Problem with Dell Inspiron 1520 - dual boot: Windows XP and Ubuntu.
After updating Ubuntu 11.10 to Ubuntu 12.04 shutdown->restart function is not working.
Another problem: starting Grub (version 0.97) menu screen shows old Ubuntu 11.10 entries.
After selecting 11.10 entry, Logon screen shows Ubuntu 12.04 title.
Restart function does not work before or after logon.
I installed Ubuntu and after completing the steps at the website and rebooting my computer shows a menu to choose between Ubuntu and windows 7.
When I choose Ubuntu it shows that it is completing installation and a dialogue box appears which shows the status of "copying files..." and then after a few seconds it shows "almost finished copying files" and it remains like that.

I try Ubuntu, and it shows up on Ubuntu.

I initially tried running Ubuntu off of a USB flash drive but the files got deleted, now when i boot my laptop it shows both Windows 7 and Ubuntu operating systems but the Ubuntu system says its missing a file and cant run it

I just recently started using Ubuntu (12.04) since a few weeks ago and noticed that the interface is very slow and sluggish: On Dash, I have to type the entire app name and wait a few seconds before it shows up in the search box, and a bit later before it displays search result
