Ubuntu :: Ubuntu Won't Load - Stays On Black Screen

Mar 15, 2010

I guess I messed around with my computer a little too much when I was bored. I tried installing compiz and emerald and my computer locked up. Rebooted and then it stays on a black screen. Rebooted and tried safe mode now. Removed emerald by command prompt to see if that would work and rebooted.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Not Booting - Getting Black Screen With Copyright Notice Stays At Screen Forever

Nov 3, 2010

I downloaded Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop.iso and used the Fedora liveusb-creator to put this on a 2GB USB stick. Everything seemed to have gone well and it said complete; however, when I try to boot from the USB stick, I get a black screen with a linux copyright notice at the top and it just stays at that screen forever. I tried this on two computers with the same results.

I'd previously tried with Ubuntu and had a similar issue, it would go to a purple (if I remember correctly) Ubuntu screen and it sat that forever.

Ubuntu :: Doesn't Boot From CD. Just Stays On Black Screen

Nov 4, 2010

I have tried booting from 2 different Ubuntu CD's (10-04-01 and 10-10) and a Fedora CD.All 3 CD's do the same thing, in Ubuntu I just see the first screen (Keyboard/Battery on the bottom with the guy next to it) and then the screen goes black but the lights, that indicate there's a computer connected and transmitting info onto the screen, are still on.

I know the CD's aren't the problem because they work on 2 other computers I have.The CD drive isn't the problem because took it out of a working computer and that booted up fine with the CD's.I've restored BIOS to default settings.I've tried booting with 1 stick of ram at a time but still doesn't boot.I've left the computer on for 3 hours but nothing appeared on the screen and the lights never turned off. It was just a black screen, nothing on it, not even a blinking cursor.I know it's capable of booting up CD's because the Windows XP setup disc boots.

Dec 31, 2010

I've installed Ubuntu on another PC and most things are great except fore the black screen that you get when you start the PC (just before the Ubuntu Logo). It stays black for 20 seconds. Is there something I can do to make it shorter like on my other PC.

Ubuntu Installation :: After I Boot Into Setup / It Stays At A Black Screen

Jun 16, 2010

Had Ubuntu installed, it worked fine but I had to format for a new partition (out of space) I program in Windows, I would consider myself a Windows geek, and would like to try out Linux. After I boot into setup, it stays at a black screen. It did that when I was installed Ubuntu, the first time. I don't know how exactly it ended up working, after a lot of different things I was able to get it to boot.

I like to suspend my laptop when I close the lid. I have squeeze installed. When I open the laptop lid all lights indicated that it coming out of suspend but the monitor stays black.

However yesterday that did not work but that was the first time. My laptop is an acer 5251-1513 amd processor v120, and hd 4250 radeon

Debian Multimedia :: Login Screen (GNOME) Stays Black

Apr 7, 2016

After applying upgrades to debian 8.2 on a lenovo yoga3 notebook and a reboot I am not able to login into my GNOME desktop. The login screen stays black. If I press the power button to suspend I can see the login screen with default background for ~1 second before it turns black again. What can I do to fix this issue? Is there a way to login via terminal and do a rollback? Can I use my home folder an personal settings if i reinstall debian and keep the /home partition?

General :: Cpu Load Tops Out And Stays There?

Nov 20, 2010

I don't know where to begin with this problem, because I'm not really sure what is causing it. What is happening is that every now and then my cpu load jumps up to 90-100% and just stays there. Programs that typically take a 1-5% of the cpu load start taking up around 40-50% of the total load. Everything bogs down to the point that only a restart fixes it. Does anyone have any idea on what might be happening?To give a little background, I recently switched from Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome to a dual boot with Windows XP and Slackware 13.1 with XFCE, Slackware being the main boot. What I'm experiencing now never happened with Ubuntu either. I will say that it does seem to happen when I stream media (movies and music) online, but it doesn't just start immediately. The increase occurs at irregular times, so I can't pinpoint one thing that causes. Moreover, I can't find a process that might be causing it

Ubuntu Installation :: Cant Boot Windows 7 / Getting A Black Screen And Windows Does Not Load?

Mar 21, 2011

i have just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a pre installed windows 7 system. Ubuntu is working really well but the only problem is that when I try to boot into windows,

I get the windows sign and then I get a black screen and windows does not load. It seems to be an easy problem to solve because I can actually boot windows 7 in

safe mode with no problems at all! The problem is there when I try to boot windows 7 normally. To be honest I only need windows for a project that uses MSQL server.

Ubuntu :: Won't Load Desktop - Switches To Black Screen And "sudo Startx" Gives Error Log

Feb 21, 2010

Few days after installing Ubunto 9.10, during installation of gstreamer, the installation utility got stuck, and with it the whole desktop icons. (I think the gstreamer has nothing to do with it). When I tried to execute some icon, like the terminal, it will not open. After restarting the computer, I get a tty1 login terminal and not the graphical one (tty7). When pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7, nothing happens. It switches to a black screen. "sudo startx", gives some error log. I already reinstalled the X-server, ubuntu desktop and other stuff.

What can be the problem? Is it related to my video card (nvidia 7600 GT)? I didn't install any nvidia specific driver. This happened to me earlier and I reinstalled Ubunto. I think maybe I should move to some other distribution.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flash Player - Video Streaming Seased - Wouldn't Load It Stays Searching Forever

Jan 20, 2011

I have been using this thread for a couple of days and just getting exposed to the vast world of ubuntu after succesfully partitoning the hard drive through a live cd. (a copy of linux for dummies book)So naturally after getting adjusted to the new os I started seeking for downloadable media and applications.Started with flashplayer last night and installed after watching some videos.But when I tried the same thing with vlc through the terminal command; sudo apt-get vlc

The video streaming seased because they wouldn't load it stays searching forever! Now ..... doesn't work.I am afraid that by tampering with the command it also affected the flash player file.This is an ethernet connection , 100 mb/s, netgear router.

Ubuntu :: Taskbar Stays On Screen?

Jul 4, 2011

When I run a program in fullscreen (a ..... video, for example), the taskbar stays on screen. To be abundantly clear, I mean the bar along the top with the power button and user name on it. It stays on the screen, but I can't interact with it; the mouse clicks "under" it as if it weren't there. I'm sure Compiz has something to do with it as it's as new problem, but I don't know how to fix it. I tried disabling Window Decoration, I tried setting it so it only applied to windows with !(state=fullscreen), but nothing seems to work.As a related problem, the menu button in Firefox (the one to the left of the tabs) just appeared out of nowhere. How do I make that go away? And the menu bar as a part of the taskbar doesn't work any more. Where's the option for that?

Fedora Hardware :: Black Screen \ Can Force A Shutdown, Login And Get The Same Black Screen?

Mar 6, 2010

I was messing around with the screen orientation and thought it would be funny to orient it sideways. Big mistake The screen went black.I can force a shutdown, login and I get the same black screen. I tried hooking up an external monitor and the monitor showed no input so I'm guessing my laptop doesn't have that capability with Fedora.This is my main computer.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Instability - Screen Stays Up Momentarily

Feb 18, 2011

Just upgraded to 10.04 on Wed and noticed an instability. It's intermittent, so can not tell you what triggers it, but when it kicks off a commandline screen comes up, with a command pointing to some battery monitor software, and I have a desktop, so no battery and wonder why my machine has a battery monitoring software, when none should be installed. Anyway the screen stays up momentarily, then the system tries to go into something like a screen saver and I get all garbage on the screen, loose all ability to control and have to perform a hard reboot to recover from this.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Stays Blank After Turning Off An On?

Aug 16, 2010

I just installed Mythbuntu 10.04 and have my Sony LCD TV connected via a DVI to HDMI cable. The issue I am encountering is that everything works fine until I turn off the TV and turn it back on later, because the screen stays blank and from what the TV tells me there is no signal. I have no idea what can cause this. I checked the TV settings in terms of power saving and turned it all off. I turned off the screen saver in Ubuntu, but still the same issue. My motherboard uses the ATI HD4200 onboard graphics engine

Debian Configuration :: When Shutdown Screen Always Stays On And Then It Hangs

Dec 12, 2015

I'm using Debian Sid xfce on my lenovo laptop. When i try to shutdown, the screen always stays on (the fans turn off). It says "reached target shutdown", then this happens: [URL] .... and then it hangs. I have to press the power button to shut it down. (I have the same problem with reboot). I had the same issues with Jessie.

Things i tried so far and didn't work:

Code: Select allshutdown -h now
shutdown -p now
systemctl poweroff
init 0

I edited /etc/default/grub and added the following options at "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT":

acpi=force, acpi=off*, acpi=noirq

*acpi=off: shutdown (not reboot) worked a few times but i didn't have wifi and power manager didn't seem to work

none of them worked..

I have no energy or wake up options at my BIOS.

I found out that i can normally reboot with the Alt + sysrq + REISUB key combination.

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 :: Will Not Load After Load - Splash Screen

Jun 30, 2010

I noticed my Firefox loading rather slow (took around 5 - 7 seconds to load and navigate pages, even google, and it would sometimes become unresponsive), I thought it may have been a addon problem, so I opened up a new Firefox profile with no addons but the browser crashed upon loading the certain page I was trying to view, and I figured I'd look into it later and use Chromium for a while (I'll be open, I was trying to watch an pron tube site, and when your, you know, you don't really feel like stopping to go technical and try to fix it or whatever), but Chromium said that the flash player wasn't installed. I thought it was kinda odd, but then again I didn't want to go technical and thought maybe since mozilla firefoxs engine loaded the flash, I'd use Mozilla Seamonkey which uses the same gecko engine. The flash wasn't working either on there.

I tried looking up to see if there was a 64bit deb package for flash, but they didn't have it, and I seen someone mention that doing the 'apt-get upgrade' upgrades it, so I did that, and it also said it installed some extra packages when doing it, but I figured it was just that getlibs grabbing the extra dependencies and went along with installing them (after all there shouldnt be much to lose since its from the repository, right?)

I restarted the computer to give the updates a chance to take effect (it didn't mention to restart, but I thought I'd go ahead and do it anyways to ensure it updated okay).

This is where the booting problem comes in: When my laptop restarted, the loading was going across very slowly (I have ubuntu studio installed through regular ubuntu, so it was showing the text filling up), normally it would just fill a little bit of the first "U" in "Ubuntu Studio" and then be done quickly, but now it goes slowly all the way, and when it fills "Ubuntu Studio", it stills stays there, it doesn't load on.

I pressed the down button to see the terminal and it says this:

I have no clue what to do now, and I wanted to ask for help before I go trying myself editing the command line boot process.
