Problem

Sometimes you see a white/black screen when u boot your operating system

Solution

When u see this screen, press “C” on your keyboard to edit grub config:

grub-bios-videomode_01

Edit grub config in order to add nomodeset parameter:

grub-bios-videomode_02

What is nomodeset grub parameter????

nomodeset

The newest kernels have moved the video mode setting into the kernel. So all the programming of the hardware specific clock rates and registers on the video card happen in the kernel rather than in the X driver when the X server starts.. This makes it possible to have high resolution nice looking splash (boot) screens and flicker free transitions from boot splash to login screen. Unfortunately, on some cards this doesnt work properly and you end up with a black screen. Adding the nomodeset parameter instructs the kernel to not load video drivers and use BIOS modes instead until X is loaded.
