| Hey Bob,
| Do you get any output on your screen during boot up? If not,
| sometimes there is a button on the laptop (usually accessed with a
| function key) for turning off the LCD in lieu of an external display.
| Can you see your system boot; and then goes blank when X starts?
| Display works fine up until I complete log in, then it goes black. I
| was messing around with Graphics/Screen GUI and turned off the display.
what about <control> <alt> <f1> can you login to tty1? then run sudo
