    help: the os fails to be load

    hi,
    i've had this problem for 4 months in my 2 years old computer: sometimes (not always) after the boot of the pc the pc stops and miss the loading of the OS. the screen stays black and i can hear the fans turning fastly and making noise incessantly. It started in august when i had ubuntu 4.11 now i'm using ubuntu/xubuntu 11.10 but the problem continues. When it happens i can only do cntrl-alt-canc and at the reboot appears the grub menu that asks me if i want to load the actual version of linux, the recover mode one, the previous...memtest. If i choose the actual version linux starts properly. if I choose memtest it gives the message error "To Small Lower Memory (0x99100 > 0x94c00)". In my pc the OS is in a Raid0 of a couple of WD hds.
    Is there somebody able to help me to solve this problem?
    thanks

    the fan spazz attack is usually something to do with the bios, although the fact that you are able acess the grub menu suggests that the problem could be something to do with your ubuntu installation.


    it could possibly be something to do with your ram too.

    try reseating your ram sticks (taking them out, and making sure they are properly reinserted) , and cleaning your fans and other hardware.

    if you still have a problem booting, try (after backing up your data) reinstalling your ubuntu installation.

    if that does not fix the problem either, it might be a deeper problem with your hardware, and it would be worthwhile taking it to a computer shop to have it checked out with professional tools.
