I am using Intel HD 400 Graphics on a laptop.
When I logout, I get a black screen with no cursor or anything. I have to hard reboot the system to get into linux again.

I just upgraded from F18->F19 which apparently went fine. But now I want to login, and after this I only see "fedora" in the bottom of the screen, and a pipe as mouse cursor. Apart from this, the screen stays black, no matter which desktop I select (LXDE, XFCE, Mate, Gnome). Reboot doesn't help either.
I have installed Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit on my desktop PC, and it seems it's not working properly. I have freezing while typing, the virtual console is not available, if I try go to it my screen is freezing, also the cursor leaves a trace on the screen.
I have tried to install Nvidia graphics drivers (from offsite, and from xorg repositories), but after it my Ubuntu doesn't boot.
Whenever I try to switch to one of the text terminals (by hitting Ctrl-Alt-Fx) or try to log out (either by Ctrl-Alt-Backspace or the graphical logout menu or xfce4-session-logout), all I get is a black screen, with no cursor, nor any text whatsoever.
I've looked through logs but haven't noticed anything relevant.
I've waited for a couple of minutes for it, but nothing happened.
I'm running Fedora 18 x86_64 on a system with a Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS videocard and the proprietary driver (xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-304.64-3.fc18.x86_64).
Sometimes, at startup, the Gnome Display Manager (GDM) login screen does not appear: the screen remains black and only the mouse cursor is visible; nothing else happens and I'm forced to reboot the system.
This issue has been occurring since I
The first is on installation when I'm booting from USB stick, I'm getting black screen, only external monitor helps me to install the system.
After installation the system loads again with black screen, only when I have typed the password and pressed the Enter, the black screen is going away.
It seems some problem with default brightness on this laptop.
Can someone help me to solve
