no screens found error

May 3rd, 2011 1 comment

Today I had a problem with my recently upgraded ubuntu 11.04. At the initialization process it couldn’t load the X server, and when I run startx in a console, it give me as error no screens found.

The solution is editing a line in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf . At Section “Device” edit BusID¬†field with the address of your graphics card, in my case “PCI:1:0:0”. You can find your address using lspci Then reboot.

It should be solved. Special Thanks to freq101. Complete tutorial:
