View Full Version : [xubuntu] After upgrade problem

March 22nd, 2010, 04:14 AM
Dell Latitude, Neomagic 256ZX(I think) video card, 256 MB RAM
Well, after the upgrade went fine, I rebooted and was greeted by a purple 10.4 screen, after which I was greeted with a blcnk screen with 6 blinking dots. I don't know if this is a new video driver failure (its a pretty old laptop, theres no need for new drivers) or if its a grub problem. Since I can't get to a grub it goes BIOS>Purple 10.4>nothing and I don't get a terminal login, the laptop is now considered bricked. However I was okay with the install and was wondering if theres a way to fix it.

A device is considered 'bricked' when you can't reinstall the software that powers it. Is that your case? Anyway, as you might know, Lucid is still a beta, and if you want to help testing, check out the Testing section.
