS required when running the nvidia driver, or only for certain graphic cards?

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450 - Blank Screen

Oct 5, 2010

I have just bought a Dell Optiplex 960 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450. Everything works out of the box with the 10.04.1 Live CD. It suggests to install and activate NVIDIA proprietary drivers, but you need to restart the machine afterwards. The problem is that, after that, all what you get is a blank screen, with not even a cursor. The same happens when you install Lucid: blank screen with no cursor. Ctrl+F1 does not show anything, but Ctrl+Alt+Prnt Scrn+REISUB works and the PC is reset. In the var directory the logs show that the NVIDIA module is not loaded.

Fedora :: Nvidia Driver Install Not Blank Screen?

Oct 22, 2010

Running and just purchased a AGP 7600GT 512 video card. Searched around and found:I did the rpm, yum, sed, mv & dracut as directed. Then I rebooted. When it starts up (all the normal bios messages) and then I 1/2" bar across the bottom of the screen with Fedora 13 on the right end and .... nothing. Just sits there. I've used my Live-13 disk and tried to reverse the procedure but I'm starting to think it's the video drivers.

Fedora :: Blank Screen After Latest Updates - Nvidia Card

Mar 15, 2010

I ran the latest updates this week (including the new kernel and the new kmod-nvidia update) and I got a blank screen when I rebooted. (I get the Fedora bar across the bottom of the screen, then after that the screen goes blank) I assume this is when the xorg server is trying to start..

I went into single user mode , backed up and then removed the xorg.conf file but still got a blank screen upon reboot.

I rebooted into single user mode, copied the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file to a safe location, and then restored the system back to its original state.

I've since rsync'd my system back to where it was before the update.

Here's my Xorg.0.log file:

Fedora :: Boots To Blank Screen After Latest Updates (nvidia)

Aug 25, 2011

I've posted this to the fedora mailing list with no response, my apologies if it's been addressed here...

I have an IBM Thinkpad with an Nvidia card ( nVidia Corporation GT218 [NVS 3100M] (rev a2) )

I currently have the nouveau driver black listed in my grub.conf setup: rhgb quiet nouveau.modeset=0 rdblacklist=nouveau

I did the update which installed/updated the following:

---> Package kernel.i686 0: set to be installed
---> Package kernel-devel.i686 0: set to be installed
---> Package kernel-headers.i686 0: set to be updated
---> Package kmod-nvidia.i686 1:280.13-2.fc14 set to be updated

However when I reboot the system boots to a blank screen, and even the previous kernel boots to a blank screen. I tried installing akmod-nvidia but get the same results

I've restored the system back to before the update for now..

OpenSUSE Install :: Blank Screen After Upgrade From 11.2 To 11.3 (NVIDIA FX3800)

Jul 16, 2010

I have just performed an upgrade from OpenSUSE 11.2 to 11.3. My Machine is a Lenovo W701DS laptop which uses an NVIDIA FX3800M graphics card. The system was working fine under 11.2 before the upgrade.

After upgrading to 11.3 the splash screen after GRUB comes up for about 1 second before the screen goes blank. After about 5 mins I am able to SSH to the Laptop and access the system. Doing this I created an xorg file using "X -configure" and copied the new file to the /etc/X11 directory and renamed to xorg.conf.

If I SSH to the laptop change run levels to init 3 then init 5 the Gnome comes up and I have graphics the system works However I am unable to access the text consoles using alt+f1, f2 etc. If I restart the system it is back to the blank screen.

I have attempted to install the NVIDIA drivers however the installation fails due to an error with gcc or kernel source versions. Error log reports that the kernel was complied using a different version of gcc.

Slackware :: 13.1 Nvidia Framebuffer Woes - Blank Screen After Lilo

Jun 9, 2010

Just upgraded my system from 13.0 to 13.1 Most things went pretty smoothly, but I tried 'startx' before the post-upgrade/config reboot and the system hung - "time to upgrade my video drivers", I thought. Upgraded to Nvidia 195.36.15*. X works perfectly, and a modprobe shows the 'nvidia' module loaded. So far so good.

However, when I try to use any vesa modes in lilo, I get a blank screen after the BIOS check and the system hangs - even toggling numlock on or off won't work... So I can only boot up in text mode. This makes me unhappy, partially because I like penguins, but also because it is an absolute insult to my new (old) monitor. I thought this could be to do with the nouveau conflicts reported by -current users some days ago, but the respective blacklist file is present so I'm stuck as to what to do... *I've tried 195.36.15, 195.36.24 and the latest 2xx beta drivers. All exhibit the same behaviour.

EDIT - forgot to post my video card specs. It's an 8500gt w/ 256mb, 128-bit DDR3.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia+Compiz+crtl+alt+F7=blank Screen [Gnome]?

May 27, 2011

I got the nVidia driver and Compiz installed. Everything's running fine . But then I tried crtl+alt+F1 - which worked though the font was way too big - and then crtl+alt+F7 to get back to the Desktop but it went to a black screen and blinking cursor instead. I searched a bit and it seems this was a problem a few years back but nothing recent. FWIW, I don't have this problem with Hardy/nVidia/Compiz on another drive in this same machine. Is there a way to fix this?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Blank Screen Using Nvidia Drivers - Nv Driver Works Fine

Dec 10, 2009

I have just installed OpenSUSE 11.2 on an Intel DQ35JO motherboard and XFX 9500GT 512MB video card. After installation the desktop looked fine on the Sony LCD TV I have connected to the 9500GT via a DVI to HDMI cable.

After the first reboot after installation I added the Nvidia repository via the add community repository function in the software sources option in YaST2. I then proceeded to install the Nvidia G02 drivers and the nvidia-settings package. At this point after a reboot I would get a blank screen. Hitting ctrl-alt-F1/F2/F3/F4/F5/F6 has no effect, I could not get any of the virtual consoles to appear. I had to SSH into the box and reboot into runlevel 3.

Once I had rebooted into runlevel 3 I logged in as root and executed "sax2 -r -m 0=nvidia" and got an error message that the configuration server could not be started. I tried executing "sax2 -r -m 0=vesa" and received the same error:

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Image Not Loading - Flash Screen On Blank Screen

Dec 26, 2010

Is there a known problem with the Lubuntu 10.10 image here? I have downloaded it to two different computers, then burned the images to two different blank CD's (different brands) and neither loads. Both only get as far as the Lubuntu menu, once ENTER is pressed at that point to load the LiveCD, a blank screen eventually appears with a flashing cursor at the upper left of the screen, that's it. They were both burned using the slowest burn speeds available.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get The 10.10 Splash Screen For A Second Then A Blank Screen?

I have been running 10.04 quite successfully, when I upgraded to 10.10, I have a problem with the newer kernels. If I let it boot into the latest one 2.6.35-23, I get the Ubuntu 10.10 splash screen for a second then a blank screen, same with 2.6.35-22. I have to run with 32-25 to get it to load the gui.

I have an AMD Sempron 2800, 1.6GHz pc, but I'm not sure if it's running 64bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freeze/Blank Screen After Screen Off 11.04?

May 4, 2011

I've been running Ubuntu 10.10 very smoothly for a while now. Decided to upgrade to 11.04 - managed to corrupt the hard disk the first time by letting the laptop hibernate part of the way through but reinstalled from a live CD of 11.04 and it's now working except for this issue.

If I shut the screen on my laptop (or press the screen off button) either the screen won't come back on or it will but frozen (I can move the mouse but not click on anything etc.) In this state music continues to play (from spotify under wine) and if I press my hibernate shortcut (power button) the computer hibernates, only to wake into the same situation. I've got a Dell Latitude D520, upgraded to a bigger hard disk and more ram - the ubuntu partition has 50gb. Windows is working fine.

Edit: I noticed a sticky thread which includes something about a blank screen but I think this is a different issue?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Set Nomodeset After 10.10 Installation

Oct 30, 2010

I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 to find out I cannot access the grub menu. I tried alt+f2 but that didn't work. What the real problem is is that I am trying to get the display to turn on at boot since it automatically goes to sleep at boot and cannot be woken up. I could set "nomodeset" for the live cd and it would work fine but I can't find a way to do so when Kubuntu is already installed. Does anybody know how to access the grub menu or how to stop the display from sleeping?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unknown Monitor In Natty With Nomodeset

Jun 3, 2011

I'm trying to upgrade my sister to natty, but it wont boot properly unless I use nomodeset. It didn't need this in maverick, and she doesn't need any proprietary drivers, as she only has onboard laptop graphics (intel mobile 4 series I think..) So when I boot it into the LiveCD the resolution is wrong, so I go into system > preferences > monitors but it wont let me change the resolution as the monitor is listed as "Unknown" I also tried LinuxMint 11 (Katya) but it was the same (it is based on ubuntu anyways so it's not surprising.)
