I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.04, and the splash screen does not appear anymore. Instead I have a black screen even if the system boots correctly.
Does any body knows how to fix this.

I had the same problem then I found the solution at http://byobu.info/wiki/Changing_Plymouth_Resolution_in_Ubuntu. It works for my Ubuntu 12.04.
I had the same problem.
I fixed it by repairing packets in the recovery mode. The recovery mode of the new kernel (3.2) did not work, so I had to take the old kernel (3.0).
It turned out to be the solution for my problem. I hope this helps, but maybe you have other problems.
sudo aptitude upgrade(or the same with
apt-get) helped to get rid of some other error messages.
In normal situation,option of splash screen enabling is placed within boot parameters of your operating system..it means you can interrupt boot process and manually enter params or change your boot params in boot configuration file. if you are using grub/burg run this command to edit:
sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
sudo gedit /boot/grub/burg.cfg
and add splash to rest of line begins with linux /boot/vmlinuz ..blah blah
and finally it looks like:
linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-23-lowlatency root=UUID=d0433a6a-d031-4a59-bbb4-d77557235afa ro quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor $vt_handoff
as you see theres splash within that line. some other reason is your graphic mode cant be enable during boot process and its not much important at all
I got an splashscreen after a Ubuntu server 12.04 installation, and it seems nothing happens, but I think the newest kernels have moved the video mode setting into the kernel.
How I fixed it:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
If these won't help, you can find help in the Ubuntu wikis
