so to begin, im not new to linux.. been using linux as my primary OS on every computer i own for years..
recently i upgraded the cpu on my desktop and it broke linux.. here is my story.
first here is my desktop specs..
Gigabyte M61P-S3 motherboard with 4gb (1gbx4) DDR2 ram.. at 5-5-5-15-20-2T Dual channel
AMD x2 6000+ socket am2
eVGA Nvidia Gts 450 1gb pci-e video card
500gb SATA HDD
been running, 12.10 32bit for a couple months with gnome-shell on top of ubutnu.
i have been using the 310 nvidia drivers.
zero issues.. everything is great.
so the other day i got a new cpu..
an AMD x2 7750 socket am2+
i put that in and turned on my computer and this is what happened.
first it boots up to the greeter, no problems, takes like 30 seconds.
you log in and the computer freezes up.. no activity for like 3 to 5 minutes.
it then loads for a few seconds, then stops and hangs for another few minutes..
if left, it will finally boot up to the desktop.
if you click on anything, to say open a program or even right click the desktop to bring up the menu, the system will hang for several seconds.. mouse doesnt move or anything.
then after a bit it will start working again.
if you get to open a program, say the file manager.. just moving the window on the screen will cause the system to hang for several seconds. again the mouse doesnt move or anything.
this will go on for a few minutes until finally the computer freezes and you have to force shut down.
before anyone says its the cpu..
i installed windows 7 ultimate on a spare hard drive and this is what i am using now..
its really fast.
7.3 in the index.
so ive tried to reinstall ubuntu 12.10
ive tried to install kubuntu 12.10
i dont know why linux wont run..
