Ubuntu – 12.04 boots to black screen ATI Radeon HD 3200


After upgrading from Oneiric to Ubuntu Precise booting ends up in a black screen with no whatsoever reaction. There is a short flicker showing the login screen before turning black, during which I can get to a login terminal via ctr+alt+f1. Already tried removing xorg.conf, uninstalling compiz, setting grub options to nomodeset or raden.modeset=0 , re-installing Xorg . Nothing would help.

Please help!

What drivers are you using? I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 12.04 with the HD3200, have tried both open source drivers and ATI's drivers with no problems.

What drivers were you using before the upgrade? Have you tried a different display manager yet? Does Ctrl-Alt-F[number] (where [number] is 1 to 6) bring up a terminal? If the terminal appears, I'd runsudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade if you haven't already.
