I just downloaded and installed Ubuntu 16.04.3 for my Sony Vaio Z Series laptop.
After the installation finished, a message asked me to restart. When I clicked on it, it just froze, so I shut down the laptop directly using the shutdown key.
Once I rebooted the laptop, I can log in a as guest without any problem (although it freezes when changing language or logout).
But I can't open my user account; I enter the password, click log in, then it freezes, although I still can move the cursor.
apt-get install unity and
dpkg-reconfigure, I've also tried
apt-get remove --purge nvidia*.
I have the same problem with Ubuntu 17.04. I installed 16.04 and 17.04 twice, but still can't fix this issue.
I've also tried
apt-get dist-upgrade, but it didn't help.
After setting the kernel boot parameters to
quiet splash nomodeset, I can log in, but the problem is that with
nomodeset the resolution is annoying.
How can I fix this problem?
