View Full Version : [ubuntu] Freezing problem with Thinkpad boot

December 20th, 2008, 06:16 PM

I'm new to Ubuntu, and have just installed the alternative iso of Intrepid Ibex on a Thinkpad T21.

For reasons I can't fathom, the machine almost always refuses to boot with the power adapter plugged in, it hangs just before the 'X'should appear on the screen, going to a blank screen. If booted on battery, no issues.

I assume that this could be related to processes which are skipped to safe time when running battery only, but have no idea how to proceed...

TIA :-)
