Ubuntu :: Splash Startup Screen Flickers And Crashes?

Dec 27, 2010

I'm running a dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu 10.04. I have them both partitioned on a 1TB drive and I also have 2 250gb internal hd's hooked up. So starting maybe yesterday, I was noticing that Win7 started crashing for absolutely no reason whatsoever where it freezes and the mouse and keyboard are unresponsive. Today I did a system restore because I was tinkering in the registry so I thought that could have been the issue. Crashed once since. But runs longer. I also checked the event log and doesn't divulge anything explaining the system crash.

And just now, I tried booting up Ubuntu and after grub, the purple splash screen flickers back and forth to the text based terminal startup. All I could make out once was "could not read partition table." that was really the only significant thing I could make out. It flickers too quickly for me to really catch what its saying.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Startup - Goes Blank For A Minute Then Briefly Shows The Splash For 5-10 Seconds

Mar 26, 2011

I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu, and on the start-up after I pass the GRUB it goes blank for a minute then briefly shows the splash for 5-10 secs and then jumps to the login screen. Also the screen is offset by about 10-15 pixels but from the login screen onwards it is centred. (It's also like this for if I'm in recovery mode)
How do I fix this and Im wondering if it is a hardware problem?

Ubuntu :: Reset All Personalization Such As Splash Screen And Colors In Grub Splash To Default?

Apr 25, 2010

If I re-install Grub 2 from the live CD should that reset all the personalisations such as as splash screen and colours in the Grub splash to default? In my case they are not resetting. I would expect them to revert to the default black/white you get when initially installing the OS. the Grub timeout to be a lot less than its supposed to be? e.g. the default timeout setting of 5 seconds is more like 2 or 3 in reality, and when I set my prefered value to 2 seconds it results in being about 1/4 sec or so.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen Messed Up - Get Random Command Lines Mixed In With The Usual Splash

Jan 26, 2011

Since updating my graphics driver on ubuntu 10.10, My splash screen has been inconsistant and messed up. Sometimes ill get random command lines mixed in with the usual splash, sometimes the splash wont show and it will just be black till the desktop appears, sometimes it flashes on and off. I originally tried fixing the resolution and just made the problem worse. Then I tried installing a new splash via gnome-look.org, but it just made my shut-down splash blank and didnt effect my splash at startup. I just want the original splash that ubuntu is supposed to have.

Ubuntu :: Unable To And The Screen Flickers A Bit And Shows The Login Screen

May 31, 2011

I'm having a bit of an issue. I was transferring some files from an external hard drive onto my desktop computer running ubuntu 10.04...It filled up the hard drive to the max, rebooted and I couldn't login. Did some googling and thought it might be because it was too full so I plugged the ubuntu HDD into my laptop, removed some files and tried again. Still no luck.

What it does is tries to automatically login (that's how I have it set) at the main login prompt, it for some reason is not able to and the screen flickers a bit and shows the login screen. I enter my username and password and it flickers really quick and goes back to the login screen. Does this for my other user account as well. I can login via the command prompt (ctl-alt-f7) and do stuff there, but I cannot login to the GUI.

Ubuntu :: Screen Flickers And Goes On And Off

Mar 13, 2010

I have been (in retrospect) screwing around with drivers and various packages in Synaptics on a Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO Mobile, which has a SiS graphic card. Now I get a normal boot up until about 5 seconds after the Ubuntu-mark shows up in the middle of the screen. After that the screen flickers and goes on and off, without any results. This just continues forever, without any solution. I have tried the recovery mode, and tried to remember which packages I installed, and then tried to remove them, without success. Any tips on what to do, except reinstall?

Fedora :: Screen Flickers While Using F12?

Mar 21, 2010

im still pretty new to linux and have been using it since december. lately the screen keeps blinking. almost like the screen is going out. this only happens while it uses the fedora from my hard drive. the screen acts just fine while in the BIOS and when i boot from the live CD its all smooth. but when i boot from my hard drive, as soon as fedora starts to boot up its starts blinking and flickering again. im running a virus scan right now with clamtk.

not sure if this is relevant or not but: 2 days ago my friend had a worm virus shutting down her laptop. so i backed up her important files and photos on a thumb drive, formatted and reinstalled her vista for her. during the installation of windows i popped the thumb drive into my laptop (fedora 12) and imediatly did a virus scan with clamtk. no viruses found.

Ubuntu :: Login To Xfce The Screen Goes Black - Flickers A Few Times Then It Brings Back To The Login Screen

Apr 12, 2011

My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.

I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Some Applications Not Starting - Virtualbox Just Flickers The Edge Of The Screen

Oct 24, 2010

I have a strange problem with some applications in 10.10. This applies so far to virtualbox and skype. When I try to start them, nothing happens. Virtualbox just flickers the edge of the screen. Virtualbox has worked before, and i'm reluctant to delete it as I have another machine installed. Skype has never worked, and even when I have reinstalled, the same happens.

Ubuntu :: Sometimes When Resuming From Suspend - Screen Flickers With White Lines

May 29, 2011

I've been away from Kubuntu for a while but came back when Kubuntu 11.04 was released because it's awesome. I have a newer laptop since then, a Latitude E6410 with Intel graphics and 8GB of RAM. Everything works great, except......Sometimes when I resume from suspend to RAM, the screen flickers with thin white lines across the screen. I can switch to a tty and reboot it from there, but I'm unable to use KDE until I reboot. A lot of times resuming from suspend works without issue, but sometimes this problem occurs. I haven't figured out exactly what triggers it. In fact, the most recent time it happened, I didn't even have an application open.

I would like to figure this out because I use suspend a lot. I rarely turn off my laptop unless an update requires me to. I prefer to be able to close my lid and resume whatever I was working on later, but with this glitch I cannot trust it to do that.

Fedora Hardware :: LCD Screen Flickers / Suspend The System Once For The Flickering To Stop?

Jul 13, 2010

I have this situation: I installed F13 on my laptop having an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator. The screen of my laptop was flickering and i did a 'yum update'. The flickering didn't stop, but after suspending the system once, the flickering stops and everything is fine. Now after each reboot i have to suspend the system once for the flickering to stop. Please help.

After discussing in #fedora in freenode, some people asked for these (i'm posting in case you need them too):

$ lspci | grep -i vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)

Ubuntu :: Killed Plymouth Startup Splash?

May 22, 2011

Fooling around with trying to edit splash themes, and in trying to apply one, I broke the startup splash. The shutdown splash still works. I know that update-initramfs -u is supposed to fix this, but it hasn't. I run dpkg-reconfigure plymouth, and it gives me the list of themes; I can pick one, and it seems to do its thing; I run update-initramfs -u, and that looks like it worked too; but then I reboot, and the shutdown splash is unchanged, and the startup splash is just a black screen until GDM loads. It's as if I hadn't changed anything.

Fedora :: Gnome 3 & Skype - Screen Flickers - Looks Crappy - Takes Ages To Refresh

Jun 8, 2011

I have laptop with Mobility Radeon HD3200 graphics. Gnome 3 works more or less fine until I start Skype. When Skype is running switching between the windows is a pain in the a$$. The screen flickers, looks crappy, takes ages to refresh, etc. Anyone experience similar things? I also noticed that when I start yumex I also get the screen doing the same things as with Skype, but to a much lesser extent and only for a few seconds. Could it be related to the network connection? Running F15 64

Ubuntu :: Startup Splash Gone Bung - Lower Resolution

Sep 17, 2010

This is some thing that I've noticed with any install of Ubuntu whether its regular Ubuntu or Kubuntu etc. The splash that comes up with the distro name Ubuntu/Kubuntu on start up look perfectly fine and as it should until I've installed my Nvidia drivers. then it goes all bung.

Lower Resolution. Slightly different colouring and Not taking up the whole screen. Sometimes it even sits slightly to the right.

Is there a way that I can fix this? I know its nothing all that major but it would be nice if it looked as its meant to.

Ubuntu :: Boot Splash - No GDM Startup On Vty7 / Resolve It?

Dec 14, 2010

I've seen similar posts but nothing that's been able to solve my issue.

Linux qbit 2.6.35-23-generic #41-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 24 11:55:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux


Upon boot I can see the Ubuntu splash with the 6 white progress dots. No GDM or X11 session is started automatically with the progress screen simply remaining on display.

Temporary Solution
Stop GDM on vty7 and start it on vty1 or anywhere else for that matter - just not vty7 as this won't work. code...

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 :: Changing The Kubuntu Boot Splash Theme At Startup?

Jul 22, 2010

I recently installed kubuntu-kde and it changed the boot splash theme from an orange logo on a purple background to tourqoise on blue. How do I change it back?

In KDE, I can navigate to Settings > System Settings > Appearance > Splash Screen but that's not what i'm looking for. I'm not trying to change KDE's Splash Screen that shows when you load the KDE window manager after logging in as a user. Further, I'm not trying to change grub's boot splash image, which renders this guide useless.

I want to change the boot splash theme which lasts 25 seconds that is shown between the time your select the kernel in grub2 and the time gdm loads. Right now it says "Kubuntu" in an ugly way and I want to change it back to what it was originally before I installed KDE. I want it to say "Ubuntu" as it should by default.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting - Screen Froze After The Splash Screen

Jul 21, 2010

I received the Ubuntu CD by mail the other day and tried to install a dual boot with it. I first tried it out by running from the CD and the first problem I had was the screen froze after the splash screen. So I lurked around for a bit and found out that I can press any key on the screen with the keyboard and person to get to a different screen. At this screen I entered "F6" and then entered "nomodeset", this allowed me to pass the splash screen.

Next, I got into Unbuntu but I found out that the keyboard and mouse weren't working, so I lurked again and found out that I have to enter "noacpi" (sorry if I got that wrong, I forgot the name ). I ran by CD once more and everything worked, so I decided to finally install it next to my Vista. However, after installing it goes straight to the splash screen, and the freezing happens again. The screen where the keyboard and the person are not showing up so I have no idea how add the "nomodeset" and "noacpi". So my question is, how do I get to the screen where I can add both those things? Also, is there a way to add it permanently so I don't have to keep pressing F6?
