    upgraded kernal using dist-upgrade getting blackscreen

    Code:
    Current Operating System: Linux 3.2.0-56-generic-pae #86-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 23 17:51:27 UTC 2013 i686
    Hey guys i have a problem i upgraded my kernel and i got a black screen every time i booted into the upgraded kernel, so i typed nomodeset by hitting E within the grub and adding it to the boot options and it worked perfectly. So obviously I set it to make it permanent using sudo nano /etc/default/grub it did not work and every time i boot i either get a console (I can tell that the graphic card is failing or I get a black screen after the Ubuntu splash screen)

    After upgrading the grub I did run (of course- in order to save changes to the actual grub menu)
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    So I am confused, prior to upgrading the kernel everything was working fine. (Never had an issue like this before..)

    I am using an Acer Aspire One D270-1628
    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    my /etc/default/grub
    reads
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
    where it needs to be set, maybe someone can help me figure this out..because I am lost and am stuck using an outdated kernel in order to boot into my system normally, without issues.
    P.S people on the IRC, are suggesting that nomodeset is a bad fix/some say it is a good fix... I am confused... what can I do in order to get my Ubuntu machine working as perfectly as it was prior to the new kernel upgrade?

    Some other people are suggesting I stick to the old outdated kernel, but I am worried that If I upgraded and this kernel does not work, that perhaps all the newer ones from now one will continue down the same path not working? Does this make sense, or would I need to sit this kernel upgrade out? Sorry I am confused this never has happened to my machine. Usually I can upgrade flawlessly.

    More Information:
    Code:
    Distributor ID:    Ubuntu
    Description:    Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS
    Release:    12.04
    Codename:    precise
    Please let me know If I need to provide more information In order to fix or diagnose this issue.

    bump...any one? I have tried reinstalling the graphic drivers via additional drivers but that cause more problems then fixed for previous kernel versions..
    anyone know what i can do ?! do I stay away from kernel updates from now on?!

    upgraded kernal using dist-upgrade getting blackscreen? intel not supporrted?

    hey guys updated my kernel using sudo dist-upgrade and keep getting a blackscreen (after the grub menu -> right before the login menu should start)
    The problematic kernel is
    Code:
    Current Operating System: Linux 3.2.0-56-generic-pae #86-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 23 17:51:27 UTC 2013 i686
    
    Looking @ Xorg.org I was able to see that the problem is that the new kernel cannot find any displays ( something wrong with the graphic driver / Process )
    While version
    3.2.0-55-generic-pae worked perfectly fine!

    Someone is suggesting because I am using an Acer Aspire One D270-1628 that intel is not working to support any hardware from kernel versions 3.2.0-56

    What would I do if i cannot upgrade my kernel-successfully? I do not want to have an obsolete ubuntu system that is going to be forever out of date. I have tried various boot parameters, without any success such as nomodeset.

    Is this the case, I just got this laptop a year ago..I cannot imagin that the hardware would be unsupported so quickly.
    Here is some more information about the chip set. (graphic display)

    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)

    Here is some more information I was able to gather via using a working out of date kernel.

    Please someone let me know what I can do...I am all out of ideas.
    Do you think that newer kernels might work for me? Or is this the end of the line for my machine? At the moment I am using an out dated kernel, is that fine for now? What can I do fix this problem for later upgrades? I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin.
    I really hope there is something I can do to fix this problem, I really cannot go back to Windows and need to have my computer stable again.

    Thank you so much, Just was not sure if this was the right section/category. (It gets confusing sometimes),
    but thank you I will wait patiently.

    Repeat bumping AND double-posting will not earn you friends here. I have merged your threads.
    If you install Buntu 17.10 remember to download a new ISO file.

    Old files might contain a bug which can damage UEFI hardware. Updating an existing installation and upgrading to 17.10 (if one has faith in upgrades in general) are safe.

    From grub choose an older kernel for now. See if that works.
