[Bug 1380986] [NEW] Ubuntu 14.04 server boots to blank screen


You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I have just performed a from-scratch installation of Ubuntu Server 14.04
i386 on a FitPC2i. The installation went perfectly however on the reboot
the monitor goes in to standby. This is the following sequence on boot:

* BIOS Screen shows
* Grub menu shows and automatically selects the default option
* Ubuntu starts to load, I can see all the services starting up in the console (although it moves so quickly I can't really read much of what is going on )
* Ubuntu load seems to complete, the monitor suddenly goes in to standby

Despite the monitor going in to standby the system seems to be running
as I can do the following:

* login
* type sudo shutdown -P now (enter sudo password)
* The system shuts down

This seems to be the same issue (same hardware, same Ubuntu version) as
reported here (unsolved):
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2229592 hence raising this as a

I'm trying to think how I can get some output from the device so I can
troubleshoot this issue. I opted to install openssh during installation
and tried to connect a cable to eth0 however eth0 doesn't seem to be
requesting an IP from my dhcp server. Is this the default behaviour of
Ubuntu server? If I can somehow give this interface an IP then I should
be able to SSH to it to get more information.

Most grateful for help on this as I'm very keen to get 14.04 running on
this machine.
