I just installed 9.10 on a old (slightly worn) Dell desktop and now it won't boot from the hard drive. Install went fine, I ran the updater, and installed TuxGuitar.

Rebooted and nothing. Grub flashes a message like itís starting but the screen goes blank right away.

First time I thought it was a failing hard drive so I replaced it (not a new one but not a coffee can with marbles).

When I boot from the CD and select the boot from hard drive option the computer boots fine and everything runs great (until I re-boot it).

Iím not sure where to look for answers Ė what log files should I be looking at?:confused:
