Default Re: Ubuntu Gutsy amd64 with 8500GT = black screen

That was it!

Using the DVI cable, the monitor was not being identified (came up as "Generic Monitor" when configuring X). I changed the cable from DVI to VGA, and the monitor is correctly identified and thus the NVIDIA driver runs correctly.

Thanks netllama!

Cheers,
