    Unhappy 12.04 freezes during boot

    Hi
    Have a strange problem which I can't find a solution to.

    Yesterday evening I booted my new computer with Ubuntu 12.04 and checked some airline tickets, then turned the computer off. Nothing strange, no warnings, or error messages (as far as I know).

    This morning I tried to turn it back on but ubuntu froze just before the login screen had finished loading. I saw the graphics and I noticed that it hadn't completely finished loading and I couldn’t move the mouse pointer.

    After a giving the computer a few minutes without any change I rebooted it. Now I can't even load the log-in screen. It now freezes somewhere between Grub and the log in screen (Dual boot, windows seems to works).

    Any suggestions other than Live-CD->Save Stuff->Clean Install?

    The computer is a Fujitsu laptop and I used a Ubuntu windows installer two days ago (new computer) and ran updates so it should be up to date regarding kernel and such.

    Cheers!

    Cheers

    Can it boot the safe mode option in the grub menu?

    If yes, can you check if an update was made to the graphics driver yesterday?

    Thanks for quick reply.

    In the traditional Grub I would know how to do than, but since this is the first time I've tried the windows installer. There's (to me) a new version of Grub, in which I can't find any such options for the Ubuntu alternative (can find it for windows)

    Cheers!

    Sorry don't have any experience with the Ubuntu-in-Windows installer (wubi it's called I think?)...
