For me the solution after lots of searching was to disable UEFI in the BIOS. My machine runs only Linux so disabling UEFI was not a big deal. I was having problems with VirtualBox and NVIDIA and could not get either to work with Ubuntu 16. I was seaching for "ubuntu 16 UEFI Virtual Box Fail kernel build" and came across a link regarding Virtualbox that ...

Try disabling/enabling the hardware acceleration in Settings /Advanced Settings in Chrome. See if it's happening in Firefox. You could also try this: http://itsfoss.com/netflix-ubuntu-1404-desktop-app/

This issue did appear to be related to the timing of the initialization of the monitors. Switching the MST splitter to the first port resulted in the system successfully processing the monitors.xml file every time. It has been restarted many times now without issue.

Not sure what happened, but the problem seems to be solved. I've upgraded RAM memory from 4gb to 16gb, bought a new 6gb/s hard disk and reinstalled wily werewolf on new disk. Now it already turn on with normal speed.

I had a similar issue, and this worked for me: sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel xserver-xorg-core sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg Followed by a reboot. Was having many irritating graphics crashes before, none since. It oddly didn't make Ubuntu recognise the device, but at least I'm not getting crashes now. Adapted from ...

I solved it in a very simple way. I deleted the xorg.conf... First I tried moving to a textual tty, switch to intel and run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". After logging out and then logging in again I noticed that the resolution was messed up (only one, nearly 640x480) but at least it was not failing to log in. So I tried to remove xorg.conf and now it works!

I think I have found the solution. I have had terrible trouble with installing 16.04 on my main machine. Nvidia drivers crash and you can't log in and you have to resort to sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*. Chrome was crashing. I have had no trouble with my secondary machine which has a traditional bios. It is only my main machine with UEFI firmware. The most ...

Ubuntu 16.04 of course supports hybrid graphics solutions, especially notebooks that have intel graphics and NVIDIA graphics with Optimus support. Do NOT install bumblebee, it is not under development anymore, the latest version is from April 2013. The solution to switch between the two graphics today is nvidia-prime, which is available in the official ...

I have the solution: How to fix plymouth (splash screen) in all Ubuntu releases! I used this advice and after a small correction it works. I wrote my knowledge to the original answer.

16.04 is new and all packages are not ready to use in all servers. The problem is not about nvidia drivers or anything about broken pacages. Using Main Server to download packages solve my problem. System Settings Software & Updates Select "Main Server" from "Download from" section

You may have installed a bugged driver. I know on some GPU models, there are 3 to four different proprietary drivers to install. Which results in the black screen of Death. Similar to the black screen of death on Windows where a buggy windows update or an infection "deletes" access to the desktop. From Nixie Pixel on YouTube, she was able to do a work ...

On my system (mobo GA-990FXA-UD5 R5 I needed to add "iommu=soft" to the grub config file under GRUB_CMDLINE= there is a thread floating around somewhere about it, but this should resolve the issue with USB and networking ports working oddly. For the life of me I cannot find the source post of this :/ Also, if you have issues booting a live USB, you can ...

So uhh... This is a little embarrassing... I uhh my umm. Okay. I'll say it. My SLI cord came undone. I have got it working now. Although I also had to change my xorg file from using DPF-0 screen to DVI-I-0. Yep.

You have a problem with the package system, not with the driver itself. It is quite a common problem. One of the solutions is: sudo apt-get clean sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg --configure -a Another possible solution is to use synaptic package manager to fix the broken packages (it will prompt you to do that automatically) and then you'll be able to ...

After two weeks of fiddling around and getting nowhere, I finally got the Nvidia card working with the NVidia drivers. The issue is that I originally tried to install the Nvidia drivers with the Ubuntu software installer (don't do this) which was originally happily using the Intel drivers. This didn't work, and several reboots later it has removed the Intel ...

Run sudo sh amd-driver-installer-x86.x86_64.run --uninstall in the directory where the driver installer was downloaded. It will remove the driver and your resolution will be back to normal.

Same problem. I held the shift key down during boot and got to a menu where I chose "advanced options," then selected "upstart." At least I can do my office work now. Unknown how to make systemd, the new type of booting up, function.

I found the solution. I'm not sure what exactly was the problem, but this issue seems to have disappeared on a fresh install of 16.04. Perhaps they updated the dependencies properly in it? I'm not sure. But I can personally confirm that this is no longer an issue in 16.04. I used to have the EXACT same issue in 14.04. But now with 16.04 it is no longer ...

Those graphics cards will use the Radeon driver.

I also installed Ubuntu 16.04, clean install on a new hd and everything worked fine until I switched to NVIDIA driver. After rebooting I couldn't get past the login screen.

I upgraded from Ubuntu GNOME 15.10 to 16.04 and was faced with a black screen. Using systemctl status and digging through logs, I found that the proprietary NVidia drivers were broken. Purging nvidia-* and reinstalling gdm got me to low-graphics mode, but reinstalling the NVidia drivers brought back the black screen. As it turns out, Secure Boot had been ...

As of right now, the beta drivers have only been tested on ubuntu 14.04 and kernel version 4.2. If you have a Sea Island card, you will need to compile your own kernel with ck enabled. If you're comfortable with the terminal, this is actually pretty easy. You can check the gentoo forums as this is the norm for them. As of right now, unless you are a ...

This probably won't fix it, as I've seen these rabbit holes you staring at go pretty deep before, but I would start with doing available updates on your system. I can see in the screenshot you left that update manager has some for you to do. Frequently the problem with these rabbit holes that go this deep aren't going to be easy to fix with updating one deb ...

As first enter a TTY, this you achieve by pressing ctrl+alt+f1. There you can login whit providing your username and password. Then set the contrast back with the same command you have used to set it to zero. xcalib -co 50 -a Now you can logout of your TTY session by entering exit. Afterwards you can come back to your GUI by pressing ctrl+alt+f7.

Note - This message only aims at proprietary nvidia drivers users. I'm not sure if your laptops has one, but it may help for other people that were in the same situation. : I just encountered a similar issue after updating my Kubuntu 16.04 setup (it already worked fine with it). Messing around KDE packages didn't help. However I noticed that Plasma was ...

First remove all currently installed NVIDIA software. Select the Ubuntu menu entry and press the E key. Add nouveau.modeset=0 at the end of the linux line.

I have multiple monitors configured. In Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus), using Displays (unity-control-center), only Resolutions 1024x768 and 800x600 were available in the pulldown menu for my second display which is DVI output (DVI-0 Radeon driver). So I configured a modified version of the lightdmxrandr.sh based on the solution described above. My verion of ...

For The display is blank & The display flickers I faced the same issue but now every thing works fine. The main issue was with gdm, not the NVIDIA driver.

When i installed my Nvidia driver i had to turn off secure boot from my UEFI settings. Ubuntu would login after i did that.

In my opinion it looks more like a broken screen panel than a terminal. Did you try to change TTY? Press Alt + F1 (or F2, F3, ...) to switch your TTY. Does the black screen persist? If available, you can try to plug in an external monitor to test if something changes. I hope this helps ;)

Thanks to the collective effort of the community, I have managed to get it working. First, get to a Terminal (by pressing ctrl-alt-f1 if you can't log in, or through recovery mode).

Stay away from AMD for now. Something to keep in mind that may disuade you from using an AMD/ATI GPU with Ubuntu: As of Ubuntu 16.04 (the latest release as of this writing), the AMD Catalyst driver (fglrx) is no longer supported or available. To be clear, the fglrx driver is now deprecated in 16.04 and you are forced to use an alternative open source ...

I also have an issue with 16.04 and Nvidia 361.42 driver. You can use prime-select intel or Nouveau driver as temporary workaround. I have had endless issues with the official Nvidia Ubuntu drivers over the years, it's very hit and miss. I thought the introduction of Steam OS and the growing number of Linux users/gamers might encourage them to better support ...

All the Nvidia drivers, except for nvidia-331-updates, are described as "open source". However, nvidia-331-updates is described as "proprietary".

I see what you're saying & have added the same PPA, don't ...

Each of the issues described (and maybe even more) can be fixed by following the steps below. First make sure you can enter a TTY Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 If this brings you to a black screen with a login prompt, continue on. Otherwise, you will likely have to boot with a special kernel flag. Now for the fix Log into your account in the TTY. Run sudo ...

Have a look at the Release Notes. It tells exactly what is going to happen, and IMHO, it is a step in the right direction, not a problem. The fglrx driver is now deprecated in 16.04, and we recommend its open source alternatives (radeon and amdgpu). AMD put a lot of work into the drivers, and we backported kernel code from Linux 4.5 to provide a better ...

fglrx is not available in 16.04. According to the linked article, "depending on your exact graphics hardware, Ubuntu 16.04 will use the open-source AMDGPU or the open-source Radeon driver in place of flgrx."

I have the same problem. Running Ubuntu 16.04. Intel HD4600 and Nvidia 765M. Tried all the suggestions above. It worked when installing using terminal, but if I use multiple monitors it bugs out and I end up in a boot loop. I've read someone suggesting that the beta driver 364xx works.
