Today when I took my netbook out of sleep mode it went to a black screen. On reboot the same thing occurred. When I try Ctrl + Alt + F1 to get to a console, nothing happens. If I boot Ubuntu under an older version from my grub menu it does dump me to a console. If I run
startx from the console, the screen goes blank and I can't do anything.
I have an Acer Aspire One 722 on which I made a number of changes to get
suspend to work correctly. I finally got it working by installing the new AMD driver
amd-driver-installer-catalyst-12.10-x86.x86_64. I attempted to remove this to see if it would help but running
sudo sh /usr/share/ati/fglrx-uninstall.sh complained about missing files. Removing
/etc/X11/xorg.conf also had no effect.
I also upgraded my kernel using the following packages:
lspci output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/1628282/
I can provide any other information requested. Booting into Windows is working.
I should add I installed some updates prior to suspending the netbook.
Removed Kernel 3.4 booting with 126.96.36.199
On boot I now see the Ubuntu loading screen with the moving dots at the bottom but once it finishes it goes to tty1. From here I can go to ctrl+alt+F7 where I see the usual list of services being started. If I attempt to run startx it will switch to the aforementioned screen but then hang there not responding to any input.
