It sounds like the LCD panel OR the video card are bad, or it could just be a bad driver. Head to the manufacturer's website, download, install and reboot. Below are some thing to check: Try connecting to an external monitor, if the line appears on the external monitor, the issue is a bad video card. If the issue does NOT appear on the external monitor, ...
I ran into the same problem today, with exactly the same symptoms. It turned out to be an nvidia version conflict. I managed to solve it by following these instructions: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS - Black Screen at boot After changing Nvidia Driver First of all, check for an nvidia error message: grep NVRM /var/log/kern.log I saw this: API mismatch: the client ...
I suggest to change refresh rate (mainly decrease it) which seems to be the real problem. For instance check this question to see how to change the refresh rate Try different refresh rate until you got the optimal vision. And for your screen I think it's enough a 1366x768 resolution with a refresh rate of 60 xrandr -s 1360x768 -r 60
If enable dual head mode (two X screens), the second monitor went white after login with unity or unity-2d. After tracking the gnome-session, it is caused by running "nautilus -n" for this configuration. And if kill the nautilus process, the desktop showed up normally on second screen. It is a Bug. Try using Ubuntu 13.10.

After loading the GRUB menu by holding shift when booting up and pressing 'e' on the main Ubuntu entry, I discovered a sequence of references to "msdos". The solution therefore is to return the GRUB entry to it's default state. To conclude, this issue appears to be caused by dual ...
You have to drag the vm windows corners, or use a display manager that's installed on the os. For example in Ubuntu it's under "system settings/displays", in KDE you may need to install randr (sudo apt-get install kde-workspace-randr), and then it's under system settings/displays. When you reboot the screen will start small, but upon login it will return to ...
Actually, there is another minimal official ISO, which is not as well-known as the „normal“ one. You can download it right here The major difference between this ISO and the other is that this one offers a command line installation, which should solve your problem. During the installation make sure that you install the Ubuntu Desktop. I hope this helps.
if you simply want to change resolution manually go to system settings/displays and apply desired one. if you got messed up with nvidia configuration do the following: press Ctrl + Alt + F1 and run: sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm stop sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm start if you need to configure new installation of nvidia run in ...
