    Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    Hello,

    I have been trying to get my ati radeon hd 4650 card to work on boot up as it did when I inserted the liveCD.
    Currently, it's booting to a black screen after grub selection. I found that using the 'nomodeset' option with grub allows me to boot normally, but uses vesa drivers instead of the radeon driver that was previously used during install. Vesa drivers don't output my screens native resolution, so I would like to try and use the radeon drivers that were working perfectly.
    After looking at the Xorg.0.log log I found that the nomodeset option was forcing vesa instead of radeon. So what i would like to know is if there's another solution to the black screen it boots to when i choose to leave the 'quiet splash' option in place and boot normally.

    I am running lubuntu 13.04.

    Thank You.

    Re: Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    Methodize; Hi !

    There is the utility "Additional Drivers", that will seek and install an appropriate driver.
    I have not seen the desk top of a standard 13.04 install .. so these directions may not be accurate for location of the utility.
    Maybe:
    Launcher -> Software Sources -> menu in tool bar (top of screen) ->software sources ->(tab) Additional Drivers.
    And install the recommended driver.

    just try'n to help

    Hello Bashing-om, thanks for your help.
    The drivers I need are already installed in the system, I'm just trying to get around the issue of the black screen. I'm also wondering how it functions with the liveCD boot but not the regular boot.

    I don't want to use 'nomodeset' in grub because it disables KMS and falls back to vesa driver.

    Methodize; Hey;

    Boot with "nomeodset", install the recommended driver, remove the "nomodeset" option from the grub config file (with your favorite text editor) .. and I expect that you are set to go.
    To see the results: Terminal codes:
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C display
    lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
    all good now ?

    Re: Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    ok this is odd, the normal boot with the standard 'splash quiet' option woks only some of the time.
    I tried the normal boot just to see if by chance something went right, and it booted with the right resolution for my monitor. I tried to repeat the process by just rebooting and the black screen was back!
    unable to accept defeat i restarted a few times and on the 4th or 5th one it worked.

    It seems that perhaps the kernel is at some point booting things in the right order perhaps. I don't know too much about kernel related topics.

    here is my Xorg.0.log file when my computer boots normally just incase it's any good:

    And just now i kept track of the number of reboots between good boots and there are 3 black screened boots between every 1 good boot. could it be a kernel issue?

    Re: Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    Methodize; Hey.

    I also run an ATI graphic card (older), and I see little difference between your Xorg file and mine that is working.
    Now I am aware that there does exist in some instances race conditions, as to how to isolate this to a race condition, I presently do not know.
    But let's do this and see if it does seem to point in that direction.
    Boot to the grub menu, and in the boot line replace the term "quiet splash" with "text". - ctl+x to continue the boot process - You should now boot to a command line terminal interface.
    Login -username and password -password has no response to the screen for security reasons. Terminal code:
    Code:
    sudo service lightdm start
    Can you reliably start the GUI desktop each and every time (several attempts) ?
    key combo ctl+alt+f1 returns to the tty1 terminal, ctl+alt+f7 back to the GUI.

    At least this will give an idea as to what is not going on !

    Edit: To shutdown the system from CLI:
    Code:
    sudo shutdown -P now ##Will power the system down and off immediately 
    sudo shutdown -r now ##Will reboot the system, like right now !
    inquiring minds want to know

    Re: Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    I tried using the 'text' option but it just went straight to the black screen again. tty1 won't show either.
    I'm afraid I might have to dive into trying to make sense of race conditions, and they seem like a whole other ballgame.

    UPDATE:
    I have found this bug that has been submitted some time ago and it seems to dive into this issue.

    Methodize; Not Good !

    As you can not boot to the tty1 console, That indicates to me either/or/and file system corruption/hard drive hardware problems/grub files not found.
    If you can not boot to tty that rules out a lightdm problem in loading.
    Let's try:
    boot the liveDVD, as soon as the bios screen clears, depress and hold the shift key -> language screen, escape key to accept defaults -> boot options screen:
    a) Boot from 1st hard disk - assumming ubuntu is installed on the sda drive - results in what ?
    b) Check disk results in what ?
    c) Try ubuntu mode, does ubuntu perform well in this environment ?

    Just try'n to narrow things down and point us in a direction.

    searching every which way

    Re: Black screen on boot, 'nomodeset' disables radeon driver

    I've pretty much a narrowed it down to what i believe to be race conditions within the kernel. Now i just have to look into that, any ideas?
