I installed Ubuntu Server. It loads just fine to the grub selection screen but after making a selection, for some reason the monitor just goes into power saving mode and never wakes back up. I have to restart. The monitor cables are not loose or anything. Is there a way to fix this?
amye, press 'e' to edit the grub command line (the one that starts with 'linux') and add the word 'nomodeset' to the end of the line. If that doesn't work, also remove 'quiet' from the word list. That should at least give you some extra clues as to when it is getting stuck.
If that works, you may want to add this line to /etc/default/grub
And then run
To make it permanent.
