I've recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop computer. In order to install Ubuntu, I had to unplug my video card because It was giving me problems, didn't allow me to install Ubuntu. So I unplug it, installed Ubuntu anyway, everything worked as charm, but now and I need to plug it again, but it doesn't work. Here some photos of the problem:

Screenshot of the problem #1

Screenshot of the problem #2

Appear that screen and nothing else... I didn't install any driver (I'm kinda noob), in Windows 7 all worked fine, so the problem is with Ubuntu, compatibility problem I guess.

Video Card: Zotac GeForce GT 240

O.S.: Ubuntu 12.04 (w/GNOME 3.2)

Memory: 2 Gb

HDD: 110 Gb

Processor: Intel Pentium D 2.80 Ghz

For your information to avoid confusion in future (please verify), as per my knowledge Zotac is maker of the graphics card like xforce But that is not the graphics card chip name. It should be like nvidia GT 240. –  Web-E Nov 22 '12 at 8:27
