I can't boot

Postby Aleph_sev » Fri Apr 06, 2012 4:54 am

Hi friends,

I installed LMDE 64bits 3 days ago and I had two important problems... :(

1- I missed the minimize/maximize buttons (Solved)

2- Now I can't boot. LMDE stop booting and ask for login (user and password) in a black screen, I do but nothing happens, only a black screen similar to a root terminal....

My system:

Lenovo T61 Thinkpad
4Gb Ram
2,2 Ghz
Nvidia Card

I was looking in the forum for this problem before, but I could not find a solution, sorry.

Black screen issue is usually caused by the graphics card driver. Try booting with "nomodeset" boot parameter added.
