    Question Freeze during shutdown

    Hello,

    I'm taking my first steps with Linux.
    I have installed Lubuntu 13.10 on an old laptop PC (HP Omnibook VT6200, Pentium 4-M 1.40Ghz, 512 MB RAM, 40GB HDD).
    Everything seems to work fine (I had just to correct a problem with Lubuntu Software Center), except an issue with shutdown...
    When I select "shutdown" (in italian language), the screen goes black with some text, then it clears and gets dark-green (sometimes a little brighter) with the Lubuntu logo in the middle. This logo has wrong colours, and is animated (blinking dots). After some seconds, the dot animation stops, and nothing happens. I have to turn off the computer "brutally" with the power button.
    (The Lubunto logo has wrong colours also during boot, except for a second before disappearing, when it gets coloured correctly -- white and blue if I remember well.)

    Do you have any suggestions to solve this?
    Thanks

    What kind of video does it have? Enter in Terminal:
    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    What do you get?

    I get the following:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] RV100/M6 [Rage/Radeon Mobility Series]

    I also noticed that during boot I get some errors regarding "ali 1535 smbus" (but the boot proceeds anyway).

    Does it help pressing Enter when the computer seems to sleep during shutdown?
