try this


Try to boot to the system to runlevel 3. Instead of booting to runlevel 5 (graphical).

How to boot to runlevel 3.

During booting system by default it will show you grub boot screen for 5 seconds. At that time press Esc key. Grub boot menu will be shown. Presss "e" key in the keyboard to start the edit mode. Move to the end of the line starting with the word kernel and number "3". Then press "Enter".Then press "b" to boot the os in runlevel 3. If system boots to runlevel 3.

If it works for you. Login as root. and follow the steps to setup your xserver display settings.


the above command will provide a text based setup screen. You can setup your display setting here. After setting display run the following command.


Try the steps and update the status.

with best regards,
