General :: Splash Screen Resolution Changed - Bottom Half Part Black
Oct 15, 2010
I downloaded some software yesterday from the ubuntu rep. This morning my screen has the bottom part of in black there are the KDE docky ,firefox ,terminal & rhythmbox icons ,so is the taskbar..but the wallpaper is cut up ,4cm off. I have noticed that the splash screens res has changed too. It's sharper (smaller). The browser as a consequence is also half lit & having noscript in the bottom without it being visible is a problem. Why has this happened & how can I fix it. The last working config, well that's somewhere else.
I tried adjusting the resolution in Ubuntu so that it would fit better on my screen. The first one I tried worked ok, but when I tried a higher resolution the screen went black. Now I can't see anything on the screen so I can't change the resolution back to where it was. If I hit esc when booting up, is there anything I can do that will change it back to the default?
I just stupidly changed my graphics resolution in System - Preferences - Startup Manager, now i dont get a login window or anything just a black screen. I also disabled the splash but i assume this just gets rid of the ubuntu loading line thingy?
the weird thing is that the resolution was set to 640x800 or something like that in the Startup Manager as default and the laptop im using (an old Toshiba Amilo P4) supports 1024x768. the System - Preferences - Display menu wouldnt let me change any display settings which is why i was messing about here. I havent got any backed up x org file and only a live usb of super os/ubuntu - no cd or floppy drive.
Today I wanted to get rid of ugly GRUB and installed GRUB. I really like it, but there is one annoyance - I used these tips:URL...To have a Splash screen in Ubuntu in full 1680x1050 32-bit, and it worked perfectly. But when I installed BURG in the place of GRUB, I have 640x480 ugly boot splash as I had in the very beginning.Repeating the steps doesn't seem to help. What should I do?I should note that I easily changed BURG's resolution to 1680x1050 using 'R' while in BURG. 640x480 only applies to Splash after I choose Ubuntu.
So I know now that I reach the login screen, and I know to hit control, alt, f1. However, all attempts to reset the resolution have failed. Here's how it went down. I was working with nvidia driver. Already was frustrated I couldn't get a working wide screen setting for my toshiba hd tv/monitor but that's a seperate issue. I was trying to get the driver to recognize my separate monitor to an hd tv in the living room using the video out. works fine with windows. I got it to recognize, it made me save settings, and then restart. Note resolution settings are set to automatic right now. Then when I restart, I get to ubuntu splash screen, it plays the chime, and shows a blank black screen. Control alt f1 brings me the menu.
I have been told to type (this is just quick type, I used the proper commands in reality) sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phighxserver - xorg xrandr --output lvds --mode 1024x768
I found one article that gave a three step process. sudo cp /etc/x11/xorg.conf / etc/x11/xorg.conf.custom sudo sh -c 'md5sum ' etc'/x11/xorg.conf > /var/lib/x11/xorg.conf.md5sum' sudo dpk-reconfigure xserver-xorg.
Nothing gave me any of the results I expected from command doesn't exist to completely irrelevant menus. Start me from the beginning to what I should do. Yes I logged in properly with my username and password to. Do the 'etc' in the command need to be filled with something else like a drive letter or something. I'm so lost, should I disconnect my tv? Also I tried running in safe mode and it said something about display not found.
Every time I start up Docky, it blacks out the bottom part of the screen, and gives me a notice that says, "Docky requires compositing to work properly. enable compositing and restart Docky." How would I do this?
It happens before,put normally it'll disappear after several second, As the title said, every time I execute "xrandr -o right" ,the screen rotates but the top half turns to a black screen.I click the unity and it can appear on the area,the cursor appears too. I was't sure if the problem was caused by natty or not,so let's find out.
I am using a emachine w2925 desktop and I installed the newest ubuntu. And it randomly goes to a black screen with white bars vertically half way down the screen that flash between bars and a black screen every few seconds.
I recently installed my first distro, Gnome Ubuntu Linux 10.04 via WUBI dual-booting alongside my Windows. I decided to try the other desktop environments. So I installed Kubuntu-Desktop (KDE) and Xubuntu-Desktop (XFCE) using Synaptic Package Manager.
However, Kubuntu KDE changed the boot splash screen into a from the default Ubuntu one, to the Kubuntu one. Also Xubuntu XFCE changed the log-in screen to the Xubuntu one. I DO NOT want these changes. I just wanted Normal Ubuntu-branded Ubuntu Linux with the option of logging in into the desktop environment of my choice.
'm trying to duel boot windows 7 and ubuntu 11.04 on an Acer Aspire 5736, but when I try to boot from the cd (which I burned with InfraRecorder) it first goes to a black screen with a blinking under score in the corner, then to a purple screen with a couple symbols at the bottom, and then the screen goes black and nothing else ever happens
When installer is loading linux kernel and it goes to 100%, the next thing that I can see is black screen and can just use shut-down button. This situation appears about 90% tries. After 7 reboots I installed Suse successful but the problem appears also now. Just after select Suse in GRUB, the screen print some text about half a second and it goes black. Sometime I can start system normal. I use openSUSE 11.3 Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz, 4gb ram, Geforce 8600M GT graphic card
My little girl played with my keyboard and mouse and moved my entire screen to upper section. I tried everything, and can't figure it out how to bring it down. I see black color trough half of my display. I can go blindly in upper section without being able to see, and from time to time click the shut down bottom. Do you any of you have idea how to fix it? Ubuntu rocks, I love it, very stable, solid rock.I twill never use anything else.
Gateway SB400a computer with Edubuntu Lucid installed. The problem first cropped up when I installed the Edubuntu packages on Ubuntu. I did a fresh install with Edubuntu and the problem persists. I don't want to go back to Ubuntu since this computer is for my Grandkids and I want to the Edubuntu stuff for them.
I don't have the specs handy, but I can get them. what I have to do to get them. (it happens when you get old)

I just decided to completely switch from windows 7 to Ubuntu 10.4. I wiped windows 7 and attempt to install 10.4. it installed half way and gave me an error "cd drive disk error". So I then downloaded 10.10 and burned iso image on a brand new cd disk. Now I am trying to install 10.10 (latest version), and its stuck on Ubuntu Splash screen for last half an hour. It does not seem to be doing anything. What shud I to complete the install?
I just installed Kubuntu 10.10 x64. I copied de .conkyrc from my Ubuntu install, where it worked fine, to my Kubuntu install. But now, it's quite awfull. I've put a screen at the bottom of the post.[URL]
I tried to fix splash screen resolution on boot up in 10.04 from instructions I found on the net. I updated lines in grub. Now when I boot I see the dual boot menu but hit linux i just get a black screen. I can't get into my system from there.
I've been using Ubuntu for about two years now, then suddenly today (after my PC accidently lost power) the screen resolution changed to 800x600 (it is, in fact, a widescreen monitor, and this resolution looked 'zoomed in'). The only two resolutions detected with xrandr were in the 4:3 ratio (800x600 and something worse). I followed some instructions, trying to reset the resolution to 1024x576.
I got as far as
$ xrandr --newmode "1024x576" ...
$xrandr --addmode default 1024x576
but when I
$xrandr --output default --mode 1024x576
I a message to the effect of 'your screen can only support 800x600 or less'. Ah-ha, I thought, you stupid machine; this screen has had a greater resolution for over a year.
And so, from System->Preferences->Monitor, I forced the computer to switch to this new resolution. When prompted, I reset.
My current problem is that when I turn the computer on, the monitor displays a floating 'Input Not Supported' sign. I Ctrl+Alt+F1'd, and now all 'xrandr' and 'cvt' commands return:
Can't Open Display
My first priority is to get the computer back to it's less-broken 800x600 state;
A few minutes ago, I was connected to my remote machine running Ubuntu 10.10. I changed the resolution of the screen while connected with VNC, but now I can't connect to the remote machine. How can I fix this without leaving my house?
so here's the deal. A few minutes ago, I was connected to my remote machine running Ubuntu 10.10. I changed the resolution of the screen while connected with VNC, but now I can't connect to the remote machine.
Ok, so here's the deal. A few minutes ago, I was connected to my remote machine running Ubuntu 10.10. I changed the resolution of the screen while connected with VNC, but now I can't connect to the remote machine.
I changed may graphic card, earlier I used NVIDIA FX5500 with nvidia driver, now I was trying to use ATI Radeon 7500, but there are problems with graphic configuration. At first attempt server started but after I changed a screen resolution the monitor went blank. I restarted a computer but after the X server started immediately the monitor wnet blank. I found that for completely for me unknown reasons Xorg was trying to use an NVIDIA glx module with radeon driver. I removed this nvidia driver, I expected ubuntu would be able automatically to set up a proper configuration, but instead of ubuntu complained about a missing driver. I also tried manually to set up some basic config using Xorg -configure but after that the Xorg server was stuck.
I have been using ubuntu 10.04 64 bits for about 3 month. Today I change my keyboard layout, so I want to test if everything is ok so I reboot my computer. When I try to reboot everything is as usual but the problem is that after grub. Nothing only a black screen no matter what i do. I doubt the keyboard layout change something but who knows. I run AMD phenom 940 X 4, 4 gig ram, Ati radeon HD 4870.
The new NVIDIA drivers don't seem to work as seamlessly as back in Jaunty and before. In Lucid when I activated the drivers I had to do some grub tweaks to make my splash look normal... But with Maverick it is even more messed up...
Problem: The splash either doesn't appear at all (black screen) or it appears in the text format rather than graphics... In some instances it even hopelessly tried to load the graphics splash - loaded the background but the instead of Ubuntu logo and the progress-bar animation it displayed a "Ubuntu 10.10" in a monospace font.
i changed the boot up resolution in the boot up loader to 1366*768 (native res of my monitor) the boot option is still set to quiet splash however, instead of showing the progress bar, it would now always display the complete boot up log ( the list of starting services and such) i then manually changed the boot option from to 1024*768 at boot loader screen, and teh splash would show up, but then on next boot up if i stick with 1366*768, it doesnt work again
When i boot my pc there is a black screen and then a message appears (initlymouth-splash main process(856) terminated with status 1) Some other times only this appears '' _ '' blinking (i don't remember how it is called in english,sorry) I hold Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then the screen where i choose profile comes up. I have 10.04 since they came out,and didn't have any problem except one issue with my belkin adaptor,but now i can't sync my iphone with rhythmbox or detect any flash sticks.
