I tried to install xUbuntu 16.04 on my computer. The computer has two graphic card, one is a integrated graphic card called ASPEED Graphics Family [1a03:2000](rev 30), the other is GeForce GTX 1070. I want to use the integrated card to display, and use the GeForce GTX 1070 to do some computing with CUDA. And I use a monitor with VGA, didn't plug into the GTX 1070.
When installing the system xUbuntu 16.04, at first I was stuck in a black screen after I chose the "Install" in grub. I looked up some websites and found some solutions. When choosing "Install", press
E to edit the command, and add
nomodeset option after
quiet splash, then I can enter the GUI to install system.
However, the installed system has a high resolution 1280 * 1024, but it flickers and its FPS is very low. Although the fresh rate it displays in the settings is 60 Hz, but in actual it's only 1 or 2 Hz.
By the way, another computer with same hardware can directly install system, and didn't ran into black screen. I really don't know why.
It might be the
nomodeset option has lead to the low performance of my computer's display. But how to fix that?
