    Kernel 3.8.0-13 boots to a black screen OR messes up resolution

    Today I updated my 13.04. There is new Kernel 3.8.0.13.27. I ran update through "Software Updater", the update went fine and I had to restart my machine.

    After restart Ubuntu booted to a black screen. I could hear the login-ready sound, after waiting for some more time I restarted again. Again Ubuntu boots to a black screen, nothing else; I typed my password on the black screen and I could hear login-successful sound. Still a black screen. I shut down my machine and rebooted with my older kernel 3.8.0-12-generic and Ubuntu boots fine.

    I was wondering if any one else had similar issue with the said kernel 3.8.0.13 upon update...

    There were a few bad commits in 3.8.3 which that kernel is based on. Some people reporting the same thing as you as a result.

    There is a new raring kernel building now that reverts those changes.

    Your kernel numbering is incorrect. Perhaps you meant 3.8.0-13.22.
    The newest (as of today) kernel is 3.8.0-13.23.

    Kernel numbering is correct AFAIK.

    ... see the attached screenshot of Synaptic.

    You does not boot with meta-package (linux-image), but with the related image (which is not the same numbering, as said by Harry above)

    I had a similar problem with intel integrated graphics. With the new kernel my laptop boots into an incorrect resolution and when I go to settings it won't detect the proper resolution. Booting to a previous kernel works fine though.

    Thanks dino99 for the clarification. However, I don't have Kernel 3.8.0-13.23 in my Synaptic but the Meta-Package 3.8.0.13.27 including linux-generic (complete) 3.8.0.13.27.
