    10.04 + ATI 5850...no signal at all

    So much for "It just works" LOL!! j/k

    Whenever I try to test out the Live part of Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC with a XFX Radeon 5850 XXX Edition I get...

    NOTHING!

    I get the puked on looking splash screen and then the monitor goes off and says no signal. I tried VGA, HDMI and DVI and still the same result. I have no other spare cards to try out. I even tried redownloading both 32 and 64 versions....same thing. Tried USB Flash instead of wasting yet another disc. Same thing.

    What gives?

    I know....but it is pretty darn close to the release day. This needs to be solved now.

    Beta doesn't mean it's ready to go for everyone, If you can't solve the problem, I suggest waiting for the RC to come out. That being said, have you tried starting in safe graphics mode? If not, press any key at the initial boot screen, then press F6 and select nomodeset, then continue to boot.

    I wish I had looked at this earlier =P Just did an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.04 on my XFX 5850 and now no video output at boot (I get a single flash of a loading screen after I get past the grub menu)

    Re: 10.04 + ATI 5850...no signal at all

    I was having a similar problem with my radeon 5770, screen reporting no signal. Installing the proprietary drivers seems to have fixed the issue. I had to use a vga(saw that you tried that) cable to actually log on then after installing the drivers I was able to switch back to hdmi. I used the latest daily build of 10.04 if that makes any difference.
