I just made a kernel update in my Ubuntu 14.04 from kernel version 3.13.0-101-generic to 3.13.0-103-generic. The boot logo of Ubuntu is shown and then only black screen is displayed. Any help?
I got the solution... First I noticed that Ubuntu was loading fine in recovery mode and it was giving black screen in normal boot mode.
So i edited grub file with command
gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
changed it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"
I saved it and run the command
And restarted, it works fine.
Ubuntu boots as expected but there's still a problem. I had saved some script than run on startup and set my screen brightness to some lower value, now I lost it. For now, I am ok with the solution I got.
