View Full Version : [ubuntu] Black Screen after Log-in when using Integrated Graphics

May 10th, 2012, 03:02 PM
NOTE: I meant after the Purple Page, but not sure how to change title.

I am fairly new to Ubuntu, but love it already.

I recently went into grub and switched back forth between integrated and discrete (nvidia) graphics and now when I boot using the integrated card I get to ubuntu's purple page and then after that the screen goes black and nothing.

I may have accidentally modified some file while trying to follow some advice online, but not sure what files. Maybe "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" but I'm not sure and if so I can't remember what I did to it.

What can I do to get it working again?!?!?
