Re: Black screen after logging in! [solved]

I am sorry to hear that twomby. I know how frustrating it is :evil: Try command line inxi -Fxz on terminal and post the output here. Perhaps more advanced users may spot something interesting. I would also recommend you to create a new thread in parallel with this one. This may increase the chances ...

Re: Black screen after logging in! [solved]

I did an extensive search on this forum, as well as on ubuntu related forums, and could not find a concrete solution to it :( It's a shame though that the causes of this type of black screen problem are still mostly unidentified. In terms of backing up my files, I did manage it in a rather different...

However, please feel free to offer more suggestions, as they may help other fellow users that may encounter the same issue. T...

Re: Update Manager - Failed to fetch...

False alarm Karlchen!

After rebooting my laptop and retrying the updating process, no warnings appear any longer. It seems that the
sudo rm -R /var/lib/apt/lists/partial/*
command did its job perfectly well :)

I therefore mark this thread as SOLVED.

Thanks a lot Karlchen!

Best
T.

Re: How to detect hardware problems?

Thank you Austin.Texas! Glad that no hardware issues detected.

I tried everything suggested in these two in order to get rid of the black screen but nothing works so far. I am tired of this :( . I have been busy with this issue for the last three days.
