What worked for me was using the
nomodeset option in the grub bootloader. There are two methods to set
- While booting press and hold shift in order to see the grub menu
- Choose the entry you want to change (in a normal installation the first entry) and press e to edit it
- Look for
quiet splash and add
nomodeset before it
- Finally press F10 to boot.
If this worked for you, you can use the permanent way for all bootups.
/etc/default/grub (for example:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub)
- change the line
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset quiet splash"
- Finally update the grub config:
The next time rebooting, you don't have to specify the boot option.
I run Ubuntu 16.04 LTS with 4.4 kernel on Lenovo i310 laptop.
