Ubuntu Installation :: Nvidia 9300M GS - Purple Screen (loading Screen) With 4 Dots

Oct 25, 2010

I have been using ubuntu wel a long time now and I know my way around in linux but I recently updated my laptop from ubuntu 10.04 to ubuntu 10.10 all went fine until I had to restart my laptop. I got a purple screen (loading screen) with 4 dots and a oldskool like font which said: Ubuntu 10.10 Right after that the screen goes purple and its like the system halts I hear no login sound etc just a purple screen. So I did a clean install from the 10.10 live cd which booted perfectly fine and the system was also useable like before. But when I installed the system and rebooted it again no problems.

But when I tried to install the proprietary nvidia driver (the recommended one) I got the same problem again the purple screen. After searching a while on the internet I only found posts which had the problem with ATI cards but my laptop is fitted with a Nvidia Geforce 9300 M card. So I tried several things like removing the xorg.conf (read it somewhere) which ofcourse did not work, and booting in graphics fail safe mode which worked. So the point is in 10.04 and 9.10 I CAN use my video card drivers but not in 10.10 is there a solution to this problem? I am talking about the 32 bit version of ubuntu and here's my system hardware profile:

Intel core 2 duo t7350 @ 2,0 ghz / 3mb l2 cache
2 GB DDR3 ram
160 gb hdd
Nvidia 9300m gs
Chipset: I dont know sorry
Model: Samsung R710

Installation :: Ubuntu Won't Boot Past Loading Screen / Get This To Work?

Sep 4, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a Dell computer of mine but I can't get it to boot past the loading screen. I'm using 10.04 live CD. At the loading screen (boot, memory test, etc..) I select to boot the live CD and after that, I get a black screen followed by no signal from my monitor. My monitor is a 42" LCD TV (I had plans to turn this PC into a HTPC using Ubuntu and Boxee). I know Linux will work on this box, because it has in the past. Now, before I used to have an ATI Radeon X 1300 PCI-E card and now I am using an ATI Radeon 2900GT, and since cannot boot.

Does anyone have any idea on how I can get this to work?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Will Not Install: Cannot Get Past Five Red Dots?

Jun 12, 2010

I cannot install the newest Ubuntu, 64 or 32-bit. On the amd release, the intro with the five red dots appears, then it goes into a white background with multiple light-purple random lines, and quits there. On the 32-bit release, the purple screen appears with no menu, with an error message.My system has an AMD64 processor, two hard disks: one for Windows, one for Linux. I used to have Ubuntu Hardy Heron on it (not the LTS version), so I erased the drive.

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu Blue Screen On Shutdown Even Though Uninstalled KDE?

Everytime I shut down my netbook the blue Kubuntu Screen comes instead of the Red Ubuntu Screen. I don't want the Blue Kubuntu Screen, I want the RED Ubuntu Screen. How do I do this? I tried installing KDE and KDE for netbooks, and KDE default settings (all from software center). What else do I need to do to get rid of this blue screen?

General :: Dell Studio 1535 Screen Resolution - System Won't Get Past The Loading Screen Anymore

Aug 4, 2010

Unfortunately my experience in the Unix* based world up to this point has only been using web servers and administrating them, no GUI experience of any kind so I am completely unfamiliar with the setup and entire usage of Xorg or any other Window manager at this point. The issue I am having is with the screen resolutions I am being allowed to chose for my Dell Studio 1535 running Fedora Core 13 and the KDE 4 desktop GUI, thus my issue since I am not really familiar with how to run a Unix* based GUI in the first place.

The basic information, if there is more needed just advise what and what command gathers that info (or what conf/log I should look into in order to find it). Laptop is a Dell Studio 1535 Video is the Mobile Intel GMA X3100 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics. LCD interface is the LVDS.

So far it seems to give me modes for 1024x768 and on down, nothing above this. I believe I am supposed to use the radeon driver being that is the type of card it is but every time I change the xorg.conf file to use this instead of vesa the system wont get past the loading screen anymore upon reboot and nor can I seem to find a way to bring up a command line so I can hit up the Xorg.0.log to see what is wrong or change the xorg.conf file back to the original driver it had listed.

I am going to assume this is a missing driver or something else it hangs on but without being able to get access back to the system and having to rebuild it again (re-install via live CD) I am basically out of luck at this time. Sorry for the rather poor post but I do hope to receive some basic directions on where to go from here with this issue

Red Hat / Fedora :: Change The OS Boot Screen From The Blue Loading Bar At The Bottom?

Jun 1, 2011

there is a way to change the OS boot screen from the blue loading bar at the bottom to something more fancy. For example if you take a look at Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 they have a loading screen that makes an "O" on start up. Note: I am not talking about GRUB, I already know how to change the grub boot screen. If so can someone provide the steps needed to modify the OS loading screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu Can't Get Past The Menu?

Feb 10, 2010

I am a n00b to Ubuntu, been using it under dual boot with Windoze for about a year, and have found this forum to be a great help - so I am hoping someone can help me out with this "mystery".I wanted to try out the Kubuntu live CD in order to see if I'd like KDE interface better (I used some SuSE 11.2 lately and liked it).I did whatever I do with Ubuntu (under my Win7 environment) - downloaded the iso (x64)- burned it to a CD usinf imgBurner- checked the CD - seemed active enough, Windows installer popped up- rebooted the computerI got the usual language menu, chose English, got the usual "Try kubuntu without...", "install kubuntu"... menu and hit enter to Try and... nothing!? Every option I clicked responded with "nothing" except F keys, and "Boot from first hard disk".I tried a bunch of things - burning with CDBurnerXP, using it on another computer, downloading an iso from a different mirror

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot To Past 'GRUB Loading'?

Jan 30, 2010

I've just bought a new laptop (with no installed OS) and have (excitedly) burned a live cd for Karmic Koala 64bit: several people on the laptop manufacturer forums have got working with this particular laptop.

The live session works fine but when I install and then reboot I get 'GRUB Loading' with a flashing underscore and nothing else happens. I've found this thread and this bug report and have tried reinstalling GRUB to no avail.

I also have a live cd for 9.04 which I've tried to install and get a the same problem only now the message is 'GRUB Loading stage1.5' So I don't think it's a problem with the version of GRUB as described in the bug report thread.

I read something else that said it could be a problem with the mbr being in some way geared towards Windows but I'm not sure. I tried following those instructions but nothing happened and then I just got the same error again.

Any help would be greatly received since obviously I'm pretty desperate to get my spangly (and expensive) new machine to work. Edit: I also have a thread at the manufacturers' forums. But we're at a loss there too.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 LTS On Pavilion Dv1000 - Can't Get Past The Loading Logo

Jun 29, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my dv1000 but I can't seem to get past the Ubuntu loading logo. I'm using the same CD that I used when I installed onto my Dell Inspiron 600m and that installation went flawlessly. Right after the Ubuntu loading logo, my screen just goes black and sits there seemingly doing nothing. Does anyone know of compatibility issues with my laptop or is there a workaround to this black screen issue?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 "Five Red Dots" Gone During Loading?

Jan 31, 2011

After an automatic upgrade on Saturday and Sunday. Now during booting, the screen is black until eventually the desktop appears. Well, almost black-- early on there is a quick flash in the top left corner of the screen, I think it says "acpid client 0.0 disconnected".The desktop comes up and seems to work just fine.

What is it that puts the "Ubuntu" and Five Red Dots on the screen, is it grub2, or is it gdm, or X, or is it some other "in between" process? (Sometimes in the past I have gotten the text-only "Ubuntu 10.10" instead of the graphic 5 dots. At that time I was thinking it was something about grub2 not dealing with my monitor resolution properly. But I'm not so sure)

Ubuntu Installation :: Freeze Screen After Reboot And Get Past The Splash Screen?

May 12, 2011

When I install Ubuntu 11.04 with Wubi, I get this freeze screen after I reboot and get past the Ubuntu splash screen: url

As you can see, it's a scrambled picture of my Windows desktop. This happens with every other version of Ubuntu also.

I'm running a 64-bit PC and I don't wanna waste another CD or use a USB to install, because I actually progress further in my efforts whenever I use Wubi.

Ubuntu Installation :: Update From ISO Hangs With Scrolling Dots On Screen

Apr 30, 2010

I burned and checked the image, but cannot install or upgrade ( I DL both the full and alternate image) Hangs on the Ubuntu screen with the scrolling dots. After this, I tried mounting and running the install from the iso, but since all the files are either .inf or unknown, I don't know how. Next, I tried a trick from the ubuntu site using alt+F2 to run from the iso, and it seemed to work, but now it still tries to DL the updates from the internet instead of just getting them from the ISO. This also happens now if I try to upgrade from the update manager, it keeps asking for the install disk. Is there any way to just use the ISO as though it were a disk? I have been running 9.10 for months with no problems.

Ubuntu Installation :: Get To A Black Screen With Five Dots Below The Wording / Freeze?

Dec 23, 2010

I recently received a HP Pavilion dv9000 that the previous owner swore had some issues with it. I'm not so sure it had issues, but that's another story. Anyways, I downloaded Unbuntu 10.10 and burned it to a disk. The first time I booted up the machine I told it I wanted to try Ubuntu. I then left the machine and came back in 20min or so and it looked like it had successfully booted. However I quickly realized the screen was frozen. So I turned off the machine and decided I'd try again a few days later. Today I booted up the machine and I get to a black screen with Ubuntu on it with five dots below the wording. It freezes on this screen. I've rebooted several times but I keep getting to the same screen before it freezes.

I then tried a ubuntu-studio dvd I had handy just to see if this would work - and it started installing as expecting, I cancelled it after a while. how to get lubuntu running?

Ubuntu :: Dots Indicating Loading But 10.10 Not Starting

Mar 16, 2011

I made the fatal mistake of hibernating on my Lenovo T61. Ubuntu wouldn't wake up after that, I tried pressing all kinds of key combinations and nothing. So I did a hard shut down and now Ubuntu won't start. On the grub menu I chose Ubuntu with Linux 2.6.35-7 normal mode and it just shows the screen that says "Ubuntu 10.10" and the four dots underneath indicating loading.

So I tried recovery mode and it stops at:
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
/dev/sda5: clean, 688078/4988928 files, 15488354/19939072 blocks

I also tried unplugging the laptop and removing the battery and putting it back in and plugging and restarting. Nothing changed. Then I tried restarting without the battery in and now the normal mode just shows a black screen and a flashing cursor. I also have the USB stick I created to install Ubuntu, which worked back then, but now, it won't start from the stick, I checked the Bios options and the USB is the first boot device, I really don't know how else I can make it start from the USB.

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install 10.04 Desktop But The Screen Goes Black After - Dots - Logo ?

Sep 14, 2010

Trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 desktop (amd64) on this brand new system:

I connected the Dell ST2410 24" Full HD Widescreen LCD to the HDMI port on the ATI card and Windows 7 boots up just fine.

So then I put in the "ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso" CD in drive and reboot the system. I see the Ubuntu logo with the dots for a while and then the LCD goes black. The LCD reports that there is no signal from the system. The power light in front of the LCD goes from white to amber. The keyboard stops responding.

I power off everything, remove the Ubuntu CD and reboot the system and it works fine again with Windows 7.

The CD has no problems. At boot time, I checked it for defects and it reports no errors. At boot time, I used this same CD to check the system for memory errors. No memory errors. I used the same CD to install Ubuntu on other systems and had no problems.

The 16X DVDRW Drive has no problems. In Windows 7 it can play CDs and DVDs.

Ubuntu Installation :: Fail Installation, Now Windows Blue Screen Of Death?

Mar 9, 2011

I just finishing burning ubuntu on my laptop and was getting ready to partition my disk to allow space for ubuntu. I restarted my computer and when it was restarting ubuntu logo came up (as it booted from the disc). I was not wanting to install it at this moment so i was waiting for it to load then cancel it(just like a windows installation).It then froze and became pixelated with green and white colours.I thought it was nothing maybe just an error in teh disc. I waited 5-10 minutes then held the power button to shut it off. I then went to settings in the bios and changed it to boot from hdd first. After restart, windows began to load for like 3 seconds then blue screen. I dont know what went wrong or why this is happening.During installation of Ubuntu on my second try I keep getting:sudo: can't read /etc /sudoers: Input/Output errorsudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quittingWhat are the odds of me still having my windows 7 data?and could Hiren's boot cd help?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Won't Continue Past Second Screen?

Jan 31, 2011

I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu Netbook edition (v10.10) on my (brand new, No other OS installed) Asus Eee PC 1215T. I've successfully booted from the flash drive and can "Try Ubuntu," and everything works when doing so, however when I try to install it, the installer freezes on the second screen, right after language selection. To be a little more specific, that's the screen with the checkmarks next to "has at least 2.5 GB available drive space," "is plugged in to a power source," and "is connected to the Internet."

After I hit the "Forward" button on this screen, I just get an infinite wait cursor. I can still freely check and uncheck the boxes, and click the "Quit" button, so it's not entirely frozen, but it just won't progress any further.

I had this *exact* same problem just over a week ago when I tried to install Ubuntu on my desktop, also using the flash drive method. I ended up using the Windows installer to get it installed on my desktop, but as the netbook doesn't have any OS installed, that's not an option this time.

when I install Ubuntu from disc, it goes all the way through the install process and everything works fine until the part where you make your account, password, etc. When I enter all the information, sometimes it will say 'copying files..' for a while and I'll wait. Before long, though, it will say 'Ready when you are..' but the button that says forward is still greyed out and I cant click it. Ive tried going back and then forward again and it still doesnt work. Ive tried the install twice on two different discs and it wont work. Whats going on?
