Black screen during installation with Radeon HD6450
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 13, 2013
I am suffering the black screen phenomenon which seems to be common with modern Radeon HD chips.
The problem is that this is at system install time, so I do not have the option of installing other drivers at this point.
This is a system I'm currently using as a HTPC, but I'm tearing my hair out with WMC and would prefer a Linux solution.
Please note from the hardware that there is no option of changing the graphics chip.
Lenovo Q180 (Intel atom D2700, Radeon HD6450A)
Hitachi 120GB HDD
I see the usual three options, Try Ubuntu, Install Ubuntu, Check disk.
After selecting any of these, the screen turns black and that's the end of everything.
At first I thought the problem was related to the USB key I was installing from, so I tried other media.
On about the fourth attempt I got the advances options screen.
I selected Try Ubuntu and everything seemed to work well, so assuming that I had now found working media I proceeded to reboot so that I could follow the Instal
Maverick: black screen during boot after mobo change
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 19, 2011
In an attempt to evade a regular kernel freeze with my Maverick system I just swapped the motherboard. Original: Asus K8V-VM; replacement Abit A8V. The north and south bridges are identical; I think the only substantial difference (aside from BIOS) is in the LAN hardware. I made no other changes.
grub menu is presented a previously, but boot does not complete: the system hangs with a blank/black screen. I have the impression that the boot process cannot find the boot device - but Gparted displays it exactly as I suspect - with the uuid that grub is trying to use.
How do I find out what the failure is caused by?
Black screen on boot after AMD ATI driver installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2011
Hello. After updating to Ubuntu 11.10, I have installed the latest Catalyst drivers, following the instructions provided at: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...98&postcount=5 [because from the additional drivers screen, the fglrx with post release updates gave errors when I tried to activate it]
However, after rebooting, I got a black screen a few seconds after the Ubuntu loading logo appeared. I've managed to step around this so far by going into the recovery mode from Grub, then dropping into the shell and then doing a sudo reboot now, which correctly starts Unity.
Here is some more info that may shed light on the issue for those more experienced than myself:
DISPLAY=:0.0 /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p

Black Screen During Upgrade Installation
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 26, 2015
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?
Debian wheezy: Black screen on launch after successful install
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 29, 2013
I wanted to share an issue I came across during my intents to install Debian wheezy on my PC desktop. After having passed all the installation steps (from image dvds) and asked to launch Debian from grub, the only thing I was able to contemplate was a black screen with a waiting cursor (which I can move with my mouse)!! I'm quite dissapointed to be honest. I was wondering if this was due to my graphic card, an nvidia 9800GX2 (dual GPU card) which connects a dual monitor set-up. This is my very first try of a linux distribution, so I really don't know what to do. Could you guys please provide me with some help? Thanking you in advance.

Ok I did manage to edit grub with nano. But I'm struggling to load the Nvidia drivers. I opened the root terminal and cd to the dir where i put the drivers. Then I type in ./appname.run. It starts something and i get Error: you appear to be running an X server;please exit X before installing. How on earth can I run the same script outside X (as I understand X is the OS window I run the terminal from)?? I'm working on it trying to read as much as I can on the nvidia readme files, but if you know the critical steps already, please share!. Thanks.
I have Black Screen during Xserver start.

Custom CentOS DVD built with user interaction during installation or first run
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 4, 2012
I would like some pointers for understanding how to build a custom CentOS DVD which will have some interaction with the user during installation or during the first run.
My requirements are the following:
CentOS (preferably 6.2 which is the latest at the time of writing the post) without GUI
JBoss 5.1.0 (no option for different version)
Ant 1.8+ (no option for different version)
(Possibly other software, eg for backup)
I want to build the DVD for using it in an appliance. So, after the intallation and/or first run, users will have access only through web applications.
The flow of installation or first run goes like this:
1) Gather data from user (like password for MySQL)
2) Create configuration files from user provided data
3) Run ant to build an application using the configuration files
4) Start jboss to perform some other required steps
5) Shut down jboss and run ant to build final application for deployment
6) Start jboss and
Black screen after suspend / black screen with cursor after reboot
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 27, 2013
I'm having 2 problems with Ubuntu 12.04
Laptop: Asus X202E-CT009H
Replaced the HDD to a Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD.
My BIOS settings:
Wake on lid open: ENABLED
Power Off energy saving: ENABLED
Graphics Config: 64M
Launch CSM: ENABLED (when I turn it off, it doesn't recognize my SSD)
Secure Boot Control: DISABLED
Issue 1: When I suspend my laptop by either clicking suspend on the top right corner or closing the lid of my laptop, the screen stays black when I try to resume again. No cursor, nothing, just black. I have to turn my laptop off by pressing the power button. I've read many threads about this, but everyone had discrete graphics. My laptop has integrated HD4000 graphics, and almost everyone got their problem fixed by some kind of Nvidia update.
Issue 2: When I reboot my system from either Windows or Ubuntu, then start Ubuntu from the Grub loader, there's once again a black screen. But this time the screen IS turned on, because it does display my cursor and some white unders
