My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
Today after installing all available updates, I restarted my PC and my monitor won't display anything. It is strange as I cannot even get it to display a BIOS screen during startup.
The PC is however booting up - the media player is picking up mediaTomb and streaming perfectly well.
I have tried a second monitor, same thing, absolutely no response during any part of boot sequence or thereafter. I have also tried a second cord as well, no difference.
I did recently upgrade monitors and when doing so enabled the nvidia driver rather than using the generic one, but have had no problems until this afternoon.
I am totally aware that this is a question that lacks a lot of details, but I am fairly new to Linux.
As the PC is up and running, I am happy to CTRL-ALT-T a terminal window and type in any suggestions you folks might have to get the monitor displaying anything.
