View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen stalls upon install 12.04

April 25th, 2013, 03:54 PM
I just made a fresh install of 12.04 on a machine that used to tun 10.04.

I installed from a USB, the machine asked for reboot in order to finish the install. I did, logged in and my screen went strange. Now I cannot even get to the login screen. Guess this is a video card issue but have no idea how to solve this.

Boot the liveCD;
At the purple splash screen (stick figure keyboard emblems at bottom of screen) -> hit any key ->
Language screen -> escape key to accept the default ->
Booting options screen -> f6 key (other options) -> arrow down to the preset option(s)space or enter to accept and then the escape key to exit; Try the "nomodeset" option.
Enter key to continue the boot process to the GUI desk top;

If this is successful in the "try ubuntu" mode, Will advise on booting into the installation.

just try'n to help
