View Full Version : [SOLVED] No video

October 16th, 2007, 08:00 PM
First of all, machine specs:
Athlon 2500+ Barton
Asus A7N8X
GeForce 5200 Ultra
Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 150
Sound Blaster Audigy Platinum

So, what happens... when I put the LiveCD in, I get the boot screen. When I make my selection, boot progress shows up, and the machine boots fine. However, it just goes to a black screen. I can CTRL-ALT-F1 to get to a terminal just fine.

Booting in safe graphics mode or normal mode produces the same result. I've also tried all three outputs on my card (DVI, VGA, S-Video) alone and in combination, with the same result.

dmesg (http://www.meyer-family.info/dmesg)
Xorg.log (http://www.meyer-family.info/Xorg.log)

Any ideas? At first I thought it was the video card, but there are several reports in the functional hardware thread of GeForce 5200s working fine.


//edit: MythBuntu RC1, and this machine has had no problems with previous versions of Ubuntu.

To rule out issues with our disk, can you try with the freshly released gutsy disk? If the problems persist there, its an issue with gutsy in general.

I had the same problem. Adding acpi=off to the start of the boot options fixed it

Quite frankly, I don't know why I didn't try that before, I've had APIC problems with this machine since I built it.

I've been hanging around my Macs too long... the user-friendlyness is melting my brain!!! =P~

In other words... DING! PROBLEM SOLVED!

Thanks so much.
