View Full Version : [SOLVED] Stuck at desktop when trying to restart

April 13th, 2011, 07:33 PM
I encountered this problem with ubuntu 10.10 64bit.

Whenever I hit restart it just hangs on the desktop. I tried rebooting from terminal by typing sudo shutdown -r and it hangs on "checking for running unattended-upgrades:"and the laptop just hangs and I have to force close it by holding the power button.

My laptop is an HP DV6 3150se
Core i5 2.5ghz
6 gigs of ram
switchable graphics intel/ati radeon hd 5650

Dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10
