View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Installation - Boots in Black Screen

August 18th, 2011, 07:27 PM

I have installed Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition in my Acer Aspire 4741Z laptop. I used the 'Use entire hard disk' option for installing. The installation ends with a successful message. After reboot it displays a command line and prompting me for user name and password. I couldnt see my desktop. i tried sudo setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=00 but nothing happened. The screen automatically switches to a black screen when sudo service gdm start command is typed.:confused:

Please help me...

Wow, new on this forums and already got that far?

it should work if you add

gdm &

to the end of the file /etc/rc.local before the exit 0 line
