View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to boot into Low Graphics Mode?

September 11th, 2010, 05:11 AM
Hey all, I'm new to all this so I'm gonna just detail what happened.

Installed ubuntu successfully on the hard disk through live CD.

My machine is a ASUS K40IN, with Graphics card GEForce G102M.
Can't get ubuntu to run normally so I have to access through terminal in recovery mode.
I need to install the drivers for the graphics card so I can run ubuntu in some form of gdm, otherwise I'm pretty much blind since I'm not too good with code.

/etc/x11/xorg.conf does not exist, so I can't use the exploit to get me to low graphics mode.

Need help here, if there's a command I can enter into grub to run me in low graphics mode, anyone?

I'm keeping http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=334 and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1230528 in view, since it's very possible I'm running into the same problems.

But first things first: I have the nvidia driver loaded on my ntfs usb stick ready to transfer and install but I can't seem to mount it proper. FailsafeX graphics mode does not work. I get a blank black screen. :\

Any help offered would be appreciated!
