    4. No video after grub (usually), but recovery/low graphics mode works just fine.

    Can I make low graphics mode "default" so I don't have to boot into recovery every time?
    Look at post 101: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...&postcount=101
    You could use safe mode (which is the low graphics mode).
    It will remember your last choice.

    I know that laptop has Intel graphics, but what does
    Code:
    sudo hwinfo --framebuffer
    Or...
    Code:
    lspci -nn | grep VGA
    show as your video chipset?

    Does anyone have no problem with 32 bit 11.04 but issues with 64 bit 11.04?

    I'm running 3 i386 boxs and 2 AMD64 boxs. I am having less issues with the 32bit versions, but I also think that's got something to do with the hardware I'm using, the age and all the "pieces" in them.. My 32bit boxes are limited to that by hardware.

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Thank you MAFoElffen and everyone else, for all your help.

    Background:
    If you remember, the only thing that worked for me before, was changing my /etc/default/grub with
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi=off quiet splash"

    The problem I had after that was that the system freezes on Shut Down.

    I kept troubleshooting. The only instructions I had not tried(from MAFoElffen's to do list) was the vga=xxx option, so I decided to try that today.

    I got a list of mode numbers from here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VESA_BI...o_mode_numbers

    Happy to say that a few of them worked for me and the best one is vga=824

    The following line is now in my /etc/default/grub
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash vga=824"
    and subsequently ran

    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Everything is normal as before. No black screen after grub. Shutdown problems gone, obviously. All kernels, including 2.6.38-9, 2.6.38-8, 2.6.35-28 boot fine.

    Wahoo!

    That's why I specifically mention using "hwinfo --framebuffer" which will return the modes that "your" installed hardware says it supports. Less to have to try. The hardest part in that is converting the hex values to decimal to use in the " vga=xxx "

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I am also at an end to what to try.

    I have a Alienware laptop running a Nvidia GTX 460M graphics card.

    I do get the grub screen. The operating system does boot, but I get a black screen and I cannot change to another terminal either. The only way I can boot and see anything is with nomodeset.

    I have been able to boot to command line using the text and nomodeset option. I then tried to install the Nvidia graphics via:

    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    sudo nvidia-xconfig

    I would still get the black screen. So, I then downloaded the correct drivers from Nvidia's site and installed them at the command line. It appeared to work. It installed without any errors and said it uninstalled the old drivers. Still I get a black screen.

    After the above step, I was unable to boot into gui mode at all with nomodeset. I went in and renamed the xorg.conf file to .old. Now I can boot into gui again using the nomodeset option.

    I am at a complete loss to what to try next. I do not want to have to boot with nomodeset forever, as I only get 640x480 graphics. Any help is very much appreciated.

    Please post your current xorg.conf and the results from these commands
    Code:
    sudo hwinfo --frambuffer
    sudo hwinfo --monitor
    xrandr
    xranr -q
    That should give us an ideo of what your hardware is, what it is capable of and what driver is loaded.
