View Full Version : [SOLVED] Black Screen During Upgrade Installation

November 20th, 2015, 09:40 PM
I am in the process of upgrading from 14.04 to 15.04. The upgrade process was about half-way complete, then the screen went black. The monitor light is on (green) so it is not in a sleep mode. Also, the activity lights on the front of my computer lead me to believe that it is not frozen. I have an NVIDIA video card, so I have experienced the black screen after installing an upgrade before, and am familiar with resolving the issue. I have never had a black screen problem during an upgrade installation though. I am not sure how best to handle it. If I force a reboot will it completely destroy everything, or will the upgrade resume where it left off?

Derp... Hitting the Enter key restored the display. Upgrade is still installing. Weird that the monitor was not in sleep mode and/or that moving the mouse did nothing....
