View Full Version : Just installed 10.10 netbook i386

Everything seems to have been installed correctly, but after I rebooted and inserted my PW the computer screen goes to a purple background, no desktop. Also, I did a full install, ubuntu is the only OS on my Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407. Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you

Sounds like the display manager died. It's X and gdm. So from your purple screen try Ctrl-Alt-F1, log in, do 'sudo service gdm stop', do 'sudo delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf', then 'sudo service gdm start'. Hopefully you'll get a lowres windowed display. Then find out what video chip and google see. Maybe you'll want to install the manufacturer proprietary driver.
