View Full Version : [kubuntu] Black Screen during boot before login

April 20th, 2009, 08:59 PM

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 which is kind of old and am using 8.10 Hardy Heron.

My issue is that I can't do anything! Right now the screen turns black and there is nothing I can do to restore it. Yesterday I could "ctrl + alt + F6/F7" and get the screen back but now nothing. It boots, as I can hear the sounds as the login screen comes up but it's black. I have tried earlier kernels to no avail. I have also looked over the forums with no luck.

I really could use some help. Could it be that my screen is dead? Is there a way to check that possibility out?
