View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 locks up on hp dv8 lappy

Hey guys, I've got an interesting problem. I've got an hp dv8 laptop and have installed ubuntu 10.04 64bit on it. The system seemed to work fine for about 24 hours after the install, then the system locked up permanently.

I'll turn it on and the system will boot to the desktop. It then asks me for my keyring password and here is were the system locks up. I can move the mouse, but not input anything. Clicking or typing does nothing. Multiple reboots yield that same result each time.

Also, I tried installing the 32 bit version and ran into the same problem on the exact same timetable. Anyone have any ideas?

Any leads on what might cause this sort of lockup would help.
