Hi. Good day.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32 bits in my desktop computer with the following characteristics:
- AMD FX 8120 (new processor) Athlon XIII 455 (old one).
- Motherboard GA-880GMA-USB3 which includes an onboard Radeon HD 4250. It also has been updated to the latest BIOS version(F3) and does support the FX CPU. (http://www.gigabyte.com/products/pro...px?pid=3817#ov)
- Partitioned with both Linux 12.04 and Windows 7 as OSs.
- 16 GB RAM DDR3 Kingston
- More than half of my OS partitions is empty, also.
Today I bought a CPU to upgrade my computer. After I installed it, Windows loaded fine. I worked for a while with it in Photoshop and Illustrator and then rebooted.
- Ubuntu didn't start. All I saw was a bleeping cursor in the left corner of the screen for more than 10 minutes. Completely unusual.
- I restarted again in recovery mode. I saw strange conduct going on. I took pictures.
After showing this, it would freeze for, like 10 minutes. Then, I'd see this:
And it stays there forever.
I have already tried:
- Booting from the Ubuntu CD. (Both 12.04x32 and 12.10x64). Same thing happens and I just see a bleeping cursor in the corner after a short time.
- Searching the Internet for a similar error. Nothing.
- Loading both Optimal Defaults and Fail-Safe Defaults in BIOS.
- Booting from Knoppix or Slitaz Live CDs. Same thing. It gets stuck after a short while. But I get to see a little more of what's going on. Here are some pics I took while Slitaz was trying to start:
And here, it gets definetely stuck:
Please, help me recover my Ubuntu! I both work and study and I use it much more than Windows for my important stuff. What do you think is going on? As I said, Windows works just fine. It also detects all eight cores in the Performance tab in Task Manager.
