View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 locks up, 9.10 keeps restarting

June 24th, 2010, 09:02 PM
I installed 9.10 on a laptop and everything went fine. I let it upgrade 10.04. 10.04 couldn't run for more than a couple minutes without locking up. I tried to go back to 9.10. As easy as installing it was before, it became completely impossible after the upgrade. I wiped the hard drive using another machine and still had nothing going for me. The main problem was that the screen would start flashing and the install would get no progress.

Somehow it eventually went through all the way and installed. Now that I have it installed, it reboots on its own. Sometimes it waits a few minutes, and sometimes it does it right away, over and over. At this point, it almost seems to be random.

I've searched around and can't seem to find anything like this (or at least nothing being solved). I have 9.10 (off of the exact same cd) running fine on another machine.
