View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.4 will not power off laptop - Please Help!

June 7th, 2010, 02:44 PM
I have installed Ubuntu 10.4 LTS onto my Dell 1536 AMD laptop. I've been struggling for two weeks with several issues. I'm not a newbie to Ubuntu, but I've become very frustrated with this version and I'm close to needing to go back to W7 (yeck).

I have surfed these and other forums for almost two weeks now and have used workarounds and supposed fixes that don't work. Here is one of my issues:

It won't shut down. When I shut it off or reboot it, it beeps, gives me a blank screen, then gives me a multicolored screen. Then the screen fades back to white, and does not shut off. Not very happy with that.

Can anyone assist me with this?
