Monitor turns off after boot and before login screen due to Nvidia driver - Ubuntu
My monitor seems to be having a problem in that after it boots up with the Ubuntu splash screen and just before it shows the graphical login it displays:
This could be down to two things:
- Before I last restarted my computer I received quite a few system updates
- I "uninstalled" (i.e. used gparted to simply delete) my Kubuntu partition - causing problems with my GRUB etc, but that's another story...
In an attempt to get my GRUB back i installed Ubuntu again on the partition where Kubuntu used to be, and now I can boot both successfully.
On the fresh Ubuntu install the NVidia drivers work fine - with all the updates installed. I tried copypasting the fresh Ubuntu's xorg.conf into the original Ubuntu's since all the hardware is identical but this just caused the problem again.
OS: Ubuntu 8.04 (both)
Graphics card: NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]
Installed Driver: "NVidia binary X.Org driver ('new' driver)" (This is disabled on original Ubuntu install)
Any help is greatly appreciated
