View Full Version : [ubuntu] Will not boot after a freeze up!

March 16th, 2010, 03:37 PM
Okay - I just installed Ubuntu 9.10. It took several attempts but I got it. I find that my internet freezes very easily and when it does it will freeze the whole computer forcing me to manually shut it down.
PROBLEM - it takes almost two days for Ubuntu to kick in during the boot! I'll restart my computer, the black background with the little ubuntu loading icon will appear...then a few commands will flash on screen (too fast for me to read) and then black screen. It just STOPS booting.

Any ideas?? I loved Ubuntu on my boyfriends computer, hence why i'm trying it...but im SO frustrated that I may just go back to Windows.
Please help :)!!!!

What kind of computer do you have? How much RAM and disk space?
