Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen After Login After Upgrade To 10.04 Beta?

Mar 28, 2010

I just upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 beta and now I get the login screen - but after logging in, all I get is a blank screen with a black bar on top showing just the time on the top right hand corner. If I CTRL+ALT+F1 and reboot using the command line, it restarts showing mythbuntu on shutdown. Im have nVidia GEForce 8600 - is this due the X crashing? I tried all these - no change

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install -f

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen After Upgrade 10.10->11.04

May 1, 2011

I have a Toshiba Satellite P105. Did the upgrade. Everything went smooth until the reboot. After that the deep black. I am suspecting Nvidia driver. "F" key maneuver brings a flash of the booting process. That is quickly followed by a mosaic screen and a numb computer.

Other than nuking the system and re-installing 10.10 any constructive idea?

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen After Upgrade Restart

Jan 22, 2011

I had a working ubuntu 8.04.x system. I ran the update manager to upgrade to 10.04.1 LTS. Everything seemed to run fine up to the point where it needed a restart. Upon restart, it spews out a stream of log messages, changes the font of the log messages already displayed, and then the screen goes blank and the system does not respond to keyboard or mouse. It appears as if the system is trying to set up the monitor and messes up.

If I ESC into grub after BIOS boot, I have the option of booting two different kernels: 2.6.32-27-generic and 2.6.24-28-generic. The original ubuntu 8.04 kernel was 2.6.24-24-generic(though I did do some updates might that be the 24-28 kernel?).

Booting the 32-27 kernel results in the behavior described above.

Booting the 24-28 kernel produces a stream of log messages that scroll past to fast to read and drops into ash. One of the last messages is: !ALERT /dev/disk/by-uuid/ xxxxxx does not exist -which is true because there is very little in the /dev directory.

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen / Errors Trying To Upgrade ATI Catalyst Drivers

Jan 29, 2010

So xorg was acting up, and I went into the Hardware Drivers menu to see if the driver had a problem. The driver was disabled, and could not be activated. I downloaded the new ATI driver. I uninstalled the old one, installed the new one, and ran the config step just like it specifies in the install instructions. Upon reboot, I got a blank screen instead of the login screen.I managed to drop back to the command line and uninstall the driver, so now I'm stuck in ubuntu with one monitor instead of 2.

I'm going to attempt to revert to the old ATI driver (which I still have in my home dir), but I wanted to be sure to get this into the forums before I ruined my GUI again.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 - Greeted With A Blank Screen With 6 Blinking Dots After Upgrade

Mar 21, 2010

Neomagic 256ZX(I think) video card, 256 MB RAM Well, after the upgrade went fine, I rebooted and was greeted by a purple 10.4 screen, after which I was greeted with a blank screen with 6 blinking dots. I don't know if this is a new video driver failure (its a pretty old laptop, theres no need for new drivers) or if its a grub problem. Since I can't get to a grub it goes BIOS>Purple 10.4>nothing and I don't get a terminal login, the laptop is now considered bricked. However I was okay with the install and was wondering if theres a way to fix it.

General :: Blank Screen And No Login After FC12 Installation On Dell E6410

Jun 3, 2010

I am trying to put FC12 on a new Dell E6410 (laptop) with video "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0046 (rev 02)". I used the Live disk and successfully installed, but then I updated. Thereafter when I boot I get a black screen. I cannot even get to the login.

Unfortunately I really do not know where to start to try to trouble shoot. (I can get into run level 3 on the latest kernel). Also the issue seems to come about from kernel to kernel since the blank screen issue does not arise in the former. For now I switched the order of these kernel in GRUB so the older one boots first and this seems to work.

Although the blank screen is my most pressing issue, I am having others too (synaptic mouse, wifi, suspend, internal camera). Well, hopefully once I can run the newest kernel these issue will disappear.

Ubuntu Installation :: Sticky: Graphics Resolution - Upgrade / Blank Screen After Reboot

Jun 11, 2011

I have tried the tips, and to the best of my ability understand the later posts from the sticky post "Graphics Resolution" however I seem to keep reverting back to the blank screen. I did this:

Quote: ATI TIPS: Note that some ATI cards need flgrlx and some do not... If not then this workaround sometimes works: (Found this in another thread / credit to Quote: Originally Posted by surgus View Post

1. When the boot hangs, press ctrl+alt+f1.
2. Login as user with root privileges.
3. Type "cd /usr/share/ati" and press enter.
4. Type "sudo sh ./fglrx-uninstall.sh" and press enter.
5. Type "sudo reboot".

The above only works for some but not all, depending on what card you have and whether it actually is supported by additional drivers (proprietary). All at the moment, mostl seem to need "nomodeset radeon mode=X", where x= 0 or 1... Some ATI cards are not working with the current natty kernel, but are working with the older 2.6.37 kernel or the proposed 2.6,38.9 kerne (please see post 2)l Sometimes (rarely) it'll work but more often it won't, and in the two times it's worked I haven't known how to get it to remember the setting permanently- keep in mind I have no idea what that last paragraph about x= 0 or 1 means.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade To 12 From 11 - Screen Goes Blank With Alot Of Disk Activity

Dec 15, 2009

I attempted to do the upgrade from 11 to 12 with the Preupgrade Assistant. Unfortunatly something went terribly wrong. Everything went well, excluding the size of partition error, untill the reboot. I did have to remove two previous installs. Now grub gives me an option to upgrade to Fedora 12. When I select this the screen runs code quickly and the screen goes blank with alot of disk activity. Then nothing. Is there a method of recovering this install? I am fairly new to Linux Administration and I am just knowledgable enough to mess things up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen: 10.04, ATI Radeon 9550 / X Tries To Load Screen Just Goes Blank?

May 9, 2010

I am having the same problem, as soon as X tries to load my screen just goes blank. I have an ATI Radeon 9550. At first I tried switching between VGA and DVI as well but upon ruling that out, I switch to my on-board video card and that is working thus far, but I'm trying very hard to figure out a way to be able to switch back. Anyways I'll check back in later on if I have any new information I will post.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade To FC13 - Initial Boot Failed - Just Blank Screen

Sep 19, 2010

I have just upgraded my FC12 installation to FC13. The initial boot failed (just blank screen). Second time I received 'selinux targeted policy relabel is required'. I let that run, but still the boot did not suceed.

I then went in to verbose boot and saw that the boot would hang at libvirtd. So I disabled libvirtd for anything above run level 1. Next boot failed at atd, disabled atd. Next boot failed at 'monthly Smolt checkin'.

At that point and booted in to single user mode and dissabled SELinux, thinking that was the cause of all the problems. That did not help.

The update process has also removed my previous kernels, so I can't test a different kernel

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get To Login Screen After Upgrade On Karmic

Jul 14, 2010

I did an upgrade on my system yesterday. After the completion of the upgrade on restarting the system the computer enters tty1 mode straight without giving me the GUI login screen making it difficult for me to work. The question does now is what could have caused this to happen ? Have i gottten something wrong somewhere?

To switch to tty7 mode i hit the key crtl+alt+7 but it gives an error message about an unknown user even after login in with my username and password on tty1. Start the computer on recovery mode and selected the option correcting broken packages and it produced a result requiring me to download some new packages. I have a huawei e1550 modem which i use to browse in Nigeria. I want to know how i can connect to the internet on the tty1 after insertion of the modem so i can download the necessary packages it requested on issuing dpkg command

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.04 - Login Screen Crash?

Oct 30, 2010

Today I was prompted to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.1, and then again to 10.04

Doing these upgrades wreaked havoc on my system. I have been able to fix most of the problems that were caused but I am having trouble finding information on the following:

When I boot up the system and after passing the GRUB loader, the system freezes up at the login screen and I have to power down.

If I hit ESC at the GRUB screen and choose Kernel 2.6.32-25-generic (recovery mode) and then choose "failsafe graphic mode", then I am able to log in to GNOME as normal.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen After Login?

Nov 16, 2010

I have dabbled with Linux in the past. Previously I have failed to get various important parts of my laptop to work under Ubuntu, but that one died, so I decided it was time to try again.

It seemed to work on the liveCD, so I went for the install, which also seemed to go ok, but when I start up, I get to log in, then it stops. Plays the start-up sound, displays a blank desktop background, but nothing else...

Ubuntu :: GUI Is Broken - Just Blank Screen After Login

Jan 28, 2010

Using Karma and kubuntu -single boot. When I restarted my machine, the login appeared as usual and I entered my usual password but it was not accepted . I tried several times including making sure that caps lock / num lock etc were not invoked.

I then rebooted into recovery mode and let it run its course. When I rebooted and input my login password, I can get a bit further. The login is accepted but the GUI opens with a blank wallpaper and the terminal prompt window open at the keevill@keevill-desktop.

The ls command shows the name of the files which are on the desktop but they are not visible on the GUI nor are any other icons for applications. It seems like the kubuntu GUI is broken or something. I tried uninstall and then re-install but just the same. If I am forced to re-install Ubuntu I guess this means I lose all my settings and applications will have to be all installed again ?? How can I avoid this?

Ubuntu :: After Login Screen Goes Blank Then To TTY2 - No GUI

Sep 2, 2010

Right after logging in, as the graphics starts up the screen goes blank then goes to tty2 with a login prompt and no graphics at all. I have Kubuntu 10.04.1 I used the standard Kubuntu install disc. The Computer is a Compaq dm 220mt desktop 2.80 Ghz, 1.2 GB Ram, 40 GB Hard drive. I originally had Ubuntu 8.04 on it and it ran perfect. So I decided to do a fresh install of Kubuntu 10.04 and it worked great for a day or two, then this issue happens. I am able to log in tty and tried "sudo startx" in hope of getting my graphics back. I get the following errors "Fatal Server error No screens found" and "xinit no such file or directory (errno 2)" and unable to connect to server..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Login Screen Is Blank

Nov 1, 2010

I just got rid of my Dell P990 CRT and replaced it with a Samsung B2330H LCD. I got the resolution changed to 1920x1080 at 60hz through System/Preferences/Monitors and the new display looks great! There is one problem, though: the computer boots into a resolution that is not supported by the new monitor. As a result, the login screen is blank. The monitor puts a little floating message on the screen that says, "Optimum Resolution is 1920x1080..." When I start up, I hear the "bongo sound" and I hit ENTER, then enter my password, then ENTER again, and the computer desktop appears in 1920x1080 and all is well. But how do I get the login screen to appear in 1920x1080?

This is Ubuntu 10.4, using the Intel onboard card. Here's the output of lspci:


I have installed the Startup Manager, but it does not allow 1920x1080 to be selected. I have also tried using Startup Manager to select other resolutions, but the login screen is still blank.

Isn't there some trick to force the login screen to appear in a specific resolution using xrandr? What file does this command go into? Maybe my old configuration files from my Dell monitor are interfering?

Code: Could not calculate the upgrade

An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be
caused by held packages.

This can be caused by:

* Upgrading to a pre-release version of Ubuntu

* Running the current pre-release version of Ubuntu

* Unofficial software packages not provided by Ubuntu

If none of this applies, then please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the files in /var/log/dist-upgrade/ in the bug report.
