I just performed a clean installation on my Computer, and it stuck on the loading screen at first startup. However, the terminal still works. I have tried update the graphic drivers (nvidia gtx 760), but it did not work. What should I do?

  • Hello. Try logging into your Terminal and using startx and sudo lightdm restart. If that doesn't work, use sudo apt-get install gdm and say <Yes> when it asks you to. (I am recommending installing gdm because when I ran Saucy, LightDM often failed on me and I've found gdm to be MUCH more stable)

    Try running this command in the terminal: "grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log" and post the output here. It will display any error information in the log file of the X server. Jan 9 '14 at 21:39
  • I have tried all above, but none of them work. Tried to update the lethal, sort and drivers. The screen crashes and blinks after splash screen.

I am assuming that you trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS base on the tag. I had a similar issue. Try executing the following.

Sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-precise

I also have documented few more tips here.

  • Still did not work, the command line is working fine but the GUI crashed

  • @UbuntuNew: Also look at this post askubuntu.com/questions/162075/… (Author Luis Alvarado), there is some references to Nvidia graphic drivers. – Mahendra Gunawardena Jan 10 '14 at 15:35

  • What I have tried is to update whatever the apt-get carries, perform a clean installation of the nvidia drive, all did not work. Well, it works in someway. When I checked the additional drivers, it appears the nvidia driver 319 was activated but not working that time. it seems to be a hardware issue..... I may try to instal a 13.10, and see what happens
