Hello,

Well today I turned on my computer like I always do but it was hanging up at boot time. Normally if this should happen I just reset it and then it boots but this time was different it just keep hanging up at boot time.

The boot messages showed something like this:


[ 0.116022] CPU0: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU 650 @ 3.20GHz stepping 02
[ 0.232623] Performance Events: PEBS fmt1+, Westmere events, Intel PMU driver.
[ 0.232791] ... version: 3
[ 0.232841] ... bit width: 48
[ 0.232887] ... generic registers: 4
[ 0.232937] ... value mask: 0000ffffffffffff
[ 0.232986] ... max period: 000000007fffffff
[ 0.233037] ... fixed-purpose events: 3
[ 0.233086] ... event mask: 000000070000000f
[ 0.233473] Booting Node 0, Processors #1And the system hangs.

Under normal conditions it would look like this:


[ 0.233473] Booting Node 0, Processors #1 #2 #3
[ 0.771041] Brought up 4 CPUs
...
...Any ides on what could be causing this behavior? A Live CD boots normally on the same machine. Yesterday I installed some 32 bits libraries in /usr/lib32 to try and run a 32 bits version ePSXe in my 64 bits system but I cannot think of a connection between that and that strange behavior specially in that phase of the boot process.

Should I be worried about my hardware?
