Ubuntu Installation :: No Display After Upgrade To 9.10 (ATI Radeon)

Jan 23, 2010

I upgraded my HP Elitebook 6930p from 9.04 to 9.10. When X starts the display shows random lines. I can boot into "recover" mode from GRUB and get the command prompt. 9.04 worked fine so I'm pretty sure it's not the video card. The video card is ATI Radeon HD 3400.

Ubuntu :: 64 Bit 10.04 On Radeon HD 5750 - Display Fails During Installation

Aug 31, 2010

I just finished building my new machine. I've got windows 7 running just fine on it, but I wanted to dual boot Ubuntu 10.04. I downloaded the 64 bit iso and tried installing it from both a live cd and a usb drive. When I boot from either (cd or usb), I see the Ubuntu loading/boot screen, but after the data is loaded, my display goes black and seems not to be able to find a signal. I assumed initially that it was probably due to the fact that I was connecting to my tv by HDMI cable. I guessed that Ubuntu did not have HDMI drivers for my video card, ATI Radeon HD 5750, by default. Then today, my new monitor arrived and I switched to the DVI output on my video card. I assumed that this would allow me to boot and install. I was wrong. I experienced the same symptoms on my monitor via DVI as I did on my TV via HDMI. why my monitor drops the signal as soon as it leaves the loading/boot screen?

Debian Installation :: Radeon HD 4670 - Display Completely Dark In X

May 22, 2011

I want to get Debian stable working on an iMac 11,2 (previous model):

1/ Same problem as this one, but I solved it by installing the fglrx-driver
2/ New problem: magic mouse and wireless keyboard don't work - solution: install .38-kernel from backports
3/ New problem: fglrx for .38 requires linux-headers.38 requires linux-kbuild.38...

So again stuck with the vesa-driver. I'm quite happy with the wireless mouse and keyboard working, so I'd rather stay with linux-image.38.

Two possibilities:
1/ I get the radeon-driver working
2/ I get the fglrx-driver working

I'd prefer the first method, but as you can see in the log (infra), there's a version mismatch between the kernel and the radeon-module. Any ideas how to get around this?

Using the radeon-driver gives me the following EE's in xorg.0.log.old:
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] RADEONDRIGetVersion failed because of a version mismatch.
(EE) RADEON(0): Acceleration initialization failed
(EE) RADEON(0): clock recovery failed
(EE) RADEON(0): channel eq failed
(EE) GLX error: Can not get required symbols.

The las error is also shown as the only error when I use the VESA-driver; so clearly that is not the problem. I have tried without an xorg.conf, and the following xorg.conf won't work either:
Section "Module"
Load "glx"
Load "dri"
EndSection .....
I also tried the radeonhd-driver, but that doesn't change anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display After Upgrade 9.10

May 8, 2010

I upgraded ubuntu 9.10 from the update manager- it had a couple of problems, and now when I boot there's no display- I'm pretty sure it's just the graphics driver since it loads up and plays the login sound.I'm currently running off a CD version of 9.10 and when I chroot the drive with 10 and sudo apt-get upgrade it says there's some stuff that depend on fglrx, and that it's not there.There were proprietary drivers installed before the upgrade- Is there an easy way to just run with non-proprietary drivers? Or to install non-proprietary drivers to another drive?

(I don't really know what I'm doing, if I need to boot to recovery mode and do stuff could someone please tell me how to do that? The only info I can find is maybe possibly press Esc during the os boot and that doesn't seem to work for me)

Ubuntu Installation :: Shaking Display After Upgrade

Sep 10, 2010

I have a problem since an update some weeks ago but I cannot remember which one, because I thought it would get fixed so I didn't revert back.The display shakes very often depending on the type of window displayed and I think it has to do with the hardware driver (nvidia 185 restricted). Was there an update not long ago?

You can look at the problem there:http://www.......com/watch?v=Es0CVNmXGJ8.I had to record it with an external camera because using GTK-recordMyDesktop the recording is flawless.As you can see sometimes it's almost unusable.It has nothing to do with compiz or emerald or awn or any effect, because even with everything turned off I have the same problem.

Ubuntu :: No Display After Driver Uninstall - ATI Radeon

Sep 24, 2010

The last few weeks I have been dual monitoring from my lcd monitor to my hdtv. LCD was connected via vga and my tv via hdmi. To my knowledge, my pc has two graphic cards, both ATI Radeons. One I believe is on the mother board, ATI Radeon 4200HD series, and the other is in a PCI slot ATI Radeon 5600HD series. I think that when I had it dual monitored the tv was connected via 4200HD and LCD via 5600HD (could be wrong).

What I Did: Everything was working fine (i was mainly just using the HDTV as my only monitor and main monitor). As you can guess I was gaming on the hdtv, but I was not satisfied with the slight lag I felt. So I looked at forums to see what I could do and they mostly said 1) change settings on tv to game mode, 2) turn off vsync on your graphics card. So I did #1, but when I tried to do #2 I could not open my graphics cards "menu" aka CCC aka Catalyst Command Center.

So I read up on why this might happen and they said I should uninstall drivers and reinstall the drivers, so I did this as well (with most current drivers from the AMD site, version 10.9) and still I could not get into the CCC. As I was reading more forums, they were saying the 10.8 version mainly has this problem. So what I did was I downloaded 10.7 (did not install yet) and uninstalled the new 10.9. When I went to reboot the cpu after the uninstall of 10.9 there was no display on my HDTV.

I figured I just need to go back to my LCD which was still hooked up to my cpu. No display there as well. I tried dvi and vga hook ups from the monitor to both graphic cards but nothing worked to get me a display. I also tried my girlfriends monitor, which only has vga, to both graphics card and still nothing worked. So at this point I have NO display. After about an hour of trying different combinations of cords, monitors, plugs, tv's etc.,

I RANDOMLY somehow got a display with my girlfriends monitor vga to the 5600 card (I think). I had to hold the vga cord a certain way on attached to the monitor in order for the display to work. So since I had a display, I quickly installed 10.7. After installation, it did not prompt me to reboot (which I thought was weird) so I just went to properties and tried to change the resolution to the max 1600x something, to see how it looks. The screen went blank and the display never reappeared. Now I basically have NO DISPLAY again.

Ubuntu Installation :: Garbled Display After Upgrade To 2.6.32-* Kernel?

Feb 4, 2011

I used Ubuntu 9 (Karmic Koala) for some time with no problems. When I upgraded to Ubuntu 10 (Lucid Lynx) I ran into graphics issues.After I log in, the screen scrambles (a purple/green mess)--impossible to decipher anything, although I can get out by marking the spot on the screen to click for a restart, so Linux is working behind the scenes.If I start in recovery mode with basic graphics, I have no problems at all (other than limited functionality). If I start the old 2.6.31-22 kernel, I see a bunch of "unmountable" errors in the startup script, but I can use Linux normally with no apparent problems. I'm running an IBM ThinkPad A30 with ATI Mobility graphics. Just to reiterate, the screen looks fine until I log in, at which point it goes bonkers. I've tried lowering the resolution, to no avail. I'm not running any proprietary drivers. What do I need to change in order to fix this?

Ubuntu :: Radeon + Compiz + Rotate = Display Corruption

Apr 21, 2011

Installed Natty a few days ago and everything was working fine. I have a dual head setup with the left monitor rotated Clockwise 90 degrees (AKA rotate left). When I setup the the displays properly, instead of just cloning, I noticed a problem, making Unity unusable. When I apply the rotation either in the xorg.conf fle or using xrandr, the display shows a corrupt looking image. When I turn compiz off and use metacity instead it works perfectly fine.

Display Adapter:


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450]



Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Desktop"

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnucash Doesn't Display Account After 11.04 Upgrade

Apr 30, 2011

i have a large data file for gnucash of several years in age. when i did the upgrade, gnucash starts and loads, and the main account appears to load, but there is nothing displayed. just an empty gray space where the alternating colors of the ledger should be.the account listing loads, and i can view other smaller accounts just fine. but the main ledger does not display. however, if i click on some areas of the screen, it will display what i assume is the underlying text in the bottom status bar.

and when a window or some other graphic element 'over writes' any area, some remnants of the former image remain.

Fedora Hardware :: Replacing Radeon 9550 With Radeon X1300/X1550 - Low FPS

Apr 4, 2010

I replaced an ATI Radeon 9550 with a Radeon X1300/X1550, in hopes of better performance.

My System: P4@3GHz, 1.5Gb RAM, Fedora 12, kernel

Faults: Screen refresh is extremely low. Glxgears outputs 25 FPS. Dragging windows around is sometimes really slow.

What I did so far, in hope of fixing it:

1. Installed 'system-config-display', for providing an xorg.conf
2. Did: yum --enablerepo=rawhide update mesa-dri-drivers-experimental mesa*, fixing this, but to no avail...

I cannot find any errors in the log...I don't know what to do...

I am posting my Xorg.conf, Xorg.0.log and Glxinfo through links to pastebin.com


When running GlxGears, I get a bit of motion, and then the gears freeze for 1 second. And this goes on and on. But...if I move the mouse around, I get 1100FPS!

Now I messed a bit with xorg.conf and the "SWCursor" Option, but the above happens when this option is on "true". On "false" there is no 1100FPS, only the freezing loop...

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Upgrade GDM Multiple Display

Oct 20, 2010

I've a display issue after upgrading to 10.10 . I have a Dell Inspiron notebook with an ATI 1200 chip set. Prior to the 10.10 upgrade I could connect a higher resolution monitor to the VGA port and hit Function F8 to switch my display from the notebook display to the external display to take advantage of the higher resolution of the external display. With the 10.10 upgrade when I switch to the external display I have no window management functions, ie I can't resize or move windows because there is nothing to grab onto. If I click the show desktop icon I get a message to the effect that the function isn't available for GDM "unknown".If I used mirrored displays with the external and internal displays at the same resolution then I do have window management functions.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Upgrade Now No Signal To Display

Mar 2, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 on an IBM Intellistation Z Pro (64-bit).Install went smoothly.Upon restart, everything works fine up until the log-in screen. The normal hardware checks all run and the new white Ubuntu symbol appears but when it switches to the log-in screen, a "No signal" message appears on the display and the green power light goes orange.

I can still log-in remotely from another machine and access all the files and drives, run jobs etc., so the machine did start-up properly, it is just an issue with the display.

Ubuntu / Apple :: 2.6.31-17 Upgrade Has Broken Macbook Pro Display

Jan 9, 2010

Today I installed all the updates that were associated with the 2.6.31-17 kernel upgrade on Ubuntu 9.10.It appears the update has broken my stock 17-inch Macbook Pro 5,2 because after restarting my screen is just black. I don't see the ReFit choice menu (I have OS X and Ubuntu installed), and even when I let the machine boot all the way into Mac OS X the screen just remains black. The apple logo on the back of the screen doesn't turn on at all.

I can see the keyboard backlights eventually come on (which is normal when you get to Mac OS X login prompt) - so its almost as if its booting but just wont talk to the display. When you press the brightness buttons you can faintly see the shade of black changing.What the heck has happened? I just paid a big load of money for this baby and I'm very sad now I love Ubuntu but this is ridiculous.

Ubuntu :: Installed The Upgrade Lucid And Display Does Not Turn Off?

I just did the upgrade and I want to turn off the display after 30 minutes. I check that selection but the display does not turn off after 30 minutes. It is still on. I enabled this setting through the power management. The screen saver is on, go to blank display but the monitor does not turn off.

On Windows, dual boot on the same machine, the monitor does display off. I don't know if this is part of the problem or not, but when I go to "System -> Preferences", there are two different "Screensaver" options.

Ubuntu :: After Upgrade - Display - Getting A Small Box On Screen Saying OUT OF RANGE

Apr 30, 2011

I have just spent hours upgrading 10.10 to 11.04 Natty and when I rebooted at the end, all I'm getting is a small box on screen saying OUT OF RANGE.

I do not have grub or windows or anything else to boot into, ubuntu was my main system, what can I do?

I have just tried another monitor and get the same thing.

Is there anyway I can boot in safe mode or something?

I am able to boot PC with a live CD (Karmic) but cant acess most of my files because I am not the owner apparently? Cant change permissions either?

Is there a way I can change something using the live CD so that Natty will boot properly?

Ubuntu Installation :: SOL W/ATI Radeon 9550 & Ubu 10.04?

Sep 1, 2010

From looking at beaucoup posts, it appears I'm SOL trying to use the Linux drivers provided by AMD (See url.terminal command line "sh ./ati-driver-installer-9.2-x86.x86_64.run". Since I keep getting an error message saying the file can't be opened either as root or using sudo I guess there's no reason to continue.Anyway, I have my PC displaying on a CRT thru a s-video connection. The screen is overscanned, that is, part of both the left and right sides are not visible. That is why I wanted to load the Radeon drivers & Catalyst Control Center so I could shrink the screen width.Question: Should I keep trying to open the ATI file? SHould I install the Open Source ATI driver? Should I give up and try to find a nVidia AGP 8X card?
