Trouble with Ubuntu
Alright, so my monitor shuts off any time I try loading ubuntu from the Live CD. I am just trying it so I really dont want to do a clean install.....yet and wipe my Windows 7. It gets to the screen that says boot ubuntu from CD and I hit enter and my monitor shuts off like it is asleep, but wont come back on until I do a hard restart.
I have a NVIDIA Geforce 6150 LE video card and it is on-board
I vagely remember something about nvidia cards not working with newer ubuntu with out having to do something to it.....
Also not only explain how to fix it , but if possible, tell me why it is that way....I like to learn about computers
