Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Install - Running A NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 Video Card

Jul 28, 2010

I just got done installing Ubuntu on a new harddrive and set it up to dual boot with grub loader. However, when I boot into Ubuntu, the screen goes black. I can however login (blind) by hitting enter and typing password. The login sound goes and it logs in, however, the screen stays black. I am running a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 295 Video Card.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Dual Monitor Video Card - NVidia Quadro FX 580?

Nov 24, 2010

I have repeatedly installed CentOS 5.5 64-bit on a Dell T3500 with an nVidia Quadro FX 580, in an attempt to get dual monitor support to work to no avail. Everything works fine when just one monitor is plugged in and I do not try to enable or plug in a second monitor. I have installed the Dell DKMS, and the Dell recommended drivers (from Dell site) on one installation, I installed the nVidia drivers (from nVidia site) on another, and have tried with what CentOS loads by default on another. The results are the same every time: When I reboot as directed I get a black screen. I can recover by hard shutdown and unplugging one of the monitors, but that doesn't solve my problem. Has anyone had a similar experience, or have any helpful guidance? I am not very Linux savvy. This is for multiple machines in a corporate environment.

Information for general problems.

Ubuntu :: Boot Up To Black Screen After Video Card Drivers Install

Mar 25, 2010

After having a lot of trouble with vista and no chance of getting Windows 7 anytime soon, I decided to get Ubuntu and use dual booting with vista. I had recently installed it about two days ago and for the most part it worked pretty well. That is until I installed the driver for my video card, an ATI Radeon HD2600 pro, then things went down hill for me. Every time I try and boot Ubuntu it now goes to a black screen after the logo comes up and i am unable to do anything. I have tried to look up some solutions, but I am still relatively new to programing and some of this stuff seems a bit complicated for me. Is there a simple solution to this that does not require a reinstall?

Red Hat / Fedora :: 12 External Hard Drive - Install Video Card Drivers Get Black Screen

Sep 17, 2010

i installed Fedora 12 on an external hard drive. Everything went fine with the installation and it was working perfectly until i tried to install my video card drivers. I have done this many times before and it has worked. I have an ATI card. Anyway after installing the driver i rebooted and now when it starts it show the loading bar on the bottom but then nothing happens its just a black screen!. The worst part is that when i go into windows and my external is plugged in windows wont read it and i have very valuable data on it. I go into disk management and it shows up but windows says that its empty. which is obviously not true because Fedora starts to boot. I really just want Fedora off my external and for windows to read my external with all the files still on it. Is there a way to get by that blank screen?

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Quadro NVS 135M - Poor Video?

Jan 24, 2011

Like the title says, I have the Quadro NVS 135M in my Dell D630. It's working (well, besides the startup screen issue - Plymoth... not a fan!), but when I watch a movie the image ?flickers? annoyingly. This is something I have never experienced before, with allegedly ?inferior? video cards. It's odd though, isn't it - better video card, inferior output!?!

Ubuntu :: NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450 - Blank Screen

Oct 5, 2010

I have just bought a Dell Optiplex 960 with a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 450. Everything works out of the box with the 10.04.1 Live CD. It suggests to install and activate NVIDIA proprietary drivers, but you need to restart the machine afterwards. The problem is that, after that, all what you get is a blank screen, with not even a cursor. The same happens when you install Lucid: blank screen with no cursor. Ctrl+F1 does not show anything, but Ctrl+Alt+Prnt Scrn+REISUB works and the PC is reset. In the var directory the logs show that the NVIDIA module is not loaded.

Ubuntu :: Video Card Driver And Black Dos Like Screen?

Jan 29, 2011

I am making a switch over to Ubuntu from windows on one of my kids machines.It has a Nvidia video card, a g-force fx 440 i believe, or something like that.Anyway I just loaded up Ubuntu 10.10 and and it seems it does not recognize my video card. If i go tosystem>administration>Additional drivers, the dialog comes back with "No proprietary drivers are used on this system. Ok so now I go to Ubuntu Software center and search nvidia..... I get the option to installl Nvidia binary x.org driver (version 185), I do so

Now in the Additional drivers dialogue it tells me "this driver is active and currently in use". Awsome, Now when I click on Nvidia X Server settings under system>Administration I get the following dialogue."You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server."If i do what that last message said, run sudo nvidia-xconfig in the terminal, It gives an error saying the xconfig file is not there, and it will create one. The next time I reboot Ubunut just shows a black dos like screen asking for username and password. If i put it in, it does nothing, I end up having to re-install ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: New Video Card Results In Black Screen?

Aug 20, 2011

My EVGA 7600GT video card suddenly died. A friend gave me an EVGA GeForce 8400GS to replace. I'm running a homemade AMD Athlon 64 3700 box with 2 GB memory and 2- 250 GB WD hard drives. First drive has Win XP OS and second drive runs Ubuntu 10.04. I was using Ubuntu about 99% of the time before the video failed. After installing new vid card, I deleted old driver in Win and installed new driver off the CD that came with the card. Windows system was then 100% back to normal.

My grub booter is set up to default boot to Ubuntu with Windows the last choice which can be done manually. After installing new Win video driver and confirming it worked, I re-booted the computer and let it go to Ubuntu. The results was the usually flashing cursor for about 10 seconds, but instead of the Ubuntu splash screen popping up, the monitor went black for about a minute and then shut off the same as if I had shut down the computer.

That was over a week ago, Since then I have tried everything I can think of but nothing changes. I have read and tried numerous ideas from other posts on these forums (such as hitting ctrl, alt, +/- to change screen resolution) but I still have a black screen.

I tried booting up from my original install CD which is ver 9.10, not 10.04 (I upgraded to 10.04 by directly downloading online and never made a 10.04 CD). I can get into an Ubuntu desktop with that old CD and I checked to see that it showed the highest resolution for my monitor (a 22" wide flatscreen whose native resolution is high-1920x1280?? don't exactly remember at the moment). I also tried loading the generic Nvidia 185 driver but it didn't seem to take. I downloaded the latest Nvidia driver for Linux onto a thumb drive and tried to install it here, but was refused because the message said it had to go into "root" and I didn't have permission. I don't know how to establish permission when booting from an old install CD. I'm sure I have administration rights under my regular 10.04 installation but can't see it due to the blank screen.

I've tried at boot to go to the recovery mode listed right below the default Ubuntu boot option, but when I do, a whole series of text flashes on the screen and rolls down to the word "done" with a flashing cursor at the very end, The cursor flashes for about 5 seconds and then the screen goes black. I've tried to enter some quick text at the cursor to keep it from going black, but it doesn't stop it. It wants to go black and it does so.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install Nvidia Drivers For Nvidia 8800 GT Video Card

Apr 3, 2011

I can't figure out how to install the nvidia drivers for my nvidia 8800 GT video card. I've followed some other posts and all the posts seemed either incomplete, or led me down a path of which eventually broke my installation, that I needed to reinstall the entire ubuntu system.Again, it may not have been broken, i just didnt know how to get back in to the gui version of ubuntu, the instructions took me to the console terminal

1.) I've installed the ubuntu 10.10 64bit for i386 in an oracle virtualBox..

2.) downloaded from nvidia.com "NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.44.run"

3.) Stuck don't know what to do.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Uninstalling Video Card Driver / Black Screen

Jan 4, 2011

I recently swapped a hard drive from another computer I was using.The previous computer had nVidia video card (i think it was 9500? something like that), and the new computer has an ATI Radeon 4200 HD video card. Now, when I boot it up on my new comp using the same hard drive, I get a black screen and my monitor just switches from digital, analog, hdmi. I'm guessing that the video card drivers are still installed, but I cannot switch back the hard drive since my other comp is far away from where I live. If I boot up with ubuntu CD however, it loads fine.

I have many important files on the previous install though, and I'm not sure how to get to it. I wouldnt mind reinstalling ubuntu as long as I can get those files back.

Hardware :: Nvidia Quadro 980 XGL CentOS 5.4 Driver Install Automation Ks.cfg?

Jan 19, 2010

Im trying to add the binary NVIDIA-Linux-x86-96.43.14-pkg1.run in my CentOS 5.4 ks.cfg file. The problem is that when you manually run the program it asks you questions and you have to respond with ok if you agree to their licensing terms. I want to be able to include this binary in my kickstart so when my machine boots up for the first time this driver is already installed and I don't have to waste time troubleshooting video issues. Is there anyway I can do this?

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. 'nomodeset' only allows me to boot ubuntu in low-graphics mode (which I'm in now) and this fix hasn't produced a solution either: [URL]..64&postcount=9 My netbook has nVidia ION2 graphics with an integrated as well as a discreet graphics card (Intel GMA3150 and NVIDIA GT21

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Black Screen Afer Install Booting With Nomodeset

Nov 30, 2010

Running ubuntu 10.10, had to use nomodeset to successfully boot from cd into "Try ubuntu without installing" thing and install ubuntu.

Edited grub by adding nomodeset after quiet and splash in order to boot from hard disk, still booting that way as I'm writing. The computer is an All In one Pc called ONETWOPWU44. The graphic card is an NVIDIA g210m.

After booting into hard disk I installed the proprietary driver resulting in an alternate of white then gray then black then an Image with red blue and some other colours on the screen, not sure of the order but they came one after an other, right when the login form should appear, I am then able to login by tipping my password into the form and pressing enter, I now that cause I can hear the sound when the system loads but the above described situation continues.

I had the same result with an older nvdia driver it was 253 something, don't remember exactly. Then I downloaded the 260.19.21 driver from nvdia website and installed it, with this one I only got a black screen. I now have a fresh ubuntu 10.10 copy and would like to be guided in making this work. How do I install the driver corectly or how do I enable nouveau 3d support?

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 Installation :: Screen Goes Black - How To Install Actual Nvidia Drivers

Jan 3, 2011

I am using the actual "testing", Debian works in version 5 on my notebook (or at least starts), but I can't use it b/c I have too much new hardware what is already implemented in the testint Version. I already had debian 6 running but that wasn't the good way to do it.

I have an Alienware m17x R1, with a q9000, a nivida mobile 260gtx. I know that the Problem the basic Debian Driver for Nvidia cards is. It is enough if I can use at least the command line of Debian to install an actual Nvidida driver and get the system running. But that's not possible!

I solved it once, with plugging in an External Monitor to my Notebook, but I don't have one at home at the moment and honestly there must be a better way for. How to "let debian 6. use the Notebook Screen"?

Ubuntu Installation :: Using The Video Card Nvidia 7800GT On An AMD4200, MB T6100 - Unable To Install From The Iso?

May 3, 2010

Using the video card Nvidia 7800GT on an AMD4200, MB T6100, I am unable to install from the iso, as progression is halted by a video mode that is unviewable. (black and white rows). I can get to the "f6" menu, however once I attempt an install it fails. My main goal is to install Mythbuntu, however the problem seems to be with the Unbuntu install drivers.This post worked to get around this on version 6.10, however these instructions no longer work. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=379807

Is there any way to use the newest Nvidia drivers that should work from a new install CD? I do not see a command line option, which would seem to allow me to install and update and setup the distro, THEN add my drivers before I run xconf.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video Card Died New Card Boots To Black?

Jul 15, 2010

My video card developed problems, so I followed the suggestion in this thread:

Quote: Boot into recovery mode, then choose root, for a command prompt and enter
Code: dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

but my ubuntu 10.04 32-bit system still won't boot. Shortly after the ubuntu logo comes up, before the login, my screen goes black and there is no more video signal. What else can I do to reset the video configuration? The card only has this info on it: I could put the card back in the system, reboot, and then pre-configure the system to drop to the intel 865G on-board video, but the msi card has intermittent problems and will spontaneously re-boot several times during the first ten minutes of turning on the system.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 64bit On Dell Latitude E6410 I7 Nvidia VNS 3100M - Get A Black Screen

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to install OpenSuse 11.2 64bit on a new Dell Latitude E6410 notebook. This is the Intel i7 processor with 8 Gb of RAM and Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics. I can boot from my 64bit installer DVD, but once I choose either Live version, to test it out, or just go for Install, after the first selection screen where I can change the default video at the bottom, I just get a black screen, no video.

I can't find any info on installing Suse on this notebook, (I think its only be available for a couple of weeks now). What do I do to get the screen to show me the graphical installer, Or how do I make the KDE Live version run from the 64bit DVD. I also tried the 32bit version DVD, but it wouldn't give graphics either, so it seems like an X issue.

Debian Installation :: New Jessie Install Black Screen On Boot (AMD Video)

May 14, 2015

I installed jessie amd64 lxde to a thumb drive to use with a laptop. Vanilla install using the amd64 lxde live cd. Upon booting the usb system, I am presented with a black screen with blinking cursor. No grub screen, no ability to type any commands and no ability to switch to another terminal. I tried booting into the live cd and I could get into the intro splash screen. Booting to the live system from there would also hang at a black screen.

However, using the kernel parameter "nomodeset" from the splash screen did allow the live system to boot to the desktop. I booted the live system, mounted the usb system and chrooted into it. I edited /etc/default/grub to include "nomodeset" in the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT and GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX variables and then ran update-grub.

Upon reboot to the usb system the problem still occurred. The video card in question is a amd firepro 5800m which has an lspci line of mobile radeon 5000 series. This card was supported in wheezy and apparently works with the live system.
