Everything was working fine this morning. In the afternoon, I tried to boot into Ubuntu Lucid Lynx once again and I see no display. I hear the sound prompts of the login screen, so I press enter and type in my password, and I hear the sound of the Ubuntu Desktop. Which means that everything is working fine except that it does not display anything on my screen.
What can be a solution to this?
UPDATE: It Fixed itself, somehow. I still dont have a clue what the problem was so I will provide the details:
When I see the GNU grub menu, I see the following options
Ubuntu, with Linux 188.8.131.52 - generic Ubuntu, with Linux 184.108.40.206 - generic (recovery mode) Ubuntu, with Linux 220.127.116.11 - generic Ubuntu, with Linux 18.104.22.168 - generic(recovery mode)
I normally use the first option to login, but I would just see a message (I remember it had something like
RAM not loaded, or detected) and then it will go into blank screen.
I tried logging with the second option (recovery mode) as it looked like what I needed, and it had the oldschool dos-style blue menu, where I checked the option 'load ubuntu normally' and I was taken to a CLI.
I tried pwd, and it was showing my home directory. I navigated to one of my directories and compiled and executed a C++ program and it seemed everything was working fine. So I manually restarted and checked the first booting option, and everything is fine.
What could be a possible diagnosis of the problem I faced so that I dont face it again?
