    slacker radio bricked my 12.04 OS

    My youngest son called and asked me help activate his slacker.com acct.

    Since he's my son I jumped in without testing the water

    Now that machine is bricked

    Any thoughts?

    What exactly did you do?
    What happened when you did it?
    What do you mean by bricked? Are you getting a BIOS screen or the Ubuntu splash screen?

    The more information you can give the better we can help you.

    I've just looked at the website and I can't see anything that could cause any problems.

    I don't know what happened. As soon as I accessed that web page I got a pop-up window with a progress bar. Then X just froze, no keyboard, no mouse, nothing. So I did a hard reboot.

    Then BIOS seemed to pass OK and Ubuntu appeared to boot OK but no keyboard or mouse, so I tried a live CD and it worked fine. Then I fiiddled a bit in recovery mode w/o any success so I just reinstalled.
