View Full Version : [ubuntu] Newly installed Ubuntu boots once, then never again

I finally managed to install Ubuntu alongside Windows, and it booted the first time I tried it. I then went and booted Windows to make sure it still worked (it did) and tried to boot Ubuntu again and simply got a black screen. I tried reinstalling it from the liveCD, but it never booted again. I can, however, boot it if I boot it in recovery mode and then choose "resume".

What do I have to do to make this work?

If it is the black screen, then it most often is a video issue. What video chip/card?
