[ubuntu] Dell Latitude D510 Freezes Before Login Screen

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – About 3 months ago I put Ubuntu 9.10 on my old Dell Latitude D510 laptop, in the last couple of days got a weird problem. My computer starts and loads but when the Ubuntu screen appears just before the login screen, the one where the bar moves across, my computer sometimes freezes. I had no other problems and it happens maybe twice in every 9 boots. I checked the forum and googled it but couldn't find my exact problem, I apologize if I've missed it. I'm hoping somebody's got an answer. Thanks. (Hardware)
