View Full Version : [ubuntu] 9.10 to 10.4 upgrade fails on HD 5770.

It seemed to upgrade the first round and looks like it booted back into Ubuntu (I had Purple background) and asked for updates and I installed them and on reboot I lose video when entering desktop. I see the initial purple Ubuntu loading screen, but when it goes away I lose video completely and my monitor says it's unplugged.

I tried the grub nomodeset without luck. I am at the desktop in safe mode. If someone can tell me how to edit a file to enable the graphics again, I'd be forever grateful.

Sorry if this was answered, but search only gave me help with the Intel 850 graphics problems and not what I was seeking.

I got it working from safe mode by just installing the restricted drivers in there and when I rebooted in normal mode, it worked!
