Ubuntu 12.04- Low-Res Boot Screen after installing drivers

Asked by Emerson Hsieh

People who used Ubuntu 10.04 will know what I mean.

Basically after I installed Ubuntu 12.04 I installed the ATI Drivers. I installed the un-post-release-update one because I cannot instale the post-release-update one.

Then the low-res and ugly boot screen from Ubuntu 10.04 reappears!

Next I went on Google and searched for a whole lot of solutions. All of them didn't work because the solutions were designed for 10.04.

I thought this bug was fixed in Ubuntu 10.10.

Is the system desktop resolution and performance ok?

Yes, but sometimes shutting down takes forever. The low-res boot (shut down) screen shows, then nothing happens (the dots stopped moving). And I cannot install the post-release-update ATI Drivers. I reinstalled Ubuntu and the same thing happens.

This is usaly GRUB related. If you upgraded you should try a fresh install to replace GRUB. Alternatly if you KWYD try configuring the resolution of GRUB you can get a GUI program from the software center.

I tried that (used grub customize) and the boot screen disappears. Then I did a clean install and installed the same driver. Same thing. And what does KWYD mean??

Can you help with this problem?
