I have just installed Lubuntu onto my old Dell Inspiron 8100 laptop. When I try to run the OS normally I get blackscreen on startup. However, when I click F8 and choose advanced options --> recovery mode, I am able to reach a text-terminal prompt.
It appears that I am able to use the OS from here but I am new to Lunix and am having trouble working through my problem without a GUI. My guess is that my video driver, GeForce2 Go is old and I need to adjust the driver settings or install a new driver.
Would somebody please walk me through a step by step of how to do this.
