View Full Version : [lubuntu] Problem Starting Lubuntu 11.10 After Installation

January 8th, 2012, 11:38 PM
After umpteen attempts to install Ubuntu in various guises failed miserably, I thought I'd succeeded with the 32-bit alternate version (http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/alternative-download) of Lubuntu 11.10.

However although everything seemed to go well with the install, I get a black screen when I start it.

After reading many emails with similar issues I've removed "quiet splash" and inserted "nomodeset" from the initial startup command file, and tried all variants I could locate for the graphics (starting with vga=791) but so far no success.

The machine is basically an Asus A7N8X motherboard with a NVIDIA nForce2 chipset.

When I try to start it, it gets as far as saying:

Starting NTP server ntpd [ok]
Starting bluetooth [ok]

and that's it.

Any help gratefully received.
