Ubuntu Installation :: Get Kubuntu Boot Screen At Startup - Low Graphics Mode By Default

Jul 19, 2010

I wanted to update my NVIDIA Drivers from the default to 256 (or whatever the latest is on their site). After the upgrade from their site and installing it through a command line, I've had trouble. For some reason, whenever I boot, I get the Kubuntu boot screen, even though I run plain Ubuntu. Also, after I boot it defaults to low graphics mode, and I have to hit "restart X" to make it run normal. Even then, visual effects won't enable, and games won't run, because apparently the "hardware device cannot be found". My attempts to revert back to old drivers have been unsuccessful; It says it's running the recommended right now, but I still have all these problems.

Ubuntu :: Low Graphics Mode - Half Screen Missing

May 9, 2010

I have a new sony vaio VPCF11NFX/B with a fresh install of Lucid. I am using a VGA-out to a LCD monitor. It shows up and is recognized. I cannot get video to appear on my laptop monitor. Moreover, when I unplug my external monitor, I cannot boot into ubuntu. It brings me to low graphics mode and I can't do anything from there because half of the screen is missing.

Ubuntu :: Low Graphics Mode - Screen Suddenly Goes Black

May 30, 2010

The last few days I have had to reboot my Ubuntu-workstation when the screen suddenly goes black. After some seconds I get a pop-up with the message:
Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode
There is some buttons that tells me I can do different things (like reconfiguration ) but whatever I do I end up loosing all windows I worked in earlier. And having to reboot to get back full resolution. I have not found any way to reproduce this behavior. It has happened after being logged in for several days and sometimes just after boot and login when I'm starting an xterm and in all time intervals in between the output of:

sudo lshw -C display

Ubuntu :: Screen Sometimes Suddenly Goes Black And Go Low Graphics Mode

Jun 3, 2010

Recently upgraded to 10.04 after countless problems w/ Karmic & already problems with Lucid! The screen sometimes suddenly goes black, then goes into low graphics mode, if I let it, thereby changing screen rez & unless I reboot, I am stuck in this mode. If I don't choose temporary low graphics mode, I must reboot. Many others seem to be experiencing the same problem yet have been offered no solution by the developers. So.

Ubuntu :: Sudden Low Graphics Mode - Screen Not Detected

Jul 17, 2010

While using Ubuntu I have had few problems and it has generally just worked. One problem I have had is that while using my computer on occasion everything will be stopped and there will a message against a black background telling me the graphics card and screen could not be detected I have several options which are something like.

Run Ubuntu in low graphics mode for one session (which brings me to a normal login)
Run Ubuntu from a console (or something like that, it goes to a console)
Troubleshoot the error (I'm new to Ubuntu and never tried it)
Restart X (I never used it)

I think I missed one or two. "Run Ubuntu in low graphics mode for one session" works for me, but it is still a nuisance that I have to login again. It doesn't happen that often, not everyday at least and happens at random. I could have been using it for over an hour so I wonder why it suddenly can't detect the graphics card or monitor.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 With Blank Screen - No Safe Graphics Mode?

Jul 18, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 installation takes me to a blank (monitor away) screen. I have followed Google searches and forums and have tried all the nomodreset & radeon.setmode=1 stuff on command line and have failed. If you press F6 on the menu and play with the options you would see that half the options do not work even if you select them. Why even have "nonodreset" as an option when it does not do anything? Did the developers not once wonder that having installation that is not based on grapic driver (that is text based or safe mode based) would be the way to go. Go ahead and Google "Ubuntu installation blank screen" and you will see that this is a pretty massive problem.

Ubuntu :: Ati Graphics - 10.10, OC'ing - Get A 'black-ish' Screen - Get Into Text Mode From Booting Up?

Dec 31, 2010

What happened was, i used sticonfig to attempt to OC my graphics card, it all seemed to work well, then i put some stress on the card and got a 'black-ish' screen. No matter i though i will boot into text mode (How do you do it normally? The only reason i could was because i crashed my system and could choose recovery mode to then choose text based) and change it back to default and it will all be fine, woo... But apparently you need to be in X server for that command to take effect. ****...........

How do i get into text mode from booting up?
How can i fix this?!

I have tried looking in BIOS but there is nothing there. Have i just fried my card? (It was close to max settings - although only on full load for like 1 second) Could booting up normally, and just 'going in blind' work, like opening up terminal with a hotkey and just entering the command from there....

Ubuntu 10.10
PowerColor Radeon HD 5870

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot 9.10 With Graphics Mode

Apr 9, 2011

In these days I install ubuntu 9.10 64bit on several notebook (Intel + AMD Switchable Graphics, NVIDIA Optimus Hybrid graphics), but the same problem is it can't boot ubuntu with graphic mode. I only can install it with text mode, and after installation, it still boot with text mode. I tried to execute startx, but failed to switch to graphics mode. I didn't see this issue with some notebooks with ATI/NVIDIA graphics, so I think this issue may relate with VBIOS VBE mode settings.

When I try to execute "startx" under the text mode, some error information appears as below.
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found

General :: Get Grub2 To Boot OS X With Graphics Mode Boot Option?

Apr 14, 2010

I've set up a triple boot system (Ubuntu Karmic, Windows Vista and OSX86 -- a patched OS X which works on a PC) on a Dell 9200 (C2D 2.13 GHz, 4GB RAM, nVidia G210). I sue Grub2 as the bootloader and update-grub picks up OS X and it boots without any problem.

However, although when booting OS X using its own Darwin bootloader, I can apply the boot option "Graphics Mode"="1680x1050x32" to ensure that I get the screen resolution that I want, when OS X boots from Grub2, the only resolution available is 1024x768 which is disappointing. I have tried adding gfxmode=1650x1050x32 to the OS X section of /boot/grub/grub.cfg in Ubuntu but this does nothing.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Boot Into Low Graphics Mode

Sep 11, 2010

Installed ubuntu successfully on the hard disk through live CD. My machine is a ASUS K40IN, with Graphics card GEForce G102M. Can't get ubuntu to run normally so I have to access through terminal in recovery mode. I need to install the drivers for the graphics card so I can run ubuntu in some form of gdm, otherwise I'm pretty much blind since I'm not too good with code.

/etc/x11/xorg.conf does not exist, so I can't use the exploit to get me to low graphics mode.

If there's a command I can enter into grub to run me in low graphics mode, anyone? I'm keeping [URL] and [URL] threads in view, since it's very possible I'm running into the same problems. I have the nvidia driver loaded on my ntfs usb stick ready to transfer and install but I can't seem to mount it proper. FailsafeX graphics mode does not work. I get a blank black screen.

Ubuntu :: 10.04.1 Dont Boot In Graphics Mode

Feb 4, 2011

I had been using Ubuntu 10.04.1 in a Macbook pro (triple boot: Mac, Win7 and Ubuntu). Now I am not able to boot in to Ubuntu in graphics mode. It just freezes after the Ubuntu logo appears. It happened once before and I re-installed the OS. Now I have the same issue. I can boot in recovery mode and get into my account.

When I tried startx command I get the error below:

(there is more stuff splashed on the screen, but the above two are the only errors I see)

I thought of reinstalling the OS. But this may happen again and re-installing the OS every month wipes out all my configurations and files in my account.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Low Graphics Mode?

May 15, 2010

This started yesterday.I have been running Lucid since the Beta release with no problems. Yesterday, I found about 20 or so updates ready for 10.04. I looked them over, mostly lib files, so I decided to go ahead and let them update. That evening I rebooted my machine before I left for the night, and it came up with the error "Ubuntu is running in Low Graphics Mode". In a word X is totally hosed. The display is cut just left of center, with part of the windows on the right carrying off the screen to come back onto the screen to the left.

I thought maybe Xconf might have been messed up, but not sure how. The updates I applied did not do anything to Xorg; and my understanding was that I didn't need that file because I am running with an Nvidia card. I tried to "reconfigure" the X settings from the error message, that did not work. I logged into a text only terminal, and copied a good backup of Xorg.conf back into place and rebooted. Same thing, still running in Low Graphics mode.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Boot From Usb In Safe Graphics Mode?

May 30, 2010

how to enable boot in safe graphics mode in the bootable USB that I created for 10.04 by following the instructions in the download page.

Currently when I boot from USB and select installation, the monitor goes off. So I guess safe graphics mode is the way to go.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Low Graphics Mode And TVTime Will Not Launch

Jun 7, 2010

After installing Ubuntu 10.04 LTS over the weekend I had some problems, which I subsequently solved and thought I'd mention here.
- First, the dreaded Low Graphics (EE)NOUVEAU(0):Error allocating scanout buffer:-12 which wouldn't allow me to change my monitor resolution.
- Second, TVTime television viewer would not launch at all.

Solution to BOTH of these problems:
From Synaptic uninstall xserver-xorg-video-nouveau (experimental) and reinstall xserver-xorg-video-nv.
Now everything works!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Keeps Booting Into Low Graphics Mode

I cannot get my driver to work in 10.04 LTS. I've googled all around and still can't fix this. Randomly when I boot up it says ubuntu is running in low graphics mode. It was working yesterday. I had this problem before and it just randomly fixed its self. I have an Nvidia 320m graphics card with drivers from the hardware drivers program.

Heres my xorg.conf file ...

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Get To Console From The Graphics Mode

Apr 5, 2011

My problem is that I anyway cannot get to the text console when I have run the desktop environment. When I press Ctrl+Alt+Fx (where x - number of tty console), the video adapter doesn't send signal into monitor. Keyboard also stops reacting, only Magic SysRq Key works. The same result I can see when I turn off the desktop environment (I have uninstalled gdm) or kill X-server with the "kill -9" command. The only way to get to console (except window terminal) is remote connection via SSH.

The problem occurs only when I have run X-server. When I turn on the computer, I can see start messages. Since I've uninstalled gdm, I have also access to the console after I turn on my computer. I can normally switch between tty consoles, until I type "startx" command. Everything started when I've tryed to install non-free ATI video drivers. They practically worked, because I've had some problems with them (I just don't remember what problems), so I've uninstalled them and returned to the open. Then this problem apeeared. I tried to reinstall Xorg, change kernel (installed from repos), switch off the framebuffer, but it gave nothing.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Computer Drops To Low Graphics Mode After Powersave?

May 31, 2010

I have recently been experiencing some issues with the powersave on my computer. I had my computer set to put the display to sleep after 10 minutes and put the computer to sleep after 30 minutes. The screen saver also activates at 5 minutes. When I woke up my computer (hit the power button) the computer would sometimes tell me that it was going into low graphics mode. I had to reboot to get my x server back. I disabled the power save to fix the problem, but I would really like to have it back. My latest Xorg.log gives an error, but I'm not sure if the power save caused the problem (more below). I am running a computer with an Intel Integrated chipset.My questions:

What caused the x server to crash?Should I post a bug report on Launchpad? If so, how? (im a bit of a noob as far as bug reporting)How can I fix the problem?Xorg.log:

X.Org X Server 1.7.6
Release Date: 2010-03-17

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Safe Graphics Mode Failed To Load

Aug 5, 2010

I made a backup of xorg.conf and added Xinerama and the other configuration items I needed. X failed to load. Then I copied my backup to xorg.conf and...X failed to load. Then I tried booting up in safe graphics made, and X failed to load. I tried dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but it did nothing. Literally nothing -- no error, no output, no nothing. Then I saw someone who had suggested to apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg, then reinstall it, and X failed to load.

I am at a complete loss. I have now read that the dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg is no longer used, that the os is supposed to autodetect everything now, but in that case I don't see how I will ever get dual monitors. In any case, I can live without dual monitors, but I need at least ONE monitor, and I have no idea how to get the configuration working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - Machine Locks Up After Low Graphics Mode Error

Jan 6, 2011

After updating Ubuntu 10.04 I'm getting this error message. "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode. Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module." I have a NVIDIA Geforce 220 video card and previously installed the NVIDIA drivers. All was working well until this last update. There are countless number of forum messages on how to fix this but my problem is compounded because when I get this message the machine appears to lock up.

It doesn't respond to any keyboard commands such as Ctrl-Alt-F1. I am not able to get to a command prompt at all. This was a fresh install of 10.04 so I believe it uses GRUB2 which automatically boots into the operating system with no menu. Is there a way to stop GRUB2 from automatically running the OS and giving me a menu? I really don't want to reinstall.

Ubuntu :: Failsafe Graphics Option In Recovery Mode Boot Fine

Nov 24, 2010

This started a few days ago and I checked back through recently installed packages and nothing looks related. If I boot into ubuntu normally, plymouth looks a mess, but then things boot fine but while the mouse is showing and ubuntu goes about with connecting to networks and so on, but it doesn't register the and input from the mouse or keyboard. It will sleep if you press the power button, but its no more responsive after waking up.

If I boot into recovery mode, and use the failsafe graphics option then everything runs fine. Apart from 3D graphics being pretty slow, which I can kind of understand. I get the same behaviour on all of the last three kernels. I'm running the latest maverick on an HP 6715b. i386 version although the processor is 64 bit compatible. 2Gb RAM.

Now the problem is that the system boots ok, it gives me a msg saying that system is running in low graphics mode, when i press ok i get a few options like troubleshootin or restart x or use back up configuration .. and nothing works .. when i press start normally it never stops loading .. i can see the terminal when clicking ctrl + alt + f1,f2 ... but when i press ctrl + alt + f7 or return back to the desktop ubuntu is still loading .. it never stops loading.

Debian Multimedia :: Graphics Mode And 'xf86config' Command Not Found?

Mar 29, 2011

I recently did a reinstall on my system and I am now running Squeeze. I am currently trying to get some software running, but I believe I am having issues with the graphics requirements. The software needs an X server with 8 bit / PseudoColor mode. It is recommended to work in "8,24"-overlay mode. This was set up on my old install on this computer, so I know it is not a problem with my graphics card. But in the installation guide it says to enable this function it is necessary to add some information in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4. The problem is I don't have this file. I had this file in my old install, but on the fresh install it is not there. I have the /etc/X11/ directory, and it contains: directories: app-defaults, applnk, cursors, fonts, twm, xinit, xkb, Xreset.d, Xresources, Xsession.d


files: default-display-manager, rgb.txt, X, Xreset, Xsession, Xsession.options, XvMCConfig, Xwrapper.config

I think I've looked through everything in the /etc/X11/ directory but I don't see anything that looks like the XF86Config-4 file. Is there possibly a package that I am missing or something I need to run to create this file? I know on my old install this file was created or modified by running 'xf86config' in the command line. I've tried that, but it tells me 'command not found'.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?

Jan 26, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.

Ubuntu :: Boot Screen Says Graphics Disabled Value 0?

It does this before it shows the ubuntu logo, which slows the boot time drasticly. The text flashes pretty quick, so I could only catch some main details. I've tried looking up my specs for my laptop to see what chipset the built in graphics runs off of but all it gives me is video memory is like 32mb and max allocated ram
