View Full Version : [ubuntu] Black screen after reboot.

April 24th, 2013, 10:37 AM
Hi guys,

I have a Dell Xps 15 l502x and have been trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on it for the past few days.

I am installing it via USB and the installation completes successfully, also after the various updates the systems is asking to reboot, I do that and the machine reboots normally without any issues.

After the first reboot after the installation all is fine, the OS is fully functional, after that though when I turn the PC off or just reboot for the second time after the installation the purple screen briefly appears and then the screen turns completely black, it is not projecting the black color it is as if the screen wasn't even turned on, and that's while the machine is still running.

Waiting does nothing, I have completely reinstalled it 2 more times and had the exact same problem, the second reboot after the installation always results in that issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

What graphics card and drivers do you have? You might want to try 12.04
