I'm new to Ubuntu 11.10. My father has a dual boot of Windows7 and Ubuntu 11.10 but had activated a driver for his Nvidia integrated card when he installed Ubuntu.
The other day I installed a MSI Radeon PCI Express card in his computer but when I booted to Ubuntu all I got was a purple screen.
I had read some things about going in to recovery but when I click it it doesn't do anything. Is this a conflict with the driver of Nvidia? Can anyone tell me step by step with commands on what I need to do to get his new Radeon card working? i would like to say thank you very much so far for your help.I did get the proprietary driver removed from the integrated nvidia graphics card and a successful reboot back into ubuntu with nvidia open source driver.Then i shut down the computer and installed the radeon graphics card,when i booted up to ubuntu i recieved the same result of a purple blank screen.If i try recovery mode Iget nothing.I checked your link of is my ati card supported and it says it does support this card.My first question is should i run the sudo command in terminal that builds up before the drivers for ati before i install the ati card then reboot?i also noticed on the new ati card it says this" Note that RadeonHD 6xx0 chips will need kernel 2.6.38 for open-source mode-setting, xf86-video-ati/radeon 6.14.0 for 2D acceleration (EXA/Xv), and Mesa 7.11 for 3D acceleration."
