I posted this in the Installation & Upgrade section but then found this thread and though my problem would better fit here:
I accidentally pressed the power button when my laptop was booting which resulted in a forced shut-down.
Now when I power-up I'm presented with Grub2 recovery options (see attachment for an example).
The problem I'm having is that I can not use the keyboard at this point in the boot-process so I can not select the OS nor boot a OS by pressing enter.
For some reason my keyboard only works once the OS has booted. I can not get into BIOS either. Neither with the build-in keyboard (in my laptop) nor with an external keyboard.
It has been this way for a couple of months and has never been a problem before (keyboard works fine when Ubuntu has booted).
I can boot a Ubuntu LiveCD (typing this message on the affected laptop booted using Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD).
So...how do I get rid of this recovery-console and boot Ubuntu?
