comment ubuntu install black screen - nomodeset not working
Thank you for your answer but the scope of my problems is even larger. You see I can't even get ubuntu live CD started. So the advice to log as far into ubuntu as I can is useless for me... The computer is completely new so I have only win 8 installed. I do the following: 1. boot from installation media 2. select try ubuntu without installing or install ubuntu 3. edit the option by pressing e and change it to nosplash noquiet nomodeset 4. pressing f10 5. and the screen goes immediately black a the computer halts and does absolutely nothing. Please help! I hate windows and win 8 even more! Thx
