I've read about a hundred posts on this problem and I've done everything imaginable to fix it. I'm frustrated to say the least. I can run the live cd fine with no problems at all but when I do a hard drive the problem is there. I load up fine and log in as root but when I type startx and hit enter I just get blank screen. The solution I'm useing right now is to boot in recovery mode and then select resume normal boot and it lets me in just fine. I have a dell with intel hd graphics and an i3. If you need more info just let me know. I'm kind of a noob at all this so just bare with me. Any help would be appreciated.
