Ubuntu :: System Running In Low Graphics Mode / Fix This?
(Consider yourselves forewarned: I'm completely new and will be incredibly stupid. Give me slack. )
So I'm trying to run my S-Video cord from my HP Desktop to my television screen. Everything was set up, then I looked up how to get it to start playing on forums here. I went to my NVIDIA, and when I went to change what apparently had to be changed, it was already set up in the format I was supposed to set it up as. I hit "save", and then restarted my computer, as the step-by-step instructions said. Upon restarting, I got an interesting message saying that Ubuntu had to be run in low graphics mode. I don't know the logistics of my computer, or really anything (it was given to me, and I don't know how to check ) I've been reading some things here, and a few things sounded like what was wrong with me, but when I followed the directions, it got me no where. I'm coming to you to prevent me from chucking this thing out my window .
So, what I'm asking from you:
1)How do I get out of Low Graphic Mode
2)How do I set up my NVIDIA to play to my TV?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Running In Low Graphics Mode Message
First off, I am still using 10.04. This hasn't happened to me until now. I was in Vista (I have vista on another partition) doing some things in Photoshop, and I saved it, and done. I restarted to go back into ubuntu and when it was booting it gave me a message saying:
Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself.
If I click OK (there are no other options) it takes me to a screen asking, "What would you like to do?" The options are:
Run Ubuntu in low-graphics mode for just one session
Troubleshoot the error
Exit to console login

Ubuntu :: Running In Low-graphics Mode After Checking Drive For Errors
I have been running 10.4 with no problems for some time now. Today when I booted up it started checking the drive for errors, and I just left it to do its thing. I came back to this warning screen: Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode.Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly.
I've tried all of these with no luck. When I select to run to low graphics mode, it says "Stand by one minute while the display restarts...OK".I select OK and then it gets stuck checking for battery state.I try to reconfigure the graphics, and nothing happens when I select any of the options on the next screen.

Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 9600gt - Error Message About Running In Low Graphics Mode
So I've searched across these forums and haven't quite found the same problem I'm having. For the record, I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 So I built my new box, and my video card is a Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce 9600GT (GIGABYTE GV-N96TZL-1GI). I go to System > Administration > Hardware Drivers to install the drivers so I can use those fancy 3D effects. It tells me I need to restart, so I do.
When it comes up though, I get an error message about running in low graphics mode, the top 5th of my screen is blacked out, and the screen has been shifted so that the left boundary is in the middle, and the right boundary goes off the screen and back to the left side. It goes back to working fine (but without the fancy 3D effects) when I remove the drivers. Both drivers in the hardware drivers (185 and 173) have this problem. I'd post log files and such, but I'm at work right now.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?
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 :: System Won't Boot, Can't Find Safe Mode, Can't Launch Recovery Mode
I attempted to install Catalyst 10.11 for my ATI HD 2600XT and the system now only displays lines and a large block of pixels where the mouse would go. CTRL-ALT-F1 kills the system and does not provide a command prompt. This is a single installation, not dual-boot, but there is no Press Esc to access the Grub menu during startup so I cannot choose safe mode. I attempted to get into Recovery mode using the flash drive that I used to install the system and it tells me there is no Recovery kernel (I used the 64-bit Desktop installer, not alternative). Does anyone know an alternative to get into the Grub menu other than ESC during bootup? Alternatively, do I need to download the 64-bit Alternative ISO and create a new boot disk with it so I can access Recovery mode? Is there something else I'm not thinking of?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Randomly Go Into Low Graphics Mode
I have (not so recently) installed 10.04. It seems to randomly go into low graphics mode completely randomly i.e. using firefox, gimp, terminal.... not just with high graphics programs. A dialog will pop up and say that my devices are not detected/ configured properly. I then have to force shutdown..

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot 9.10 With Graphics Mode
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

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 8400GS - Low Graphics Mode
A few days ago, I upgraded my system from the EOL 9.04 to 10.04LTS. This did go relatively well, though the upgrade process reported some "could not update" errors for the NVIDIA drivers and at the first boot it reported it had to start in low graphics mode. I noticed that I had manually installed drivers from NVIDIA's website before the upgrade, while afterwards the hardware drivers from the package manager had been enabled. I then disabled Ubuntu's drivers, and attempted to manually reinstall NVIDIA's own drivers.
This resulted in some errors related to the install script not being able to find some vdpau related stuff. Something interesting then occured. As root everything worked flawless, but as normal user I still ended up with errors resulting Ubuntu to continue in low graphics mode. So I enabled the package managers driver again. This seemed to solve all issues for the next 5 boots. Until this morning, I again get a black screen with only a blinking "_" on the screen for quite some time, after which (nice feature) Ubuntu proposes to continue in low graphics mode.
Here is a relevant part from my syslog:

Ubuntu :: 3D Acceleration Does Not Work - Low Graphics Mode
For some reason after updating, somewhere my system is messed up where my 3d acceleration doesn't work. I found a workaround though, I can get it to work when I reboot, and manually select my OS at the grub2 menu by pressing enter. It doesn't work all the time this way, but most the time it does allow 3d acceleration to work almost normal. If I let the grub2 timer count down to auto select it will never be 3d accelerated, and prompts me it's going to run in low-graphics mode and I'm given an option to Restart X. Ok that's one part of it...
Now with my workaround say I got 3d acceleration to work, when I go to System > Preferences > Appearance : and for Visual Effects I select "Normal" (was on none). It will apply fine, until I reboot it gets set back to none. So I'm having to manually put everything back (graphics) every time I boot, this is a horrible bug. Then onto another aspect of this wonderful update. All my letters and numbers on the keyboard are normal, except when I use control and ALT, they don't seem to be mapped correctly because I can't use any of my Keyboard Shortcuts.
