General :: Screen Not Showing On Laptop But Showing On Projector When Connected

Apr 18, 2011

When I try to connect a projector to my laptop (already running) and hit the fn+f7 (the designated button for switching screen), nothing happens. I see "no source found" on projector screen and my laptop screen works perfectly. Now if I restart the laptop with the projector connected, I see all the intial booting messages on the projector screen (not on my laptop), then the gnome login screen appears on both the projector screen and laptop (when the login screen appears on laptop it looks like it has lower resolution than my usual laptop resolution). But immediately after I log in, my laptop screen goes blank, and projector screen becomes the only active screen.

If I restart without the projector, again all normal operation on laptop screen is restored.

I feel like I am missing some very silly options. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the output of xrandr when the laptop is connected:

Ubuntu :: Laptop Screen Not Shutting Off When Laptop Lid Closed?

May 15, 2010

When I change the "When laptop lid is closed" option in Gnome Power Manager to either "Blank Screen" or "Do Nothing" (by manually using gconf-editor), the screen itself doesn't turn off when the lid is closed. Obviously not a huge deal, as I could just change the "idle before sleep" on certain occasions, but I liked that setting it to "Do Nothing" previously would actually turn off the screen when the lid was closed.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Keeps Crashing And Showing Error Message

This happens like 2/3 times a day, basically I will just be doing something normal on the laptop, then suddenly the screen goes black with white writting - none of which makes sense to me

This is one of the screens that appears:

It stays like that for ages, then I have to restart.

Ubuntu :: Super Dark Laptop Screen / Couldn't Read Anything On Screen

Jul 18, 2010

I've had Windows XP installed on a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with 1 gig of ram and 70 gig hard disk. Today I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition to ext3 partitions I made on the laptop's hard disk. The Ubuntu installation went fine, and Ubuntu was up and runnning. Then for fun, I checked the available WiFi networks in this apartment building. Six were secure but one WiFi was open, so I clicked it out of curiosity. Within seconds, my laptop's 15-inch screen went super-dark, nearly jet black.I couldn't read anything on the screen. Pictures and words were still on the screen, but just way too dark to read or to see with any clarity at all. I don't have a WiFi card in the laptop.Instead I use Verizon's usb727 air card on Verizon EVDO Mobile Broadband (3G)

I don't know if the free Wifi network hosed me in some way with a nasty trick (I don't have a WiFi card in the laptop--just the usb727 dongle which is an EVDO aircard), or if it was just coincidental that the screen went super dark seconds after clicking the open Wifi network in Ubuntu's network manager applet.When I reboot, I don't see anything anymore, not the POST, not Windows XP booting up, or Ubuntu booting up. The only way I see anything now is to connect the laptop to an external monitor using the laptop's blue video connector. And even then, I still can't see the boot-up POST process, or the BIOS screen.I can only see Ubuntu or Windows XP after they've finished loading, and only on an external monitor. Did the new installation of Ubuntu hose my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop's screen, or was it the Wifi network, or did the screen just coincidentally go bad minutes after I installed Ubuntu and seconds after I clicked the open Wifi connection?

Ubuntu :: Boot Screen Not Showing Up ?

Apr 30, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on one of my computers which has an NVIDIA graphics card. The Ubuntu Boot Screen doesn't show up. I know this was a problem in 10.10 but I had found a script to fix it which had worked in that version but when I ran it in 11.04, it didn't do anything.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Not Showing?

Jul 16, 2011

I have been using Natty for quite some time now as a new user to ubuntu after switching from vista. When i used the live cd the splash screen stayed there, for it's entirety. However when I boot to Natty on this laptop I notice the splash screen doesn't show until fully booted then i can log in and use Ubuntu. What happens is it shows a little _ sign that blinks then the screen flashes and shows

Ubuntu fully booted. I just wondered if this was something wrong with my graphics card or just some general bug with natty atm.

Ubuntu :: Cant Logout Without Black Screen Showing Up?

Sep 8, 2010

Every time me or another user uses the "log out" option were faced with a black screen that does not go away, unless the computer is restarted. i've left it for an hour thinking it might have just slowed down or something but that was a no go, and it happens each time you try to use it. the strange thing is if the black screen is up programs still run. i have a media server running most of the time and i have no problem accessing it while the black screen is showing.

Another problem im having is that sometimes when a user logs in they have no sound. the sound icon is showing that no sound is installed, but when another user logs in there is no problem and sound works fine.

Lastly i dont know if this is a feature or a problem. the first user to log in will always have control over the network connection. for example if my mother logs in first the icon to switch connections will show up on the top of her screen and she has full access to what connections she wants to use, also her account is just a basic user account. now when i log in i wont have the network icon on the top of my screen, and my account is the main admin account.

Ubuntu :: Screen Resolution Not Showing All Options?

Aug 13, 2011

I have yet to install Ubuntu on a machine that shows screen resolution options higher than 1024x768. Is there a (GUI) way to turn on the missing options? I'd rather not have to go into that while xorg.conf thing if I don't have to. In other operating systems, I load it and set the resolution to what I want, they just show up. Why is it so hard in Ubuntu (and most Linux's in general)?

Ubuntu :: Windows Not Showing Up In The Boot Screen?

Sep 1, 2011

I installed wubi to try ubuntu out. It didn't show up in the windows boot manager, so I manually went to startup options and changed the default os from windows to ubuntu, trough right clicking My Computer, and going into the "advanced" tab. Now I don't know how to revert back to windows because this does not have a "My Computer". My os is windows XP professional, by the way.

General :: Cracked Laptop Screen / Can't See Most Of The Screen?

Dec 3, 2010

I recently installed Debian Linux (Lenny, but I used a backpost kernel) A couple months ago, I dropped my laptop and it has GIANT cracks in it so that it is nearly impossible to see most of the screen. I've managed to work around it by hooking it up to my TV screen, but now that I've installed debian, and am trying to use bash as much as possible, I wonder if it would be possible to tell debian not to use any of the unusable screen. Is there a way to set this up? It's an Acer Aspire One 150 ZG5

Ubuntu :: No Boot Up - Screen Not Showing Solid Picture

Mar 17, 2010

I was trying to fix my audio driver so that my speakers would work after installing Linux Mint 8. I rebooted it to see if it worked but the computer won't boot up. It gets past the toshiba screen and the mint logo shows up like normal, but then I get what I think is an error message. I can't be sure though because the screen is not showing a solid picture. If I hit escape, I get another similar screen. If I hit escape again the screen goes blank and I can no longer get it to do anything. I'm new to Linux and not much of a computer wiz.

Ubuntu :: Plymouth Not Functioning / Showing Purple Screen?

Mar 29, 2011

Since upgrading from 9.10 to 10.4 and then on to 10.10, I have only ever seen an uninspiring purple screen (current.jpg, except mine says 'Ubuntu 10.10') as my boot splash image. I have downloaded different themes for Plymouth, selected them, and then updated 'initramfs' (screenshot), all to no avail. I also recently installed Nvidia drivers, but nothing changed. Is there something I'm missing?

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Unbootable After Gdm Update / Showing Blank Screen?

Jun 3, 2011

Yesterday I got an update in update-manager: gdm blabla 3.2... installed. restarted. And I see nothing after the boot screen (plymouth, default one) display stays blank, even caps-lock doesn't turn on its indicator on the keyboard. hdd activity indicator on the laptop doesn't blink, only power indicator is on...
the only way is to press and hold power button to turn it off. restart and I see the same picture........

I thought that's hdd, because yesterday ubuntu froze completely on a ..... video (adobe I hate you!)

so I turned laptop off and started again (before it froze I installed that gdm "security-"update) and saw the blank screen for the first time.

then I booted into "single" mode, manually starting X OR GDM gives me the same blank screen with frozen/unusable keyboard, caps-, numlock do not word, I can't switch virtual terminals...

so I've reinstalled the whole system an hour ago. Everything went well!!!!I booted into clean 11.04 (except my configs, cuz I haven't formated /home partition). Then I restored my ppa's (/etc/apt) that I backed up from the 'single' mode... updated apt database, restored all of my backuped apps (dpkg --get-selections >... dpgk --set-selections <...)an hour to update everything. installed ati driver, RESTART, and what I see? BLANK SCREEN RIGHT AFTER PLYMOUTH.

startx from single mode = blank screen
gdm start from single mode = blank screen

I can't use ubuntu, PLEASE HELP ME fixing that crap.

I downloaded yesterday gdm blabla3, blabla3.1 and blabla3.2

downgraded the crapped gdm-0ubuntu3.2 to 3 and to 3.1 NO DIFFERENCE. I JUST GET BLANK SCREEN.

before restoring the apps everything worked.


there are absolutely NO ERRORS in /var/log/*I viewed every file from that dir, that was created at boot attempt...no errors, nothing, just blank screen

Debian :: TTY Screen Keeps Showing Some Msg About The USB Mouse?

Jan 27, 2011

When working in the TTY console, it keeps printing some message about my USB mouse. Those message are added to whatever I am doing. If I am writing a command line, it messes the line, but the command still gets interpreted correctly. Same thing if I am editing a file in vi: the display shows the message, but the file is not corrupted. Can I fix it? Should I file a bug report? Against which package? What info should I provide?

Ubuntu Installation :: Black Screen After Login But Cursor Still Showing

Apr 18, 2011

when I boot and login to a fresh install of Ubuntu, everything goes fine, the login screen appears, I login. Then the cursor appears on a black screen. This is normal. Then when the desktop should appear, on the very left edge of the screen, about 5 pixels in size, you can see the panel and the rest of the desktop. But I stress, You still see the cursor. In this small area, you can right click as you, even click on the menu and it will come down, you can see it. I can click on Ubuntu SC and the cursor will turn to a loading symbol. But then nothing again. I can press Ctrl + Alt + F2 and terminal will come on fine. So far, this has happened on a live CD of Maverick, A live USB of Maverick, A Natty Narwhal Fresh Install, A Maverick Fresh install, A Karmic Old Install and That same Karmic After going through a Distro upgrade via Ctrl + Alt + F2 to 11.04. I've gotten all the updates for all of them (A slow, bandwidth wasting process), and this doen't happen on other computers, even ones with lower graphics cards then mine. Additionally, on the same computer on a seperate partion, I can load my main Maverick just fine, Indicateing that it can't be a hardware problem. After searching across the internet, I'm at loss to an answer.
