View Full Version : [ubuntu] Crash

May 13th, 2011, 03:22 AM
Ever since I got the update for 11.04 my computer has been acting funny, flashing and turning off on its own and locking up and alot.

This evening it froze on me and I went to reboot and when it came back up it wouldnt boot, I get the toshiba screen and I am able to go into bios. But it wont read my disc drive. I tried ALT + F1 and I then get my purple screen with the loading bar at the bottom for about 2 mins then I get a black screen with the flashing cursor. Occasionally it will tell me non bootable device. I have wiped this computer completely before so all I have is Ubuntu on which I do love. But please can someone help me please...And thank you!!!:sad::sad::sad::sad::sad::sad:

I am sorry if I put this in the wrong spot
