Blackscreen after grub since new computer screen from DVI -> HDMI.

Post by ndzlaq » Fri May 11, 2018 4:14 pm

Hello there,

I'm meeting a problem for this morning. I've switch my screen for a new one, the last one was on DVI and the new one is on HDMI. I found many many people with the same kind of black screen but it's not the same problem than mine.

The problem is, after the grub menu (i'm on a dualboot), when I chose linux mint mate, the login page goes black. I can't see anything, but if I write my password with the keyboard and press enter, the mint logo appears and i'm on my LM mate desktop.

With the DVI screen, there is no problem, and I never met any issue, didn't install new updates or anything.

So, I'm thinking about a driver issue that are not loaded correctly at the time of grub between video card and hdmi output.

Do you have any idea about this problem and/or how to fix it?

thanks :)
