Ubuntu :: System Running In Low Graphics Mode / Fix This?

Jun 20, 2010

(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

Oct 31, 2010

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
Reconfigure graphics
Troubleshoot the error
Exit to console login
Restart X

Ubuntu :: Running In Low-graphics Mode After Checking Drive For Errors

Oct 12, 2010

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

Mar 15, 2010

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.

My computer have ATI X600 graphics card installed, and I installed CentOS5.3.

Every time I suspend my computer and then resume it, it seem the graphics card can't resume and the monitor says 'no signal', but the system still responses, I can use keyboard.

Is there any configuration I can't do to make it resume normally? I've searched a lot in Google but can't find out any one else run into the same problem.

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 :: Identify Whether The Current System Is Running In Live Mode Or Not?

Aug 25, 2010

Is there any sure-fire way to identify whether the current Ubuntu system is running in Live mode or not? I want to distinguish between Live mode and running from installed HD, and do some processing in boot up script. FYI, in grml, the /etc/grml_cd file only exit in Live mode file system; no such file if running from installed HD.

Ubuntu :: System Won't Boot, Can't Find Safe Mode, Can't Launch Recovery Mode

Nov 18, 2010

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 :: 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:

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 8400GS - Low Graphics Mode

Sep 1, 2011

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

Sep 4, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Low Graphics Mode After Theme Install?

Oct 25, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell PC. I recently installed a theme called Faezna and now Ubuntu always runs in low graphics mode

I have
-Uninstalled and deleted theme files
-Changed theme back to default theme
-Rebooted several times
-Restored graphics settings in low graphics mode (pre-boot menu thing)

The thing that makes it worse is that the theme never even worked in the first place and T never got to see it!

Ubuntu :: Low Graphics Mode - Intel 845G

Jul 30, 2010

Have a reasonably old HP D510 running onboard Intel 845G graphics, which has worked fine to date using Suse 10/11.x x86 and also have tried various Ubuntu breeds on it before, as well. Have just installed Kubuntu 10.04, and am having issues that irregularly, and apparently randomly, screen goes black and I get a message saying "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode".

I OK this and get a messages asking me what I would like to do:
1 Run in low graphic for this session
2 Reconfigure graphic
3 Troubleshoot
4 Exit to console
5 Restart x

Basically, none of these work. If I click 2, there are a number of choices which don't work, can only cancel. Basically the only fix is a reboot, and it will again work for a 'random period of time'. Have never had this issue previously, so it is obviously something that has been introduced with 10.04? Briefly installed Ubuntu 10.04 prior to Kubuntu, and think I had the same prob.

Ubuntu :: No Options Working In Low Graphics Mode

Feb 15, 2011

I recently uninstalled some unnecessary libs thinking that I could work around without them. It turned out I couldn't. So I installed every single one, and it seemed like everything was working fine. But then I tried to boot, and was thrown into a low-graphics. Well I tried to boot in a low-graphics environment temporarily but it turned out X just restarted. Then I tried to reconfigure the settings, but choosing any option it threw me back into the last menu without any action being taken.

So I googled up some lines it was vomiting at me and it indeed might be my xorg not configured properly. but every time I try to reconfigure it and I look into the .conf file it turns out it is completely blank. maybe I should also note I am sporting a 64 bit bubuntu, not an NVidia though, Intel Series 4 express chipset family thing. I think it is a GMA4500MHD but not sure, what shall I do so that I don't have to reinstall my beautiful pimped out system?

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 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.
