CentOS 5 :: GUI Won't Load / Screens Goes Black

Dec 21, 2009

I have acquired what appears to be an old Gateway 2000 686 (Intel Chipset 82845G) with a Radeon X1600 graphics card and plan to turn it into a web server, although a minor problem, but I can not get a GUI (GNOME desktop) to load, however a text based server loads fine.Whether I use default 'GNOME Desktop' option at install or load text based install and use yum to install the GUI later, I get a couple of screen flickers and the screen goes black on start up.

Ubuntu :: Random Black Screens And Returns To Login Screen?

Apr 12, 2011

I'm on Ubuntu 11.04 and I have this annoying issue. it does happen very often, but enough to be a problem (atleast once a day or more).While I'm browsing the web (not really doing much of anything else) the screen goes black with some text. I don't get enough time to read the text and I'm returned to the login screen. I'm completely logged off, my session isn't still there when I log back in

Ubuntu :: Video (gdm) With ATI Driver - Get Black Screens After Initing PulseAudio

Jun 25, 2011

after initing PulseAudio, again only black sreens. I booted from an USB stick, tried mounting both filesystems, worked fine. I renamed my xorg.conf and booted from the first array. Worked with minimal video (low resolution, one screen only). Tried ATI control panel, claimed no driver active. I downloaded and installed a newer version of the proprietary ATI driver. Rebooted, got 3 screens at the right resolution. Problem seemed to be solved, all I had to do was configure ATI control panel to use 3 screens as one desktop.

Started ATI control panel, after clicking on the right section (nothing saved yet), CPU usage spiked, mouse froze. Crap. Rebooted, gnome froze before even showing desktop or populating top and bottom panels. Just black screens with empty panels top and bottom. Booted the USB. Ran fsck on both filesystems. No errors. Fear of not being to able to perform any work today ensued. Logged into ubuntuforums and explained the situation.

Fedora X86/64bit :: FC14 Wont Get Past Initial Black Screens?

Jan 20, 2011

I have a PC installed with FC 14:AMD 9500 Quad Core4GB RAM2x ATI X1950I've been using FC14 for a few weeks after updating from FC13.The graphics driver was a default one, it worked but it would only recognise one of my screen cards and I wanted to install the ATI Catalyst software so I began the process of installing the proper drivers.I followed the howto at: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=155503 Once I'd finished the driver seemed to be sort of working but everything was going really slow. If I moved a window it'd take a while to redraw in the new position, menus took ages to pop up, and so on.

I tried running aticonfig and got an error message (unfortunately the only record of it is on the machine I can't access properly). I put the message into a search engine and found a bug stating the same message where people had the same problem with Nvidia and intel cards too.The problem was something to do with python and how it started up the drivers (sorry I can't remember the message). The bug had an rpm attached that was a patch to fix this problem (I'm blabbing on in case any of this jogs the memory of someone that had this problem or worked on it).I installed the patch and rebooted and now Fedora gets as far as the black screen where a progress bar fills in white at the bottom of the screen but it stops there. Once the bar is completely white it sits there and gets on further no matter how long I wait.Does anyone know how I can recover this system? Is there a way of getting the system to recreate xorg.conf before this stage and load using the default driver again? The point it's hanging at is the point where it would normally bring up the graphical progress bar then the login screen.

Ubuntu :: Boot - Multiple "black Screens Of Death"?

Oct 19, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 4730Z laptop running Edubuntu 10.10 (32 bit, clean install). My problem is with the boot process. After boot and everything seems working properly, I will get the ?black screen of death? followed by the log in screen. Unfortunately, the display is made up of nothing but horizontal and vertical lines, leaving noting recognizable. I have to do a hard restart. I have to go through this process 2-4 times before I am up and running. The ?black screen of death? occurs right after I load any program

Ubuntu Installation :: What Is Making Long Black Screen Or How To Reduce Time

Jun 11, 2010

I keep hearing about how Ubuntu is supposed to be so much faster than Windows 7, but have yet to see any major difference in their boot times. I am dual-booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.04 on an intel Centrino 2 processor with 4Gb of ram and both OS's take about the same time to boot. After I get to the bootmanager to select OS, if I click on Windows 7 it almost immediately goes to the GUI load screen with the windows logo. On the other hand, if I boot into Ubuntu I get a black screen for ~30 seconds before the Ubuntu logo even appears. Comparing GUI boot times, Ubuntu is clearly the winner, but they take the same time total.

Does anyone know what is making the long black screen or how to reduce the time? I would really like to show people how fast Ubuntu really boots.Immediatly before Ubuntu Gui starts, an message shows up for a second saying something like "Unknown adaptor version (2): You may experience some problems", it flies past so quickly that may not be verbatim.

I turned on my Acer laptop and during bootup it seemed normal. After it passed the blue Acer logo, all I could see is a black screen and a black cursor outlined in white in the shape of an X. Thinking it would be a one time thing, I turned it off again.it still was a black screen.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - OOo Dialog Screens Comes Up Maximized

May 8, 2010

When I use a little helper window (like the find and replace dialog) in OOo 3.2 on 10.04 UNR it always comes up maximized, which is kind of irritating, because I have to restore it before it's usable. It's weird that such a window should even have a maximize button, but there you go. No biggie, clearly, but if anyone knew of a workaround that would be great! I'm using the clearlooks theme, although I tried with the new black shiny one and it seems to exhibit the same problem.

Ubuntu :: Error: No Screens Found

May 9, 2010

I'm trying to install 10.04, but have hit a few bumps. The first time I tried to boot the live cd, the monitor frequency would go out of range. I fixed this by deleting the

ro quiet splash
from the end of the boot line, and replacing it with
ro vga=773 nomodeset

After booting with this modification to the kernel line, rather than booting into the live cd desktop, it takes me to a command setting. To try and get things moving I type

Ubuntu :: How To Get Multiple Screens Setup

Jun 3, 2010

I was wondering when and/or how to get multiple screens setup and working in unison. Currently I have 3d rendering working but all of my screens work as separate desktops. They all have their own start menu and panel bar. I cannot move a window from screen to screen. I have to open a new window in that screen and then it is stuck on that screen and can not be move any where else. When is this going to be fixed because until it is unfortunately Micro Slop will still have my business. I am a power user and enjoy my 4 screens when they work in unison, not as individuals.

Ubuntu :: Virtual Box VM And Dual Screens?

Jul 18, 2010

I use multiple screens on my computer in work which is running Ubuntu 10.04 it runs great apart from the VBox VM. I run a windows VM as some apps we use in the office are not compatible with ubuntu and I can't get them running right in wine. In single screen mode I use the VM in 'seamless' mode so the windows start menu just sits on top of the ubuntu panel and I can flip from ubuntu to windows as I please in the same interface (im sure anyone that uses VBox will understand what I mean).

The problem comes when I use a second screen. If I try to run in seamless mode on the main screen it works ok apart from the fact that the windows start menu sits behind the ubuntu panel instead of on top of it. When I move the VM to the second screen I cannot run it in seamless mode at all, if I try the resolution goes hay wire and I only get half the screen (if im lucky). So I just run it in full screen mode which stops me from dragging windows from within the windows VM back to the first screen.

What I want to be able to accomplish is to run the VM in seamless mode on either screen but be able to drag windows accross both screens. Is that at all possible?

Ubuntu :: How To Move Panels To Different Screens

Dec 20, 2010

I'm setting up a second monitor connected to my laptop via Twinview in the Nvidea settings manager for my system. It is working just fine, except for the fact that when I enable it, it puts the Desktop panels on the secondary screen, as opposed to the primary one. Is there any way to make new panels on the primary screen, or to move them over to the primary screen? I am running Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit on an HP Pavillion dv7 laptop.

Ubuntu :: Get Desktop To Stretch Across Two Screens?

Jan 28, 2011

I am trying to get my desktop to stretch across two screens. (for reference, I am using Kubuntu 10.10) When I start up the system, it duplicates whatever is on the primary monitor onto the the secondary. Initially, playing with the options in the GUI I thought I had it figured. Under System Settings < Display and Monitor < Size and Orientation there is an option that lets me set the position of my secondary monitor to the "right of" the primary. However, on restarting the computer, this resets to its initial setting of "clone of" the primary.

So I did a bit of reading and found something I could put in the command line:

Code: xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --right-of DVI-I-1

Which again fixes the problem, but only for that given session. On restart we are back to the same scenario. A bit more reading tells me that putting things in etc/rc.local executes them on start up so I shouldn't have to each time I turn on my computer. Except that putting it in there didn't do anything. While I am reasonably pleased with myself having learned as much as I did in this little exploration (previously, the only command line thing I knew how to use was apt-get), I am feeling pretty frustrated at this point.

Is there somewhere else I should be putting this other than (or in addition to) etc/rc.local? Do I need to put something other than xrandr thing in there to make it execute?

Ubuntu :: Gparted Error - No Screens Found

I haven't had this problem with older versions of gparted. I suppose I could use an older version, but I'd like to know what the problem is.

Ubuntu :: No Screens Found When Trying To Start X Server / Get That?

Oct 14, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.10 x64, fully updated kernel and stuff, in VMWare Workstation 7.

Before I tried installing the Nvidia driver, I set up all my stuff, settings, etc. Restarted several times, everything went okay.

I then decided to install the Nvidia drivers for my GTS 250. I first tried the manual install (sudo sh NVIDIA-INSTALL-NAME.run) and it failed saying something about the nvidia.ko or nvidia.so. I tried using this page http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9203671 to fix it, but it still failed, so then I used the automatic method (sudo apt-get install nvidia-current) and it installed fine, then I ran nvidia-xconfig and restarted.

The VM started up, but no GUI came up, instead, a black screen with a terminal (I think it's called a Virtual Terminal) came up and asked me to log in. I tried the command "startx" from there, and it told me no screens were found.

What can I try?

Ubuntu :: Nvidia 'No Screens Found' After Every Reboot?

Nov 7, 2010

Some background to summarise, I have installed 10.10 clean over the top of 10.04. I did not have X/display problems on 10.04. After installing the Nvidia display driver for my device (Asus 8800GT - display driver: NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260.19.12.run) in order to get dual-headed display working under TwinView (as I had previously have used on 10.04 problem-free) I cannot reboot/shutdown my machine without a Fatal Error No Screens Found message appearing at boot time.I can hibernate, but this is less than ideal, especially after installing updates which require a restart. Every time this does happen I can re-run the driver installation and all is well again.Below are two copies of my Xorg log. The first is the erroneous log, the second the successful log. Below that is my xorg config file generated via nvidia-xconfig.

Ubuntu :: How To Add And Select Boot-splash Screens

May 11, 2011

I have never had a boot-splash screen on my dual-boot configuration; and I recently added something in Synaptic, probably by mistake, that added a Debian splash screen to my boot menu. I think it's much more attractive than the bare menu; however it's not appropriate for an Ubuntu distro. Also, I'd like to know how to add and select boot-splash screens, that will show behind my boot menu, like the Debian screen does.

Ubuntu :: Getting Config Menus To Fit On Netbook Screens?

May 28, 2011

I don't think I'll find a good answer to this question, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I'm running 11.04 on a netbook with a 1024x600 screen. In almost every program I try to run, the config/preferences menu takes up so much space that the bottom of the window scrolls down into the workspace below it. The only way to fix it is to maximize the windows, but that's a bother to have to do every single time. And sometimes, maximizing it screws things up even worse, although that's rare.he only program to be really bad about it is Evolution, which puts the top bar on the workspace below it even though the majority of the screen is on the other workspace. And all of the buttons still aren't available after maximizing
