View Full Version : [ubuntu] Thinkpad t400 boot help

September 1st, 2011, 12:21 AM
Hi all,

I am using a thinkpad t400, and I am having difficulty getting to the OS. I recently did a fresh install of ubuntu 11.04. When I shut down, and try to start up, it goes to a blank screen and then never loads the OS. It is the only OS on the laptop. This didn't happen once I did the updates.

To get to the OS I have to go to an older version of Linux and it usually starts up. Question I have; Is it the HDD or is it Linux. Here is a pic of what I have HDD wise. I want to believe its the HDD, but it checks out ok, so I am stumped on this one.
