My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?

When my laptop is booting I can't see the menu, but grub is there, if I press enter it boots my first option, it's only showing the purple screen.

I'm pretty sure it's some video setting, but I don't know what to change.

My Configuration: UBUNTU 12.04 LTS LAPTOP ASUS N56VZ GEFORCE GT 550M

Try the following:

Uncomment (delete the # from the beginning) the following line.


Save and exit gedit.

Use the update-grub command:

sudo update-grub
