Hi, since a few days ago after selecting Linux from the grub menu (dual boot with Windows 7) it hangs on a BSOD (the one with the blinking underscore in the top left in 800x600 resolution). Also the timer has disappeared from the grub menu to auto-boot into Ubuntu.
When it hangs at the BSOD the HDD sounds like its loading but nothing happens.
After i updated all the recommendations on update manager in Ubuntu 12.04LTS.
then after restarting, Ubuntu boots into a black screen with something like a blinking cursor and then some messages display afterwards. But after booting, it works normal as usual.
Is this a bad thing?
Upon checking what version is installed on additional drivers.
I have try to modify the booting image for the NST (booting.pgm) and the screensavers (default.png & Bronte_Sisters.png) and now when booting I get a white screen (then it boots) and when my screensaver is on I only get a black screen...
I checked the other threads for a solution but can't seem to be able to find any fix to it.
While changing my monitor setup I somehow managed to disable my nvidia video drivers. Now whenever I boot the computer it flashes the Ubuntu loading screen and then goes plank or distorts the screen and hangs. I have tried removing the drivers from the terminal and reinstalling them to no avail.
I don't know why, but when i first boot openSUSE at the morning in my Aspire it hangs over and over again. I don't know why is this, but the gecko appear, the white bar appear, and moves 1cm, and then, puff no more blinking from the hard drive. Then i force te reboot, over and over until works.
