Ubuntu: Ubuntu16.04 boot to black screen hp pavilion [duplicate]



Question:

This question already has an answer here:

After installing Ubuntu on my HP pavilion DV6 through CD version 16.04 and erasing Windows, computer turns to black screen everytime I boot. I have done some research and the fn+F3 doesn't seem to work (increasing brightness) my computer is quite old and the F10 key for example doesn't work... The only option I have now is to Press escape while boot Press E to change parameters Erase "quiet splash" either for Nothing or for "acpi_backlight=vendor" .

"nomodeset" also allows me to start the computer and use it normally. What I would like now is to save these changes so I could start the computer normally with no manipulation.

The problem is I can't seem to find a way to save these changes and make them default. Thank you for your time and attention !

Solution:1

The nomodeset can be set as a default, by editing the grub configuration files:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Find the line starting with GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT, and add nomodeset to the list of parameters. Then press ctrl+o to save the file, and ctrl+x to exit.

Follow this with sudo update-grub
