View Full Version : [SOLVED] Black screen after selecting Install

November 20th, 2010, 08:01 PM
I see posts about black screens after installing... but I can't get that far.

I boot to the server install DVD. I select English and then Install Ubuntu Server. Screen goes black.

Same scenario but I select to check the disc for defaults and the same thing happens.

The same thing happens with a 10.10 desktop live DVD. The monitor goes to sleep.

Could it be an issue with the Radeon 9600? Is there a way to create an installation DVD (I don't have any blank CDs sitting around) that supports the card if it is the issue?

Pressed F6 to access boot parameters and removed the line "vga=788"

Installing now.
