Before i start id like to say im a total newb to linux.. Used windows for years but I'm not tech minded, my old pc run slow so i bought an ipad! Then was given a linux pc but a good friend about 4-5 years after buying an ipad.
A friend of mine the other day gave me a pc he had lying around unused but dusty and had linux installed. i got it home and it worked perfect but no sound, messages him and i was told by a him to locate the "analog output" click that in settings and make sound run through it, all i could find was dummy output ( i think its called ), i researched it and found its because it was bugged so to sort it out i needed to uninstall and reinstall so i followed some guys code and did that.. It said the install was successful in the control panel type thing. but on restart i get a blank screen.. Like my monitor isn't working! " i used this method http://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1304-quick-tip/
no sure if links are allowed but i used this guys method to try and get my sound back and ended up with a blank screen after restart.
I get to the grub menu ( think its called )
I have found many post relating to blank screen but non are like the picture i posted or talk really in death tech talk which i don't understand.. I think in the grub menu i need to change something but I'm confused
I believe its when you reinstall stuff that it makes the monitor not work?? Could this be the case?? If so can you help??
Ps sorry if i posted in wrong section i am a total newb so please forgive me
And no in death tech talk, try keep it simple
Ps if you want me to explain things further please say. I'm not computer literate sorry but i will do my best.
