Server stuck at black screen after reboot
i had just installed version 11.10 of ubuntu on my netbook. i have a intel gma 3150. the installation went well and there's no problem when using the demo mode.
After reboot when the installation finishes, the system wont boot even after trying both generic and recovery mode from the grub menu.however,i noticed that the hdd activity is still going on and i managed to get on to the login screen by putting the system to sleep mode and wake it up again but this is extremely inconvenient .
After much effort of trying such as uncommenting GRUB_TERMINAL=TERMINAL and GRUB_GFXMODE update intel graphics driver to latest, uninstall lightdm and uses gdm, disable plymouth, all the effort failed. the only thing work is nosetmode and i915.setmode=1 xforcevesa in the GRUB setting. i managed to boot straight in, but graphics acceleration, splash screen is lost. my default screen resolution which is 1024X600 changes to 1024X768 and i cant change it back. tried fresh installation for 5 times but problem still persist. can anyone help me please?
