Black Screen on Ubuntu 10.04
I've searched every where, and found no solution to my problem.

When I Install the restricted drivers, even when I download the drivers available on the Nvidia Web Site, after rebooting my laptop, it just shows a black screen, can't log in, or send commands to linux, so I have to reinstall again

Nvidia Geforce 9300m GS
Laptop Sony Vaio VGN-Z520N

Hi t_a_x_2,

Are you able to log into the laptop remotely from another computer? If so, you should be able to generate an nvidia-bug-report.log file so that we can have a better idea of what is happening.

Based on your problem description, though, I suspect that you are experiencing a problem which is caused by an unimplemented ACPI method in the driver which is required for display detection to succeed on many laptops, particularly recent Sony VAIO systems. The next driver release (current release is 256.35) should have this implementation in place, so if you can wait until then, please try the next released driver to see if it resolves your problem.
