Boot hang, graphics issue

Asked by Ted Antonescu on 2019-01-30

Hello,
I have a mid-2007 imac running Ubuntu 18.04... Ubuntu is not giving me any brightness control... also, frame rate is pretty low on videos, super choppy. I tried installing the ATI radeon driver & then it wouldn't finish booting, I had to uninstall the driver for it to finish booting.

I believe I need to replace the video card, please let me know if you see any other avenues I should be looking into.

Thanks!
Ted

billel dallas (kingbily96) said : #2

short of doing battle installing Nvidia drivers directly from their download page you can install Nvidia from Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers ... and reboot ... as a veteran of many such black screens while mucking about with Nvidia I know your pain ... this new method may give you the driver version you need [url=https://tgw.onl/digitalocean/]DigitalOcean[/url] [url=https://tgw.onl/siteground/]SiteGround[/url] [url=https://tgw.onl/ipage/]iPage[/url]
