Ubuntu Screen setup Problem

Just installed Ubuntu 8.04, I can't get my screen to work properly, I know there's nothing wrong with the screen, tried it on another computer.

Appreciate your help.

    You may have to load the video drivers manually. Did the screen go blank after the install? Do you have another monitor to try on this machine to eliminate the possibilty of the video card being bad?

    What kind of video card are you using? Is Ubuntu installed or are you using a live CD? Is it booting and going black?

You have to format your hard drive using a third party disc to erase everything on your hard drive

Restart your computer during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS then using the arrow keys scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

The setup file is an .exe file which doesnot run in ubuntu 10.04 lts edition. So would u help me to install the modem in ubuntu.


Assuming the modem is connected, click on System - Administration - Additional Drivers
Wait while ubuntu searches, then click on and activate any drivers listed.

If that doesn't resolve, try connecting to a router/modem - Enable networking (top left hand corner of screen) then click on System - Admin - Update manager. See if an update can resolve the issue.

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 today. I would like to know how I can configure wireless network.


Welcome to Ubuntu :), first of all make sure you can see wireless networks so that your wireless driver is functioning properly, find the wireless icon in the system tray in the upper right corner of your screen, right click and select edit connections, select wireless connections, here you can configure your wireless networks..

HP Pavilion w. Vista, am trying to open Ubuntu for first time since install, but it wants a user name and password. Have tried all the combos from Windows, keep getting wrong password or name message. Also...


First of all, try this:
Username: root
Password: root

Second of all, you only specified that you had Vista. If you manually installed Ubuntu, then you must've specified a Username and Password during the setup.

If none work, then go ahead and format the Ubuntu partition, then re-install Ubuntu. This time, try to remember the Username and Password.

USB mouse won't work under XP in a dual boot Ubuntu GRUB 1.5


It has the latest mouse driver (logitech setpoint 4.0). Before installing Ubuntu the setup worked w/ SUSE/XP using GRUB dual boot. After installing Ubuntu XP does not see the usb mouse. Even Logitech setpoint does not have the mouse setup/configuration option. It appears that at boot it does not recognize the mouse or disables it. The BIOS has the usb keyboard and mouse enabled. Currently, I have two mices one for xp and either mouse will work under Ubuntu.
