I have been trying to install Edubuntu 14 04 on to our Hp workstation xw4200, Intel pentium, 4 SPU 3.2GHz . I am using a USB boot drive which I created following instructions on edubuntu download section. The installation seems to go fine but upon restart, screen art comes up once and then goes black. I can force a terminal and after some research suspected my nvidia driver.ven the problem. I purged Nvidia driver and installed the one recommended but now it brings up the screen but no further. My video card is NVDIDIA NV37GL Quadro PCI-E Series rev a2

I have gone to terminal and tried the following sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get --reinstall install ubuntu-desktop sudo apt-get install unity

sudo shutdown -r now

I have also tried the solutions outlined here: Upgrade from 13.10 to 14.04 no unity dash for default user special compiz config

UPDATED I have removed all NVIDIA Drivers and it works, slowly and with really low resolution. I would love a solution to get the resolution back and full functionality.
