I have Dell Inspiron N4030 and I installed Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition onto it.
But for some reason or another it will not boot into the GUI, I have installed and reinstalled Ubuntu and Ubuntu Netbook times over, but still with no luck.
The LiveCD is perfectly fine, but once I reboot its all in text-mode.
I tried doing 'startx' but it just made the screen go blank.
I don't know how, but at one point i was holding down the power button to turn it off after doing 'startx'.
I also tried nomodeset.
But then it just shutdown cause i was holding down the power button. Does anybody know how i could get the GUI to load on boot? Thanks for all your help!
If I installed higher version of Ubuntu say Ubuntu 11.04 is their going to be same problem.
Also I read it some where that problem is video driver
Please suggest solution
