Re: No display after boot, following recent updates

Just to update this, months later, I never could get the display working again. As there was seemingly no solution, I gave up on Linux Mint and installed a different OS, which works. I used Mint for several years and thought it was very good, but obviously the sudden and apparently irreversible loss...

Re: No display after boot, following recent updates

Unfortunately, the only system restore point that seems to have been created was after the upgrades which broke the display.

Sure, I could install 19.2 and see if that fixes it but I would far rather understand what has caused this problem, and fix it, and be able to...
