    Dell D510: Live works ok, install does not.

    Hi

    Sorry if someone has already answered something similar but I did spend time looking through the forum for a solution.

    I have a Dell D510 laptop. Xubuntu 12.10 Live works fine. So I figured I would do an install.

    The install finishes, I take the cd out of the drive and awy it goes and reboots.

    Then I just get a black screen. Nothing at all appears on the screen.

    I have tried to get a console open, nothing.

    Any other things I should try?

    Paul

    Ok have now tried a different D510 and get exactly the same problem.

    Works fine in live mode. Once installed I just get a black screen.

    Have checked disk for defects - no problems.
    Have checked memory - no problems.

    Hi ,

    have you marked the box "Install 3rd party software" during installation ?
    If yes , then try to install again , without mark this box.

    Thanks

    from the live cd, can you issue the following so we can see what graphics card you have?

    Code:
    lspci
    OR

    Code:
    lshw
    Sounds like a graphics driver issue, I hate to see this bug happening to so many new users.

    Could you try Lubuntu and see if that works?
