    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    It's a 32bit...

    I have two more machines to upgrade, our most important, but I will not touch them until this one works fine, just in case. They are 64-bit.

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Hi,

    I can try to help.

    I would suspect you should be finding the newest kernel of the type of distro you have. For example, if you have Precise or Quantal, get the kernel for it but also for the bit type you have. Assuming it is Raring Ringtail you are hoping to install, you should be looking for Raring Ringtail. This is the newest Raring I found in the list (not the rc version);

    http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...e/v3.9-raring/

    So for example, the files you should download should be something like this;

    linux-headers-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_i386.deb
    linux-headers-3.9.0-030900_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_all.deb
    linux-image-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_i386.deb

    The two files with "i386" will be different depending on your system type, which the above is 32. The "all" file (middle one) is what you need to download no matter your bit type though. Once you have the current Raring Ringtail kernel downloaded (the deb files), place them in a directory you can get to easily (home or downloads, for example) and then execute the previously given sudo commands.

    Of course, if someone else would like to correct me, please do so.

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Thanks guys
    I think that makes sense.

    I have downloaded 3 files:
    linux-headers-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_i386.deb
    linux-headers-3.9.0-030900_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_all.deb
    linux-image-3.9.0-030900-generic_3.9.0-030900.201304291257_i386.deb

    and shall install as instructed. But just before I do, I just want to check something.
    Will this fix the problem I have. Since I changed the Grub parameters to quiet and splash nomodeset the laptop does work. The problem that is left unresolved is:
    If I choose any of the "Recovery" options from the GRUB menu then the menu is fuzzy and unreadable
    IfI boot up then the text displayed during the boot is also fuzzy and unreadable. It also takes ages to boot. Once I get to the login screen everything is fine.

    If you could let me know, please.
    Cheers Jonners59

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if it will resolve those problems as I was merely attempting to help with what to download/how to install, so unfortunately I cannot provide further assistance on this. And you only get those problems when you go into Recovery? If so, if I were you I would personally either leave it as it is and come back to it when someone who knows the problem and cure is online and is willing to help. I would test it out (downloading and installing those files), but it wouldn't do any good as I wouldn't have your problem.

    So I hope (that) someone will pop in for your sake.

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Lightening Dragon,
    Many thanks.
    The problem has changed as a result of me adding the nomodeset to the GRUB boot parameters. So, No, it is not just Recovery it is also the passing scripts/text as the kernel is loading between GRUB menu and login screen. So it, in my humbled view must be something GRUB loads/setting. Hence my question.

    I am just wondering now if I should now just plonk this question under General and if I get a fix post back here. ...

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Hi
    I have been using ubuntu for about 5 yrs now and decided to reinstall, so backed up all of my data and went to reinstall on my compaq presario 6700 and nothing was coming up on the screen apart from a hazy purple screen, so plugged in external monitor and tried to run from that and it didn't show up . so then run from a live cd (arch) and that showed up on the external but not the lappy screen. so from the arch grub screen (was an old arch not the newer version) so booted into existing system and got into ubuntu and just thought it was my laptop screen that was buggered but then applied some updates and the screen appeared on the laptop screen. did another update and it disapeared again and haven't even been able to get an external monitor going from boot from then. i know the hard drive is fine as have put it in the other laptop and it works perfectly and know that the screen is fine and connected because i've seen it work on ubuntu 12.04 but only until certain updates. i cant actually find out what updates yet but reasonably certain (but not positive) it is a kernal boot error of some description.any help would be appreciated.
    p.s is there anyway i can check it's not an old MoBo dying rather than a software error?
    p.p.s if it is not saveable i was planning on using it as a media server for the house using serviio? thoughts?

    p.s my other lappy is using 13.04 and not entierly happy

    Thank you for any replys they are much appriciated

    Hi!, Mahuhu, It is not clear from your Post if you now have any access to a terminal, TTY, or to a GUI

    If you do, then please post the following & their outputs, highlight and select the '#' icon above the Reply text edit box, to put them into Code boxes.

    'Crtl+Alt+t' or 'Crtl+Alt+F1' to get a TTY or terminal
    Code:
    uname -r
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
    /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    Please also confirm if it will run OK from a LiveCd/Usb, or, if not, how far it gets, and what errors does it show.?

    Chao!, bogan.

    Here is the output of the above commands. I have managed to install an old version of ubuntu 10.04 and get it working on an external monitor. still no output on the main screen.. i have tried to install 12.04 and later but it won't show up on the external monitor. i have already installed 10.04 once but last time applied the updates and upgraded but as soon as i went to reboot it wouldn't show up on the external mon.
    You'll have to excuse any spelling errors i'm using a 25yr old t.v as the monitor and the resolution is rubbish so can't read the screen very well
    Cheers for any help
