    Black screen on bootup unless acpi=off

    2 possible solutions if you have this or similar problem.
    First fix is on 2nd post.
    Second fix is here:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1070150

    I had this working after running updates with acpi off, but now after more updates this is an issue again.. Some help greatly appreciated.
    I would hear the bongos that play when the login screen appears, but the screen would be black.

    Ubuntu 13.04
    My laptop is Toshiba Satellite U305-S5097

    Did not see any acpi settings in BIOS, not very many settings at all actually..


    acpi seems like it might not be related. As with the fix, during reboot often still get black screen.. Occasionally it goes through without a problem, but it takes a series of reboots to do so.
    Please help.

    Solved.
    Solution is;
    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    Edit this line:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    To look like this:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor"
    Save the edit.
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    sudo reboot

    Not solved. acpi seems unrelated to my problem now. Edited first post.

    You would be best to start a new thread as the title of this one won't reflect your new issue, whatever that is. Cheers.
