View Full Version : [xubuntu] Freezes at start up

November 13th, 2012, 01:07 PM
Hey Guys,

I am in desperate need. My Xubuntu just died on me. I am unable to boot. See the spalsh for a few seconds then I get

* PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions
saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned

* Checking battery state ... [OK]

and then it just freezes.

I pressed alt+ctrl+F2 logged in and got this

lspci -vnn | grep VGA
... 00:02.2 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporqtion N10 Family
Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:a011](Prog-if 00[VGA controller])

The version that I am using is 11.10.

If anybody can help me that would be great.

search the line:


change for:


and save the changes.

about xorg-video, try this:

sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

Thanks for the reply! Unfortuneatly the editing of the pulseaudio file did not change it. it still freezes.

It says

saned disabled: edit /etc/default/saned

* Checking battery state... [OK]

I am in agony. :(

already tried reinstalling the drivers for your graphics chip?

try to do as you mentioned and commented how it went.

try to see if you have broken packages.

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

commented how it went.

If you have any more tipps please let me know.

Well, of course, there is one last option that you can apply in your case. you can edit the grub. try with this command:

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

search the line:


and add these parameters:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi=off noapic nolapic"

save the changes and apply the command:

sudo update-grub

reboot the system and you comment how went.
