How to fix “The system is running in low-graphics mode” error?

Reinstall the drivers depending on your case:NVIDIA

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current – More stable/tested version sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates – More up-to-date version

For other cases see this answer for details and follow the links there to help you along the way.


The simple way is to sudo apt-get install fglrx. If this does not work keep reading.

Go to, download the one you need, put it in some folder (rename it to “” to simplify name). Go to the folder where you downloaded the file and type chmod +x to give it Executable Permission. Now just simply ./sh and follow the onscreen steps.

After rebooting all problems should be solved. If you test ‘Additional Drivers’ with a problem like this it will finish downloading the package but then it will give an error. It also gives the same error if you use ‘Software Center’ and ‘Synaptic’. The only way was...

I was trying to install the GHMM packages in Python. I followed the instructions in The General Hidden Markov Model library. After that I followed their procedure:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential automake autoconf libtool sudo apt-get install python-dev sudo apt-get install libxml++2.6-dev sudo apt-get install swig

Then get the tarball and unpack or checkout from svn and run

cd ghmm sh sudo ./configure sudo make sudo make install sudo ldconfig

I found that I could not shut down or restart the computer. I restarted it by pressing the shutdown button. Then I ran into the message "The system is running in low-graphics mode". So I followed the solution in How To Fix ‘The System Running In Low Graphics Mode’ Error (Linux).

But when I try to boot the computer, it just displays a black screen.

Anyone knows how to fix...

Last night i tried to install Ubuntu and made a big mistake by formatting full HDD instead of C partition. I fixed all with testdisk. Somehow ubuntu on USB got corrupted and i had to install Windows again to make sure my files are really back and to make new Ubuntu USB Install. Now everything is fine except that i can not install ubuntu, it gives me error

The system is running in low-graphics mode.

I tried to boot with nomode instead of quaite splash (or something like that) but no luck.

The system is running in low-graphics mode is showing in both cases (Try ubuntu and Install ubuntu)
When i try to edit config or load generic drivers it has no effect at all and if i chose Run in low graphic mode for one session my screen just gets black and nothing happens.

Intel Dual Core E2500 (2.5Ghz)
Nvidia 8400GF 512mb
Flash drive has 16gb but only ~4gb for changes (Universal USB installer didnt allow more)

I faced a "The system is running in low-graphics mode error" like the on in this question How to fix "The system is running in low-graphics mode" error?

This happened in Virtualbox!

I'll go with the answer that the root file system ran out of space since I left the system downloading some stuff & previously I was notified that the system is low on space. Dumb of me but everyone makes mistakes. I was planning on moving the files to a shared folder later on.

The screen I get is similar to the screen in the link above. If I click on Ok, I get the following screen

None of the options work. I even tried to use the shell mode to try to free some space but all I get is this screen

So my question is how can I get back to my system & move the files to the shared folder (which btw needs guest additions which is was already installed on the system!) or better (if easier) an USB?

Note: I tried a live mode (iso) but I cannot do anything...

I have installed a software on my Windows 7 Pro x64 few weeks ago and now new update has been released. The software has been installed from MSI package. So I am trying to install the software via Programs and Features but I am getting error message 1001.

The message says:

Error: 1001. An exception occurred while uninstalling. This exception will be ignored and the uninstall will continue. However, the application might not be fully uninstalled after the uninstall complete.

I clicked OK and all was undo and the software has not been uninstalled and removed. I have tried also use the same MSI package and try to REPAIR as well as UNINSTALL but got same error message. So, Ho can we fix this problem and remove the software? Answer, we can can uninstall it from the system easy...

“Your System running in low graphics mode.” Yeah, you have been served son! Today was one of those dark days for me. I was feeling tired after a few hours on the computer configuring some stuff – particularly LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl) tools. I did this because I am planning to create some APIs for a project! So, I just let my laptop go to sleep and when I came back it was OFF. What the heck? I asked myself and tried turning it ON to the shock of my eyes. This is what surprised me;

Whenever I clicked the OK button to see what was next, the mouse disappeared and even using the tab key didn’t help because the choices given didn’t work at all. You can imagine how many unspeakable words I said here.

Instead of hitting my head on the wall 12 times, I fired up my other laptop and searched on Google for similar instances. I knew I was not alone here – Google the hell out of it. By the way, I needed another computer to do that because I couldn’t get anything done...

Ok, lets check the man pages:

df - report file system disk space usage


du - estimate file space usage

Those two tools were meant for different propose. While df is to show the file system usage, du is to report the file space usage. du works from files while df works at filesystem level, reporting what the kernel says it has available. Continue reading the du manpage support this:

Summarize disk usage of each FILE, recursively for directories.

it says du works with files.

df displays the amount of disk space available on the file system containing each file name argument. If no file name is given, the space available on all currently mounted file systems is shown.

here says that df do not care about the files but the filesystem...

exFAT (Extended File Allocation Table) is a proprietary file system designed especially for flash drives developed by Microsoft, which has applied for patent protection. It is supported in Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 with update KB955704, Windows Embedded CE 6.0, Windows Vista with Service Pack 1, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 (except Windows Server 2008 Server Core), Mac OS X Snow Leopard starting from 10.6.5,[6] and Mac OS X Lion.

exFAT can be used where the NTFS file system is not a feasible solution, due to data structure overhead, or where the file size limit of the standard FAT32 file system (without FAT+ extension) is unacceptable.

via: Wikipedia
The exFAT file system is not supported natively on Linux because it is developed by Microsoft and it comes with restrictive license which doesn't allow open-source operating system to implement it natively.

Installation of ExFat process, open Terminal and enter...

Nvidia drivers

If you have an Nvidia graphics card on your system, then its recommended to install the official drivers provided by Nvidia. The proprietory drivers would utilise the hardware properly delivering full performance.

Installation is pretty easy and it uses a ppa repository. So you do not need to compile anything. However, make sure to follow the steps properly.

These steps would work on Ubuntu and close derivatives like Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Lubuntu and also Linux Mint and Elementary OS.

1. Find out your graphics card model

Use the lspci command to find out the model of your graphics card

$ lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA -A 12 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] [10de:0a65] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller]) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device [1043:8416]

Here its GeForce 210

2. Find out the right driver version for your graphics card
