Ubuntu :: Live CD - Doesn't Boot - "Loading" The Screen Goes Blank And The System Shutdown

Jan 1, 2011

I've made a Live CD of version 10.04 on a machine running 10.04 (amd64). The disk boots fine on a 2nd machine but does not boot on the machine that created it. The CD/DVD is new and works for other things so I don't think it is this. The Live CD gets to the ISOLINUX screen but instead of "Loading" the screen goes blank and the system shuts down. I've tried everything I can think of (the disk works fine on another machine).

General :: Boot / Loading - Lenovo S20 Workstation Allergic - Get A Blank Screen

Apr 25, 2011

I got a new Lenovo S20 and I am having trouble loading Linux. I've loaded these variants with no success:

Ubuntu desktop
Ubuntu server
Linux Mint
CentOS
vmWare esxi

The live CD's run, and very nicely at that. But once I install to the workstation they won't boot. I just get a blank screen. I've tried different bootloaders.. I've toyed with different BIOS settings.. I've even installed to different drives (a hard disk and an SSD). Maybe a hint: BSD installs and runs with no problem at all. I have PC-BSD running at the moment. It's nice, maybe I'll keep it. But I'd rather have Linux.

My amateur computer science mind sees this as not a boot loader issue (recovery mode shows Linux seems to be loading to a point.. but I can't see the script line just before the lockup) not graphics related; UB Server and vmWare are text-only and they won't load either probably not a bios issue (liveCDs run and other people run Linux on S20s) not hardware (Windows and BSD run on this one)

OpenSUSE Install :: GUI Will Not Load - Blank Screen On Live Boot

Jul 1, 2010

I have been trying to install openSUSE on a dell Latitude XT all day, and every time I tried to live boot, I got a blank screen. I finally decided to do a text install and I got it installed, but now I get the same result from booting off of the splash screen.

I can boot into text mode fine (still) but for whatever reason, it bombs as soon as I tell it to load the GUI. I have a 1.2 GHz Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, and an ATI mobility chip (2000 series, maybe?) I had the same problem with Ubuntu, and since I like openSUSE just as well, I figured I'd try it because I at least could do a text install from my liveCD.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Image Not Loading - Flash Screen On Blank Screen

Dec 26, 2010

Is there a known problem with the Lubuntu 10.10 image here? I have downloaded it to two different computers, then burned the images to two different blank CD's (different brands) and neither loads. Both only get as far as the Lubuntu menu, once ENTER is pressed at that point to load the LiveCD, a blank screen eventually appears with a flashing cursor at the upper left of the screen, that's it. They were both burned using the slowest burn speeds available.

Ubuntu :: Screen Goes Blank Or Boots To Tty1 After Loading Screen?

Apr 15, 2011

like any other Linux newb, I came to Ubuntu because my Windows crashed one time too many. And I chose Ubuntu because "it just works". But these past few days that hasn't been true. I'm posting this from a netbook with Ubuntu, and am having no problems whatsoever, but normally I use an Acer Aspire 5920G laptop. I'll include the specs as written on the sticker:

* Intel Core 2 Duo processor T5250 (1.5GHz etc)
* Up to 1024 MB Nvidia Geforce 8600M GS Turbocache
* 2 GB DDR2

Let me know if you need more details, and I'll add them later. Now, what happened was I clicked "hibernate" while leaving Firefox open. (I've done this hundreds of times, no problem) And when I went to turn it back on the next day there were weird graphical glitches in the loading screen, and it booted to the "tty1" prompt screen. I did a lot of googling and found quite a few posts about it, but the solutions either didn't work, or I didn't understand them. After trying several different suggestions from this forum and others, I managed to delete the graphics drivers. That enabled me to boot in low graphics mode, and naturally, I tried a whole bunch of things to make it work properly again. That only made it worse. Now it went straight from the loading screen to just blanking out and turning the display off. So, I tried new things. Over and over. The weird thing is even when I disconnected my harddrive and ran from a Live USB, the problem persisted. Could there be an issue with the graphics card itself? Anyway, after reconnecting the harddrive I tried to boot again. And it suddenly worked. Even HDMI to my bigger screen worked.

Ubuntu :: Broken Grub On Dual-boot System - Get A Flashing Cursor On A Blank Screen When Try To Load

Nov 2, 2010

I installed Win7 after Ubuntu (10.10). I attempted to reload grub so that I would be able to run them dual boot and now I can't load anything.

I followed the guide here: [url] and went threw it a couple of times now to make sure it wasn't user error.

I am using a live cd from 10.04 because it's the only one I have. Any chance that's why it isn't working properly? I wouldn't think so, but I assume that it's possible.

If that is the case; Any way to solve it without using the live cd? I cannot burn a new disk because I have to boot from disk to use my computer right now.

I just get a flashing cursor on a blank screen when I try to load.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - AppArmor Loading Then Screen Just Blank

Jan 22, 2010

I am new to ubuntu and I would really like to try it out, however I cant do the demo it freezes, I cant boot it either. I got rid of the quiet splash and watched it load. The last thing I saw before it went to just a blank screen was the ubuntu logo and it said loading apparmor then ok, went back to the previous command line screen and said done. Then it was just blank. No mouse, no blinking cursor, nothing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Goes Blank After Loading OS

Jun 30, 2010

I'm attempting to install Ubuntu Netbook remix (however I have tried others) on a 32 bit laptop but after it goes through that ubuntu loading thing, it goes blank after that and I've determined that it's not the cd and it's something to do with the hardware after looking at other posts with similar issues. I do not have an operating system on this laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Live CD Blank Screen

Feb 27, 2010

I recently got a new laptop and am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on it. I have installed it on my two other computers without any problems, but there seems to be a hitch with my new one. So I boot up using the live CD and then am presented with the option to test Ubuntu or install it. If I choose either of these the screen just goes blank. If I go with the first option of testing Ubuntu before installing, I can hear the intro drumbeats but the screen is still blank.

I have searched in some forums and tried some people's advice, like pressing Ctrl+Alt+- or trl+Alt+Backspace to change the resolution and restart X windows, respectivley. But it doesn't seem to work.
I'll list my laptops specs just in case my problem has anything to do with them:

MSi
Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit
Intel Core i3 M 330 2.13GHz
4GB DDR3 RAM
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Goes Blank After Boot Then Re-appears When Shutdown?

May 10, 2010

Desktop goes blank after boot, then re-appears when shutdown. How do I fix? I turn on computer, it starts fine with the usual green boot screen, the little bar progresses then the screen goes blank. Then when I go to turn off (push power button), the desktop re-appears. What can i do to fix? I need my desktop back (I haven't made any changes to my system since last boot, and I have turned off, pulled cables out, put them in etc...it must be a software issue) I'm using OpenSuse 11.1 Gnome 32 bit

Ubuntu Installation :: Run Live CD/DVD Toshiba C660 - Blank Screen?

Mar 19, 2011

I've been trying for some time to install Ubuntu 10.10 or variant on my Toshiba C660 with ATI graphics card.I seem to keep hitting a brick wall when attempting to run a live disc and end up at a blank screen. I get this result despite tryingots of different installation discs. Ubuntu 10.04 seems to run with no problems.I believe the problem is to do with the graphics card from googling and have tried various changes to the live cd/dvd boot options (set nomodeset & radeon.modeset=0) but with no success

Ubuntu :: 64 Bit Live USB, Blank Screen On Thinkpad X121e (Intel)

Aug 16, 2011

I have just received my new laptop - a Thinkpad x121e, with Intel (Core i3).

I am trying to put ubuntu on it, but i am having some problems with the 64 bit live USB.

When i run the USB i get i get a GRUB-looking screen, with options to:

Quote:

1. Try Ubuntu without installing
2. Install Ubuntu
3. Check the disk for errors

Wanting to repartition my hard drive (using GParted) so that i can dual boot, i Quote:

Try Ubuntu without Installing

, at which point the screen goes blank and nothing happens. I am then forced into a hard reboot. I get the exact same result when i pick

Quote:

Check the disk for errors

from the GRUB-like screen

To check the live USB, i tried it on my old laptop (32bit, Celeron M). When i did so i got a purple screen with an image of what looks like a keyboard and a man at the bottom, and then a message telling me to try a kernel which matches with my machine's architecture.

I then tried a live USB with 32 bit ubuntu and the live USB works fine - i am sending this email from this live instance running on my new Thinkpad. The same can be said for a 32 bit Mint live usb which also worked on the Thinkpad.

So i am not sure what is going on. If anyone could tell me why the 64bit live USB is not working, it would be great as i'd like to get it up and running. The only thing i could think of was that i have downloaded the amd64.iso, and this is an intel machine. Having said that i see that all the sites on the web suggest that this shouldn't make a difference (if it does, where might i get an 64 bit version for intel). In addition i am not sure why, if this was the problem, my old celeron laptop brings up the error message while the new machine just hangs.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Live Cd Immediately Giving A Blank Screen?

Mar 3, 2011

I've used Mint a couple times to try to recover my old computers, but I only worked with it as long as I needed to. Now, I'm going to give Ubuntu a try so I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and burned it to a DVD. When I try to boot it up with the DVD in, it does the startup screen that I'm used to before it loads the actual OS, and then it just gives me a blank screen. The only way to exit is to shut down the computer

Ubuntu :: System Doesn't Stay Shutdown?

Nov 27, 2010

When I shut down the computer, it does not remain shut down. This is different from "restarting" the computer because when I "shutdown" the computer powers down, the fan and disks stop spinning for a second, and then everything starts again. When I "restart" the fan and disks remain spinning throughout the restart process.Further, the computer is dual booting with Windows XP Pro. If I shut down from Windows, the system remains shut down.

System Information:
Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
kernel: 2.6.32-26-generic

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

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Loading NVIDIA Driver With Live CD Boot?

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a new NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT video card for this PC recently and now whenever I boot Ubuntu 9.10 Live I can't change the screen resolution from 640 X 480. I get this message to the effect that the driver is restricted and not free software. When I try to download it and use it it says I can only activate it after a reboot, but I guess it means after rebooting an installation of Ubuntu, not the live cd since it never takes.

Ubuntu recommends NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver 185, so I went to NVIDIA's web site and downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86-185.18.36-pkg1.run (and NVIDIA-Linux-x86-190.53-pkg1.run since I think it's the newest, at least when I enter GeForce 6 Series and Linux 32-bit in the driver download search it's what comes up). I noticed that at the beginning menu of the Ubuntu 9.10 Live cd, when you press F4, the option to load from a driver disk is there. I was hoping this means I could just put one or both of the above files on a cd, insert it into the other disk drive and select that option.

OpenSUSE Install :: Error Loading Operating System (Live CD Was Totally Fine)?

May 17, 2011

This is a IBM T23 (10 years old)pentium3 1.1ghz640mb ram28gb hdd (contianing several bad sectors)intel graphicseverything works out of box (graphics, wireless, etc) on a live cdhowever after installation, upon boot, it displays "Error loading operating system" right after BIOS and before even goes into GRUB and is stuck there.Enter live cd, and choosing boot from harddrive does not solve the problem.Already did the CD check, which shows no problemdid a bit googlingturned out this could be an issue with a dying harddriveand sadly, it is the case, the harddrive on this 10 year old laptop is indeed dying D:However, installing windows xp posed no problem... (altho tons of driver issue, but anyways...)I have a few solutions in mind1). just use a usb stick as the replacement for harddrive2). get a new harddrive (not even sure what to get for this laptop D: )3). find a magical way to fix it :SWould definitely be glad to know a way to load this system on this existing harddrive for nowI was told earlier that there are ways to tell the system to avoid mapping the bad sectors.
