Kali in XPS15 black screen after login

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Long time lurker (asides from software programmer, web programmer and whenever I've some time, avid reader).

I just re-installed after a long time Kali into my XPS15, and now I get a black screen after login, no matter what X I choose, Gnome, Classic or X11 Default.

 

Any ideas on what may be happening or how to fix it (I know it most probably is the drivers, but how to verify it?)

 

Thanks a lot

Read the journal and dmesg.

dmesg
journalctl -xe

Fixed it finally by setting up nomodeset quiet splash, which removes the flickering and blurring of fonts and so on.

 

Thanks for the tips anyway!
