Re: Broken Video after clean install
Hi!, d4ni, Welcome to this Forum, there is a full trouble shooter in Post #1 of the 'Blank Screen' Sticky.
A good deal more info is need than that partial screenshot. Please send a full mscreen shot, but use a Thumbnail or a link to a store site.
Does it happen before the log-in screen?, before login or after?
Does it do the same if booted to Recovery? using the various options?
Or when logged in to other Desktop choices?
Have you tried editing the Grub menu script ? say with 'nomodeset' added to the 'Linux' line. [To get to edit mode: press 'e' with the Ubuntu entry highlighted; 'Ctrl +x' afterwards, to boot.]
Can you get to a tty ? [ Text Terminal]?
If so, please Post:
lspci | grep -iA3 VGA
sudo apt-cache policy nvidia-current

They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
