so im new to linux of any kind, i have just made the leap and switched from windows to ubuntu. It took me a while as i wanted a system that was clean and had tons of support for issues like this, i chose the Gnome Ubuntu.
Anyway when i was first trying to install ubuntu, i would get past bios, it would load the first ubuntu screen asking for a live "try it" session or to install. From here no matter the option i chose there was little to no display output. all i would get would be a black screen with a cursor.
So i removed my GTX 780 from my system and ran my HDMI cable to my monitor via the motherboard onboard intel graphics. This works perfectly. Now i am assuming this is a driver issue, and so i went hunting once i has installed ubuntu for nvidia graphics drivers for linux based systems and installed the latest version that directly supported the Nvidia GTX 780 cards. This made it worse. I would boot to find a screen flashing between a light grey with a box and a black 'no display input' screen. I had to re install ubuntu using my usb and no graphics card installed all over again...
I am now back to square one with no graphics card installed running off my Intel' HD on board graphics. The drivers failed to work, maybe i did something wrong? Any advice to fix this?
