    Question System freezes on restart or shutdown command

    Hello all,

    This is my first post here and I just installed ubuntu 11.04 for the first time.
    so far I love it, however the only problem is my laptop freezes on shutdown or restart command.

    I have an MSI a6000 (ms1683) laptop with a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Probably due to your video card. Do you get any errors?

    Don't say probably ;-D

    Umm, I'd say do the usual 'sudo apt-get update'

    Are you shutting down via Ubuntu or your power button?
    If you need help, i'm always on Google+

    Just because you have more beans than I, it does not mean you know more.

    i have the Nvidia GeForce 8200m G - I installed the latest drivers for it.

    Any kind of shutdown will hang. Whether it be the command shell or the usual shutdown button(upper right of screen) in ubuntu
