View Full Version : [ubuntu] Frozen Splash Screen after updates.

December 18th, 2011, 01:19 PM
Hi folks please be gentle as this is my first post.

I have been using ubuntu for approx 4 years now with few problems and the ones I have experienced, have been solved by recourse to the forum posts or my brother who is a unix guru.
I must say I am not happy with the new look ubuntu and its latest GUI but that is another thread.

So to my problem.
I am running 11.10. After installing updates and re-booting my laptop 'hangs' on the splash screen.
The grub is loading no problem and I am able to boot into a previous version (1.99-12ubuntu5 ) and I can also boot into recovery mode or Windows Vista 32 as I have the laptop set up for dual boot.

This happens 100% every time. i have looked through previous threads and stickies but they do not seem to apply to this problem as I can boot into previous versions without a problem.
