Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Update Crashed - Black Screen On Reboot

May 3, 2011

I tried to update my main computer from Ubuntu 10.0 to 11.04. I wish I could remember what it said, but it crashed during the update. The lights on the keyboard were flashing on and off as well. When I try to boot, all I get is a black screen and flashing lights. The Ubuntu recover also has the same thing. I am going to try a fresh install. For some reason I am leaning to the power manager, but I am no where near sure.

Fedora :: Update To F12 - Screen Black After Reboot

May 10, 2010

I just updated from FC 10 to FC 12 via install/upgrade disk, and when re-booted the screen is then black (at the point that it should display logins). I think it may be due to nvidia driver in FC 10 not being upgraded, because I think I compiled it from nvidia rather from yum install. Anybody else have this problem? BTW, it is a dual boot with Win XP, but has never caused a similar problem before.

I did a system update earlier in the day, but I have a hard time thinking this is connected to it:

Is there something I can do to get back to my desktop? Is there a way I can access my documents, at least?

Fedora Installation :: Getting The Black Screen After Update?

Sep 1, 2010

yesterday I updated the system, and that involved kernel After rebooting, the progress bar goes fine, but when finished the screen flickers a little and goes black. I can't switch to other terminals via Ctrl + Alt + Fx, so I'm using remote access via ssh. I thought it could be nvidia issue, so I updated kmod modules with rpmfusion-nonfree-updates-testing, and when booting nothing complains, but I'm still getting black screen. Xorg log doesn't seems to complain (no errors (EE)).

Ubuntu Installation :: Black GRUB Screen After Update Manager Run?

Sep 3, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed on dell inspiron 5150. Original installation was perfect. Wireless Internet worked right away. Screen resolution was perfect. One day, after a month or so, after original installation I got a notification that new updates are available. So, I installed all updates. At the end there was a notification: Update is successful, please reboot. After reboot I got a black screen with the header:

GNU GRUB version 1.98-1ubuntu7(I hope it's not a ubuntu version of windows blue death screen). I could install 10.04 from scratch, but I can not do it after every update.

Fedora Installation :: Black Screen After Automatic Update?

Jun 25, 2009

I should have know, it's named after a windows "feature".On my laptop (Acer Aspire 5310) Fedora 10 offered me an automatic update to Fedora 11. Because I trust any automatic update Fedora brings to me (it's tested right) I automatically pressed yes. It started some downloads and everything seems to run pretty smooth. Then I had to reboot the computer, press that button as well.... and it reboots into Fedora 10 (untill the end of the bar). After that I have no clue what happens, because before X is started I get a black screen with nothing on it, even ESC doesn't do anything :O I don't even get the "_" to indicate the laptop is doing anything.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Freezes At Black Screen After Update

Mar 12, 2009

Tried the DVD install for 10. Install went fine other than it take for freakin ever, but after an 1 hour install, the update wanted to install 1675 or so updates. I let those updates install. 5 hours later the updates were done. Rebooted and now it freezes at a blank screen right after the 3 scrolling bars. System is older AMD 3000+, 1 GIG RAM with NVidia 5700 video card.

I did try and search some. But the only thing I could find was something about editing my grub file for a scan=sync setting (the information was basically gibberish to me. No clue what it was talking about or how I would edit a file on a system that won't boot). I tried to recover mode off the live CD. It had some options that said you could type Linux command line arguments, but whenever it got to the sysimage it says Linux isn't a command.

Nov 12, 2010

16GB RAI've been running the Debian-based Proxmox VE on it for six months or so with no problems.Today I loaded Centos 5.5 x64. During a reboot, the file system crashed and fsck couldn't repair.I loaded it again, did all the updates, and loaded my applications. On about the third reboot, it crashed again and fsck couldn't fix it.I don't really know where to begin. I doubt seriously that any hardware has went bad since yesterday.

Software :: Virtualbox On Sid - VM - The Screen Goes Black Then Computer Completely Stops Responding - Needs Hard Reboot

Jan 13, 2010

So I'm in need of VM'ing a couple OS's to keep from repartitioning and dual booting my desktop. The first I'm trying to boot is a 64bit version of windows (have XP and 7 disc, trying XP for now) as I need to convert some of my work's ancient programs that still use DOS functions.

I choose Virtualbox over VMware just for the sake of VB being in the repos. Install and initial config went fine, but when I try to start (run) the VM the screen goes black, then the computer completely stops responding and needs a hard reboot. Pasting what I believe to be the error part in the log. If you need the entire log I can email or host it - too big for a post. Kernel Version - 2.6.32-trunk-amd64. Debian Sid

Ubuntu Installation :: Computer Crashed During 11.04 Update

May 1, 2011

I was updating Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and my computer crashed/shutoff because of overheating(my laptop doesn't ever do this when running Windows 7 but seems to really need to be as cool as possible when running Ubuntu). the update was at about 12-18 minutes left(also i am using wubi to have it run alongside windows). After getting pissed off that i forgot to backup Ubuntu i restarted it to see if it would finish updating.

To my dismay it the loading screen looked a bit unusual and when it go to the login screen the word "Ubuntu" was flashing uncontrollably and the time in the bottom right corner was acting the same. i feel that i have totally ruined it and i also don't know how i can remove Ubuntu from my computer so that i could reinstall it as Ubuntu 11.04 instead of upgrading from 10.10. i still have Wubi.exe for Ubuntu 10.10 but i'm not sure if that just searches for the most recent version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Update Crashed Evolution Database?

Nov 30, 2010

I always install the Ubuntu Updates that automatically pop up every few days.

Today I installed the update and it wiped out my entire Evolution database.

The Evolution e-mails and e-mail history are still there, but not a single Contact.

Is there any way to 'uninstall' today's update or go back to a time before it was implemented?

Is anyone else having this problem? I do have a database backup, but its about a month old. So I don't want to import it unless there is no way to get the current version back.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Running Apt-get Update?

Aug 2, 2011

I got sick of unity yesterday and tried to install Gnome3. While doing this, i ran apt-get update. I believe that this updated my xorg to 1.1+ (or whatever) making it incompatible with the proprietary ATI drivers I'm running. So I tried a whole bunch of stuff, from reinstalling the drivers from the ttyl1 prompt, to doing startx from the command line and using synaptic to remove the proprietary drivers and install radeon, etc, etc.I think the issue right now is that there are bits of the proprietary driver left that are messing with the open source driver. Whenever I do startx, i get artifacting all over the screen, which never seems to go away.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen In Lucid (10.04) After Patch Update?

Sep 2, 2010

Yesterday, 9/1/2010, I received a bunch of patch updates for 10.04 (64-bit) and applied them to my laptop (Dell Latitude E6510, Intel Core i5). After they applied, it asked me if I wanted to reboot now or later. I chose later to finish my work and then shut my laptop off. This morning, I turned it on, only to get a black screen during bootup and also during login. I know it's working behind the scenes because I can hear the drum sound when it's ready to login and I can still press the power button and hit enter to shut it down. I tried using Alt+F2->F12 but it would only show a black screen.

My temporary workaround was to hold the shift button during startup to get the grub menu and then select the older 2.6.32-23 kernel to bootup instead of the newer 2.6.32-24. I am able to boot ok in the older kernel and it's working fine, but I don't know what is causing the problem for the newer one and cannot boot into that one.

I believe I was running 2.6.32-24 fine up until I received a bundle of patches to apply to my system. So the question is, is there a way to figure out what patches were applied in yesterday's bundle so I can back them out? If not, how can I fix this so I can run the newer updated kernel?

Ubuntu :: After Applying An Update, Getting A Black Screen At Login?

After applying an update about two or three days ago, I restarted my system and now I'm getting a black screen at login. I can hear the brief drum sound clip that plays when the login dialog box pops up, but the screen is completely black and I can't see anything. I'm still able to access low graphics mode via the fail-safe option in the recovery mode menu. So far I've tried the following commands in the terminal:

sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-
