My problem is that more often than not, when I boot into Ubuntu 12.04 it brings me to the Command-line prompt and asks for my login. After logging in I have to either try using
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.confg
Reinstall the Nvidia 310 drivers in order to get my GUI back.
The error that the terminal puts out is
0 Screens found. I am quite confused as to why that is. Is it because I have a DVI input? But after using the
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.confg command or reinstalling the Nvidia 310 drivers, it's works fine until next boot.
It's a bit inconvenient so if someone knows a fix to this, it'd be so so appreciated.
I apologize if there already is a question like this posted, but I did check and I couldn't see anything from what I saw.
I originally installed the Nvidia drivers using the jockey. (Additional Drivers) However now when I have to reinstall the drivers I just use the .run file from the website.
