    ubuntu 11.04 crashed

    Hi,
    I had Ubuntu 11.04 previously it was running good,
    but yesterday there are few problems like the top right corners volume,date,log out,etc options are gone,
    then when i clicked on "system testing" it wasn't responding(i mean no result),
    and after some time when i tried to restart there wasn't any movement of mouse system was hanged,
    then I restarted from CPU(by pressing the button) then there was nothing only black screen and cursor.

    what is the problem with my ubuntu,
    now what i have can do is there any solution.

    thank you for your time.

    11.04 reached end of life last month so you may want to install a newer version of Ubuntu.You can try the following.

    Unity Not Working

    Login to Ubuntu use Ctrl + Alt + F1 to enter TTY. Next enter user name, password, and run the following command.

    Code:
    unity --reset

    Wait until the process is complete and your user name appears again. Use Ctrl + Alt + F7 to renter the desktop environment.

    If there is error reporting wait until finished. If Unity doesn't appear within a minute or two restart and login to Ubuntu.

    Sorry, just have to ask, apologies but what do you mean it's end of life? Isn't that an LTS release?

    not it's not, 12.04 is an LTS release, 11.04 is an old regular release.

    It would probably be best to shift to 12.04

    Ah, thanks for that, I always thought x.04 were always LTS releases.

    On topic, if resetting unity doesn't work and you (OP) decide to upgrade, bearing in mind the issues you have I'd opt for a fresh install rather than upgrade.

    I'll go back to my hole now. Sorry for jumping in to this thread. *jumps out*
