Using ubuntu install on VirtualBox with 1024MB RAM, 25GB HD with windows 7 and NVidia card (440?) on host machine. Very similar problems to others but THIS IS NOT A DUPLICATE as the responses to near identical questions have not helped. One person asked the question I wanted but this was marked as duplicate with no answer given!
SO my question is: after using GRUB menu to choose failsafeX and that not working, I press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to terminal. However what I get is a black screen with white text and a flashing cursor that has no apparent function. It is not a terminal, nor is it the console. So does anyone know HOW to get to a terminal so I can attempt to sort out the driver issue which is probably the problem?
Thank you! Luis Alvarado your help would be much appreciated!
