I downloaded Ubuntu 14.04LTS and burned a dvd. I then booted on that dvd and ran the install on a newly formatted hard drive with fat32. The hard drive used to have windows XP and is a Maxtor 80 GB ATA/133 HDD. Install finished and rebooted on the hard drive and a black screen came up with:
[17.016035] [drm:drm_crtc_helper_set_config] *ERROR* failed to set mode on [crtcilo] [17.016038] fbcon_init: detected unhandled fb_set_par error, error code -22 [17.016119] [drm:drm_crtc_helper_set_config] *ERROR* failed to set mode on [crtcilo]
Then I get the ubuntu desktop but the mouse nor the keyboard works. Nothing happens-- till I hold in the reset button or pull the plug. I tried reinstalling and an error came up for some add-on would have to be installed manually later.
What is going on here?
