I've installed Ubuntu 13.04 on my laptop HP 6720s with video card Intel 965 chipset Intel gma x3100. After the boot the classic purple screen appear and before the login page the screen become black and the pc remain freezed.
For all last versions of Ubuntu the following commands repaired the situation:
Recovery mode with network:
apt-get remove --purge nvidia* rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf apt-get update apt-get
Recovery mode again:
apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-xconfig reboot
But for the 13.04 version it doesn't work.
Thank you in advance!
Hit Ctrl + Alt + F1 to reach the first virtual console. Log in there, then follow the instructions.
To get all the relevant stuff, including the kernel sources and kernel headers run next command
If the package
linux-headersis not available, try running the command by specifying the exact version of the headers with:
Next, install the current Nvidia driver:
Once the installation completes successfully, check if the Nvidia driver is loaded:
If it's not, you will need to manually insert into memory. First, make sure all kernel module dependencies are satisfied and resolved:
Then, load the driver:
This should succeed and the
lsmodcommand should show it's loaded, but the usage count will probably be 0, because nothing will be using it yet. You will need to restart the graphics environment to actually benefit from the driver:
This will restart the graphics environment, you will see the Nvidia splash, and you will load into a desktop that has the Nvidia driver running, and all that. Your problem is now resolved.
