Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I have been trying install Ubuntu 12.10, but as soon as it gets past my BIOS and to the screen with the blinking line in the top left, I get a no video input message on my TV (like when you turn the TV on with nothing connected).

I have used Live DVDs of both betas, alphas, and the daily build all with exactly the same results.

Has any one else had this? Is there a fix?

Does this mean I can never upgrade my Ubuntu again? (12.04 works. I've been using it since beta.)

My PC, while old, should run this fine.

  • CPU: 2x Intel P4 HT @ 3ghz
  • GPU: Nvidia Geforce 310 via HDMI
  • RAM: 2 Gb DDR 2
  • HDD: 2 x 7200 rpm SATA

Please help me. I use Ubuntu exclusively on my PC and would like to keep doing so.

I think we are accepting Ubuntu + 1 questions selectively now, but this is probably a bug with 12.10 which means it probably should be closed as off-topic. More background here. –  Tom Brossman Sep 28 '12 at 11:14
