I have purchased a Lenovo 505G from best buy today. I upgraded the memory to 8GiB.
I am getting a black screen displaying tty1 login/password screen, as it would not let me display the graphical interface.
Frustrated as I was with the primitive screen I went and reinstalled.
It worked yayyyyy! booted to the GUI with ease.
Installed updates/checked for drivers
I installed this driver for my system: ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver (post release)
system called for a restart, which i did, but...
WAMMMMM Black Screen with a lot of stuff saying 'OK OK OK......etc'
Really agitated because it would not let me out of this menu, I reinstalled Ubuntu and everything seems to be OK. However, I want to utilize my APU, but I don't want to risk another crash. Is there any way to get the proper driver/s that I need, or should I give the proprietary driver another try?
Its not the best notebook, but I would still like to use it to its fullest capability. I would be very grateful if someone could help me out.
My current specs are as follows:
CPU: AMD A6-5200 APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics × 4
Graphics: VESA: KALINDI
Available drivers through SETTINGS:
- ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver (post release) "caused crash"
- ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX driver (experimental beta)
- Experimental AMD bianary Xorg driver and kernel module
I really don't know what to do here.
