View Full Version : [ubuntu] Black Screen After Updates

January 25th, 2010, 09:10 PM
Everything went fine this morning on the Install. Then the box said there were 121 updates. I click YES to update. After an hr updates had finished, and reboot was necessary. Only a black screen came up. I have 2 lights on my keyboard blinking, no hard drive activity light. Waited several minutes, nothing. So I did a reboot back into my WinXP. Any suggestions?

Hi & welcome to the forums,

You didn't say what / how you were installing.

Are you installing Wubi (Ubuntu within Windows) or as a dual boot system (side by side with windows)

Bear with me, I'm only 24 hours old in ubuntu age.... I used Wubi installer (no CD burned). I set it as a dual boot, so I choose windows xp or ubuntu at startup. I re-installed unbuntu this morning, everything is working fine right now, but then I have NOT selected the "update 212 files' yet like I did yesterday, when the black screen came up and stayed.
