View Full Version : [ubuntu] black screen and curser after install

November 26th, 2008, 08:00 AM
I installed Ubuntu clean on my laptop, it restarted after the install just fine and as soon as I downloaded and installed all the updates, I restarted and now as soon as it gets through the initial boot menu, it goes black with a blinking cursor. Any ideas?

did you try logging in to a command line... during startup when ubuntu is loading, press <ctrl><alt><F1> and try to log in there.
also, maybe look at this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=975890
