Freeze on boot 12.04 with nvidia

Asked by Julian Ribe Kristiansen on 2012-08-27

Trying to boot my freshly installed ubuntu 12.04, i get this weird purple/black static screen.

Can open in rescue mode, but don't know what to do.

Have tried running with the "no splash" and "nomodeset" commands, but no luck.

Help, please.

What is the make and model of the system?
Is it a laptop or desktop?
Are you connecting to a screen via HDMI cable?

Can you please give basic details like this.

I'm so sorry i suck at asking questions, i managed to solve it going into low graphics mode and installing nvidia-current.
