Hear the Drums but no screen to accompany help

Asked by Jhackster on 2007-07-04

I have tried to install ubuntu on my system. I'm planning on a dual boot and I just bought a new hard drive today to do it. My problem is I've tried to install it on normal and safe graphics mode and I hear the drums but my screen is completely black. My setup is
intel 965 board with D945 cpu
2 HDD 1st windows 250gig 2nd hopefully ubuntu 320 gig
2 gig ram
ati x1600xt graphics card
audigy 2 zs sound card
2 tv tuner cards and I'm guessing that is all that is needed.
Please help me figure this out.
Thanks Jared

Hello, I had the same problems with my ATI card and came across this wiki page which solved the problem for me: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/EdgyKnownIssues/59618

I hope this helps you out and good luck.

thanks I tried that but still no dice is there a way I can use the install with driver update cd option? to help?

I have been looking for a fix to this problem and I found this post on the forums: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=414194 it covers installing Ubuntu on computers with ATI X**** cards.

I hope this solves your problem and please feel free to ask any more questions.

Can you help with this problem?
