Hello, my old PC died, RAM/motherboard failure or something and I cannot find the parts to upgrade it where I am located.
So I bought a new bare bones system and installed my Ubuntu 11.10 OS drive (from the old PC) in the new PC.
But I am not progressing beyond the Grub menu, the system just hangs after the Grub screen. Once it managed to get to the Ubuntu red dot splash page but that was it.
I am sure this is something to do with the new PCs hardware configuration, may be the new built-in graphics card on the motherboard is not recognized?
As the old PC is dead, I cannot un-install the graphics drivers and any other proprietary drivers from Ubuntu.
The old PC was an AMD 32 bit processor with an Asus motherboard. The new PC is Intel 64bit with an Intel motherboard. Would this cause issues as well?
Is there anything I can do to make Ubuntu check the configuration and update any necessary drivers?
Any advice is appreciated.
