/dev/sdb1 : clean, 640729/122388848 files blocked, and keyboard is not active, keyboard doesn't work.

Ubuntu 16.04

I cannot open the computer. /dev/sdb1 : clean message stays there. Ctrl+Alt+F1 or Ctrl+Alt+F7 is not working because keyboard is not working.

So how can I fix ?

I tried to fix via grub with root prompt:

$ sudo apt update then receiving error : Could not resolve 'developer.download.nvidia.com' Could not resolve 'tr.archive.ubuntu.com'

$ sudo apt upgrade Could not resolve 'tr.archive.ubuntu.com'

(I use dual boot : Windows and Ubuntu.)

It was running, but it started not to run after 04.10.2018 gpu Windows driver updates. I cannot open ubuntu boot. Black screen frozen with "/dev/sdb1 : clean".

Is it temporary issue because of gpu driver updates or should I fix something ?

  • Are you sure the keyboard is functional? Does the same problem occur if you boot from a LiveUSB? – user535733 Oct 7 '18 at 18:36
  • It is a dual boot. I installed windows 10. I installed ubuntu to ssd. Before start, there are options : Ubuntu Windows etc. Then keyboard is working in this screen. But when I choose ubuntu, and enter, Then : /dev/sdb1 message stays on screen and keyboard is not working. And not start. – papatya2 Oct 7 '18 at 18:54
  • It was working first. But after driver updates, it is not running anymore. – papatya2 Oct 8 '18 at 9:47

I removed nvidia driver. And installed again. It is running now. Solved.

But I need to disables automatic NVIDIA driver updates/cuda updates/ubuntu updates updates,etc.

How can I do it ?

I use Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows as dual boot. Same NVIDIA GPU. So I think I need to disable all to make stable system.
