[ubuntu] No Video / Stuck at Boot / Tried first thread / No Luck

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have an HP Pavilion DV6700. Worked fine on 11.10, but after upgrading to 12.04 the graphics won't work. I went back and did a clean install from Live DVD to 12.04, still no luck. I find it odd though that the DVD works fine on the system, but once loading natively from internal drive I get Unity crashes and such. I've tried the steps on the first thread in this forum, I got the Grub menu, edited the line to get a verbose boot, and the kernel booted...tried to boot into recovery mode, but it failed. I'm getting frustrated, but understand new versions will have problems. Am runn (Hardware)
