Debian Installation :: Radeon ATI Gives Black Screen, Even With Nonfree-driver?

Jul 15, 2011

The screen goes black while "waiting to populate /dev/"and only by adding acpi=off can I boot into my system, and then I see that I get an error message during boot when "populating /dev/ " that says"fatal error during GPU init", even after I've installed the firmware-linux-nonfree.deb, which is the one for the R300 family, which I'm guessing is the right one, since lspci tells me I have:Radeon IGP 330M/340M/350MI've read the wiki[URL]

Debian Installation :: Radeon Graphics Chip - Jessie Requires Firmware-linux-nonfree

May 11, 2015

If you have a Radeon graphics chip and upgrade to Jessie, install firmware-linux-nonfree, before rebooting.

My dist-upgrade to Jessie seemed flawless until I rebooted and couldn't get into X.

Seems Jessie boots into Gnome by default, but Gnome now requires 3-D acceleration. For my Radeon graphics chip (ATI Radeon 3100), this requires firmware-linux-nonfree, which I didn't need before and was not installed as part of the upgrade.

A boot message alerted me to this need.

I was able to get X going with xinit. I used FVWM; for XFCE I believe the command is:

xinit /usr/bin/xfce4-session -- :1

and from there I installed the package firmware-linux-nonfree.

Debian Hardware :: NVidia Went To Black Screen - How To Install Radeon

Aug 14, 2010

My KT4AV-based PC has burned up two GEForce 6200 cards, so I decided to try an AGP bus Radeon HD 3650.At the same time as the nVidia card went "black screen" (no video at all, not even text) my CMOS battery died.I put in a new CMOS battery and fixed up the CMOS settings as well as I can.I put in an old Trident TVGA96PCI cardnd got as far as terminal mode, but even with the xserver-xorg-video-tridentdriver already n the system, I couldn't get the display manager to run. I gave up on the Trident card becauseold and bought a new Radeon HD 3650 card and changed the display bus from PCI toAGP in the CMOS settings.

The Radeon card now also gets me only to terminal mode.tried coaxing the system by renaming xorg.conf, but that didn't help - rebooting still gets me nowhere,no new xorg.conf file. The renamed one is still configured for the nVidia card. The xserver-xorg-video-radeon driveris also present, as "sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-radeon" tells me it's already the latest version.I'm presently stuck without direct network support, as the ethernet connection hangs the computer during rebootthe message, "ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready." If I unplug the ethernet cablefor starting successfully, when I plug it back in while I'm at the command prompt, I get a message to the effectthat eth0 up and running,"ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready" messageappears again and the sytem again freezes.I have successfully pinged this PC from another on the network, but not while it's hung up at the above-quotedmessage. In that case, it's "unavailable."How do I purge the system of the nVidia stuff and replace it with an approporiate Radeon driver ?

Debian Hardware :: Nvidia Driver Causing Black Screen

Jun 29, 2015

I have a system running a fairly new copy of Stretch. I have an nvidia Geforce 210 (on my desktop)

Code: Select allVGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT216 [GeForce 210] (rev a1)

Previously running Squeeze I was using the proprietary driver and never had any issues. Now using the nouveau driver video playback of mp4 files is glitchy and programs like google earth don't operate smoothly. I installed the nvidia driver from the repositories based on this guide, used nvidia-xconfig to generate an xorg.config file. I made sure noeveau was blacklisted and rebooted my machine.

I was greeted with a black screen. So I booted up in recovery mode, used telinit 2 (side note: what happened to /etc/inittab???) to change to a runlevel that doesn't start X, and confirmed that nouveau was, in fact, not loaded. Typed startx and without any errors or warnings the screen went black. ctrl+alt+fN wouldn't bring me back to a terminal, but hitting the power button did shut down X and halt the machine.

I'm not really sure how to go about debugging this as I get no useful output from anything, just a blank screen and that's it.

For the time being I just blacklisted the nvidia driver and let the system boot with nouveau; I'd still like to get the nvidia driver working properly, though. I've always just downloaded the driver right from nvidia and installed it, but I know that isn't the best way to do it. I'd rather not screw up a brand new system, it's so nice and fast with the new SSD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Black Screen Boot-up After NVidia Driver Install?

Nov 8, 2010

I realize that many have had the issue of getting a black screen when booting up. I'm posting because I've tried a couple fixes that I read after doing a search and haven't had any luck yet. I have the 64-bit 10.04 installed on my netbook and my issue surfaced after installing the current nVidia accelerated graphics driver. Following the install ubuntu now boots to a black screen and nothing more.

Debian Configuration :: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 Non-free Driver Installation?

Jun 6, 2011

1- I'm trying to install the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 driver over the non-free repository ...the problem is that until now i didn't found a recent documentation ...and to be honest i don't know which procedure should i use to rightly install the driver .

2- I have two graphic cards (integrated Intel with the i5 processor), and i can't change the default one to the ati! because debian had set the intel card as a native one...! that's why i´ m wondering if just an installation of the non-free drivers will solve this or not! I think every body will ask me how the lspci output looks like so here is it : 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor DRAM Controller (rev 02) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Core Processor PCI Express x16 Root Port (rev 02) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset HECI Controller (rev 06) 00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset USB2 Enhanced Host Controller (rev 05)00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)

Ubuntu Installation :: X201 Black Screen On Bootup With 10.04 RC (can't Get Intel Xorg Driver To Install)

Apr 27, 2010

Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:

- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode
- I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen
- I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)

I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Black Screen With Radeon HD 4200 - With All Graphics Drivers?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm using openSUSE 11.4 on a HP Pavilion laptop, and it was working fine until last week or so. A zypper update seems to have upgraded to a package with a nasty bug though: it now boots into a black screen, instead of showing kdm.And the only option after that is to forcefully shut down the machine;ither Ctrl+Alt+F1 nor Ctrl+Backspace nor Ctrl+Alt+Del does anything. Not sure if this means the kernel hangs,or just that X blocks all keyboard input as well.The issue with powering off with the hardware button is that I don't get full log files (especially kdm.log) so it's a bit hard to investigate...I have tried many things, here are the results:

* Default radeon driver + kdm = black screen
* nomodeset + radeonhd driver + kdm = black screen [driver doesn't support HD4200 anyway]
* nomodeset + radeon driver explicitely requested + kdm = black screen

OpenSUSE :: Dual Monitor - Nvidia Driver With X Screen - Shows A Black Screen

Feb 5, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.3 with an nvidia card connected with two monitors. In the past I used xinerama which was ok, but now I need to have two separate desktops, one on each screen. I set the nvidia driver with x screen, and now one screen works perfect and the other only shows a black screen. When I move the mouse over the black screen, the mouse pointer turns into an X, but moves correctly, which seems to me that the problem is that I need to set the second desktop to that screen. I looked on forums on how to do so, and no luck.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Rotation With Radeon Driver?

Mar 31, 2010

I just replaced my older monitor with a slightly newer, much nicer Dell 1905FP. I need to have it rotated, but I have no clue how to rotate it. I have seen several xorg.conf modifications that are supposed to work for some of the nvidia drivers, but nothing for the generic radeon driver. The radio buttons in SaX2 are grayed out as well. How do I set up X11 to rotate my display? Preferably without installing the other ATi driver, as I have tried before to switch to that one, and have been unsucessfull.

Hardware :: Driver For Radeon 7000/VE - Cannot Get The Screen Resolution

Mar 25, 2010

I have a machine with an ATI Radeon 7000/VE graphic card and I can not get the screen resolution I need. This is running on redhat enterprise 4 OS (32bit). My monitor is a 1600x1280 but I can not get anything better than 1024x768. I did set the desired resolution in the xorg file. I guess this would rather be a driver issue? I am running with radeon driver at the moment. I tried to get the fglrx from ATI but they do not seem to give any linux support for this card.

Debian Installation :: Screen Will Go Black After A Few Reboots?

Dec 14, 2010

I've been running 5.05. Just in the last few weeks after I update the screen will go black after a few reboots. I believe it has something to do with the ATI Drivers. If I clean install and install the smxi drivers after a few reboots the screen goes black right before the log in screen. This also happens with Mepis and Dream Linux which are Debian Base.

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

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.

I have a problem after installing Debian and running it on my machine. Instead of taking me to a splash login screen, it instead remains a black screen like a console where I type in my username and password, and it remains in this black command line mode beginning ben@ben-desktop:~$. Like it does in a terminal. What can I do to resolve this? This is completely new to me and hasn't happened to me in Ubuntu or Mint. I am familiar with using the terminal for the odd task but obviously I can't use it like this without a visible desktop.
