View Full Version : [ubuntu] Monitor, sorta

April 21st, 2009, 07:11 PM
So, I have been using Hardy since it came out on mylaptop and am now building a computer to use with my TV and Boxee. I got the computer running and everything seems fine (connected to a TV). Then instead of a login page i get a black screen. The page is up and i can log in, but everything continues to be black

i have tried

sudo cp /etc/usplash.conf /etc/usplash.conf.bak

sudo nano /etc/usplash.conf

which was supposed to get me into monitor settings.

and also

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

which only lets me reset my keyboard.
Am i retarded? Skipping steps?
please :(
