View Full Version : [ubuntu] System freezes on restart or shutdown command

June 12th, 2011, 04:17 PM
Hello all,

This is my first post here and I just installed ubuntu 11.04 for the first time.:p
so far I love it, however the only problem is my laptop freezes on shutdown or restart command. :(

I have an MSI a6000 (ms1683) laptop with a clean install of Ubuntu 11.04

Any help would be greatly appreciated.;)

Probably due to your video card. Do you get any errors?

Don't say probably ;-D

Umm, I'd say do the usual 'sudo apt-get update'

Are you shutting down via Ubuntu or your power button?

i have the Nvidia GeForce 8200m G - I installed the latest drivers for it.

Any kind of shutdown will hang. Whether it be the command shell or the usual shutdown button(upper right of screen) in ubuntu
