I had a crash recently while using my laptop with Ubuntu 18.04 (my screen turned black and then I couldn’t get back into my OS).
So I decided to start fresh on a different hard drive with the latest Ubuntu 20.04.
Unfortunately, I can’t access my OS GUI while using the nvidia driver. I am stuck on a black screen and if press Alt + F2 to enter CLI and type
startx I get an error message saying: “No screens found”.
I’ve spent hours on forum posts and I re-installed the OS 5 times (even tried with Debian but without success).
So I re-installed again and this time I’ve only done:
- Installing Ubuntu (without third party)
- sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
Here is some more informations:
