Is this one a laptop with switched hybrid graphics? That is why it is in low-graphics mode. It is switched to the Intel GPU.
Please post the result of
And post the make and model...Code:lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller : Intel Corporation 82G33/G31 Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:29c2] (rev 10) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller : NVIDIA Corporation G96 [GeForce 9500 GT] [10de:0640] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
the make and model i am not sure because i haven't pulledd out the card. this is one just came in and i just started with it. for you i am attaching the output of the "sudo nvidia-bug-report.sh"
also, should i try disabling the onboard graphics (intel)?
Thanks so much for this thread!
I have a HP laptop with Intel i915 graphics and an ATI graphics card.
I had big problems with Ubuntu 12.04, and got it to boot past the black screen by using kernel args:
"nomodereset nosplash acpi_osi=Linux".
Well this failed totally when I upgraded to 12.10.
I finally got things to work with an additional kernel arg:
Good job and happy you are going again.
I am having the same problem, probably due to graphics drivers having to be recompiled.
What I can do: get into GRUB, edit lines etc. Boot with kernel 188.8.131.52
What I can't do: boot with kernel 184.108.40.206 use ctrl-f1 to get into a terminal session
I am stuck at the following:
However, in GRUB I do not see the word "single" so I do not know how to use this instruction correctly for kernel 3.x. So what I got so far is:Note on the "text" option. Stopped working as of Kernel 3.x.x. I have a Luancpad and Upstream Linux (kernel.org) bug opened on this. My workaround for this is to substitute the option "single" and either use the "root prompt" or to use "resume" which should then resume to a tty text prompt.
/boot/vmlinuz-220.127.116.11-generic root=UUID=f919a2b9-c794-4fce-9782-bb7c34acf48e ro nosplash
What should I put behind nosplash as --verbose text does not work for kernel 3.x?
I have tried reinstalling the open-source drivers with this guide: http://askubuntu.com/questions/77661...river-on-my-pc
The weird thing is, upon reboot I got image on my screen, could login etc BUT it was all shifted! The left 1/3 part of my desktop was showing on the right. My mouse behaved like that too, I couldn't get to the left part of the screen by moving the cursor left, where the image physically was, I had to move it to the right, of the screen to see it appear on the other side again. I thought, maybe I have to reboot and if it still isn't right I'll make a screenie. But now I'm back to only GRUB...
I really hope someone can help, as this computer needs to be back at my parents this afternoon and I don't wanna go back to Windows.
Edit: I can get into 18.104.22.168 by putting nomodeset in the kernel line in GRUB. Any pointers for what I should do now? Did I use the correct manner of installing the open-source drivers?
Edit 2: found som errors in the xsession-errors file:
But the file was altered while typing this so it might be errors with the VESA driver. Also checked kernel.log but found nothing.Code:openConnection: connect: Bestand of map bestaat niet cannot connect to brltty at :0 (xfsettingsd:1782): xfsettingsd-WARNING **: Failed to get the _NET_NUMBER_OF_DESKTOPS property.
