Hello,

I am new in linux and i have a problem with the installation of Ubuntu.I used a cd version of ubuntu 10.4 but my laptop wouldn't boot.I thought of installing the previous version of ubuntu and then upgrade it.I used ubuntu 9 and it worked perfectly. But when the upgrade finished and my pc restarted it showed this message

[1.007098] Disabling IRQ#4

and it stuck.
What does it mean?

look at your bios settings about irq

if nothing can help or be done inside the bios settings, then on the boot line (F6), add irqpoll

Hi and welcome to the forums :)

What graphics card do you have installed?

I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9300M

The same message appeared when i tried to install mint 10.

I can not find anything about irq in the BIOS and the only thing that appears on my screen after the start up is the disabling message.

You can try using the nomodeset option when booting.

Press "e" to edit the entry and remove quiet splash. Type nomodeset and "Ctrl" + "x" to boot.

If you have booted Ubuntu you can check to see if the drivers are properly installed.
