View Full Version : [ubuntu] Will not boot after install
July 27th, 2011, 04:23 AM
I have tried 11.04 and 10.10 64 bit and after I install the OS my laptop will not boot. The install goes great after being booted from a USB but after the install when it tries to boot from the HDD all that happens is the screen lights up and goes dark repeatedly.

i solved my problem by:
install 8.04 64 bit alt version.
installation smooth and i can login.
use software update, update it to 10.04.
updating smooth but the problem still same, blank screen after grub.
But at least the grub option is show.
i choose recovery mode and able to login.
use hardware driver and update the graphic card (i use ati 5670)
now i able to login with normal mode.
hope it help you.

nomodeset is what you need most likely. This gets added to a line in the grub entry for starting your system. It's done at the time of startup,
It's a very common problem, try http://www.google.com/#hl=en&cp=17&gs_id=1o&xhr=t&q=nomodeset+ubuntu+11.04&pf=p&sclient=psy&source=hp&pbx=1&oq=nomodeset+ubuntu+&aq=0&aqi=g3g-v2&aql=&gs_sm=&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=abb1f03500b21ec4&biw=1680&bih=884
and see how it plays. You can find many more posts on it by searching for "add nomodeset"
here's a post on it here in ubuntuforums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132&highlight=add+nomodeset
