Stuck at black timeout screen after installing drivers for GPU

My monitor. It happened when i try to install drivers for my GPU on my laptop don’t know what to do since i’m still a complete noob at this.

My laptop specs (Dell Inspiron): 4GB Ram,125GB SSD,2.4Ghz i3 and my GPU is Amd Radeon HD series and i’m running in the latest ubuntu LTS. I was planning to use my laptop and connect it to the tv and use it to watch videos.

Background black or colors after closing lid

Every time I install ubuntu on a laptop and close the lid (I think it goes to sleep then). If I open the lid again the background image is black or very weird like this:image

I am using ubuntu 19.04. I don’t know if this is relevant but this is my gpu: GeForce 940MX/PCIe/SSE2

Does someone know how I can fix this. My laptop is completely usable and I feel stupid for asking this. But if someone knows how to fix this please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,


Booting gets stuck on a black screen with some text

NOTE: There are many questions with similar title, but their answers doesn’t seem to work with my problem, so please don’t report as duplicate.

I had not used my pc for a month, the last time I used my pc, Ubuntu was working great. Today(after a month), when I turned on my pc, booting got stuck on a black screen, with some text written on it. I don’t understand what is written(too much technical terms). And at last line “intramfs” is written and I can type and enter any command into it(just like terminal). Please see the picture.


And ubuntu version is 19.04(install was smooth and I faced no problems), and is dual booted alongside windows 10(which works correctly).

Blank Black Screen Part Way Through Boot After HD Replacement

I just replaced the hard drive in my home server with a larger one, and now I get a weird not-quite-booted state. I’m running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (yeah yeah, I know I need to update).

The procedure I used was as follows:

  1. Ran an update.
  2. Rebooted to be sure it was working.
  3. Shut down.
  4. Removed old HD from the server (called “Yemaya”).
  5. Put old and new HD into an entirely different computer (called “Darth”).
  6. Booted Darth off a live USB of CloneZilla.
  7. Did a device-to-device clone of from the old HD to the new HD.
  8. Shut Darth down.
  9. Booted Darth off a live USB of GParted.
  10. Expanded the partitions on the new HD to fill the available space.
  11. Shut down Darth.
  12. Removed both HDs from Darth.
  13. Put the new HD into Yemaya.
  14. Hooked it up and turned it on.

It POSTs fine:

It starts booting:

I allowed the fsck to run; no errors were reported any time I tried it.

Aaaaand at that point it switches to a blank, black screen.

The system is there. If I let it sit for about five minutes, eventually the monitor loses signal and starts searching for one. But if I tap any key on the keyboard, then the monitor finds a signal immediately and resumes displaying an empty black screen. So it’s responding to keyboard input.

I tried SSH’ing into it, but it did not work. I can’t ping it. Whatever is going wrong must be happening before the network gets started.

I can cause it to reboot by pressing CTRL+ALT+DELETE. When I do, it shows me the Ubuntu shutdown screen:

And then it reboots. I can boot it into recovery mode:

I checked dmesg, but it had nothing interesting to say. All of my partitions mounted fine. Everything in the recovery mode console appears to work normally.

It feels like it must be a problem with the video driver, but how? I didn’t touch that! The data on the disk is a bit-for-bit copy of the original. The only thing that changed was the disk capacity.

The system is rather elderly. Hardware:

  • Mainboard: Intel D945GSEJT Johnstown
  • CPU: integrated Atom processor (N270 @ 1.333 GhZ, one core, 512 KB -cache)
  • RAM: 2 GB of the fastest the board would take
  • Original HD: Western Digital Scorpio Black WD3200BEKT 320GB 7200 RPM
  • New HD: Western Digital Scorpio Black WD7500BPKT 750GB 7200 RPM

Ubuntu goes to black screen on live USB boot

I have a custom built desktop with a Ryzen 1800x CPU and Radeon RX 580 GPU. Ubuntu has been working perfectly fine on this desktop until recently. I went to live boot 19.04 (after I had issues with my current install) but I am met with a black screen on boot. I went back and tried again with safe graphics enabled and it worked perfectly. However, after I installed it, I now have the same issue I had when I initially tried the live USB. I checked the integrity of the .iso and I have tried multiple different distros (Ubuntu, Manjaro, Clear, and Fedora). I am familiar with issues like this happening with Nvidia cards, but I have never had an issue with my AMD card on Linux. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
