    pc wont boot

    i ran ubuntu for about two years on this pc, and now it wont boot. When it does it freezes. I think is related to the graphics but I don't know how to fix. The pc is an hp pavillion p6000 with an amd athlon ii x4 630. It has ubuntu 13.04 installed.

    Do you get past grub?
    Is the freeze-point consistent?
    Have you tried booting a live-cd/dvd/usb?
    Is it REALLY a freeze, or can you CTRL+ALT+F1 out to shell login prompt?

    The freeze point is not consistent at all. Sometimes it grub wont even come up, other times the pc can work for a while. Sometimes when it freezes right after grub, it will give a black screen which says: kernal panic- not syncing.

    Try booting the live CD you used for the install, does that still work?

    If the freeze point is that random I'm guessing some kind of hardware failure, I'm afraid. It doesn't have to be, but booting a live CD will at least make it easier to rule out most hardware issues.
