I recently installed Suse 9.0 over FTP. Everything went smoothly, and installed correctly. However, upon rebooting, after the screen where everything loads, the screen goes completely black. No cursor, no movement, nothing. I tried ctrl+alt+F1 and it did nothing. Also tried the other commands.
I read in another post about resetting the video card drives, but I do not know how to do that. I have an onboard nvidia nforce card, and I believe that is the problem. I can't get the current nvidia drivers because suse is the only OS on the system. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Have been working on it for a week straight!
I am using LILO as a bootloader. The problem is, however, that installing the drivers didn't seem to help at all. Still a black screen where no ctrl+alt+f1 or f2 or whatever works. Is there any other way of getting around this?
The problem is there a two different drivers from nvidia. One is an overall driver, the other specifically for nforce cards, which I have. I did the nforce, but it did not work. Any suggestions?
Also, in a post similair to mine, a person seemed to resolve this issue by resetting their drivers. How do I go about doing this in the command prompt?
