This is a small not about Ubuntu installation problem when I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop with NVidia graphic board.
The problem is that display does not show anything after Ubuntu installation from USB disk. Since I heard Ubuntu booting sound, which sounds like tango, I though installation itself succeeded and the problem is related to graphics driver. After web searching, I solved the problem as follows:
- Alt + Ctrl + F1 to switch to console mode.
- sudo apt-get install build-essential (I’m not sure whether this command is necessary or not.)
- sudo apt-get remove –purge nvidia* to remove all nvidia related components
- sudo apt-get install nvidia-319-updates-dev to install appropriate driver for graphic card
- sudo reboot
Then, login window appears as usual 🙂
