View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hardy stops at login following new install

May 3rd, 2008, 12:59 PM

just completed fresh hardy install and all went fine. Very first boot was normal login followed by white screen and stop or freezing. Not total lockup but close. (Still see HD light blinking now and again.)

The first install was clean install with empty partition and same thing. Normal login then screen goes white.

The most recent install is where I reformatted the partition clean again and installed Gutsy and and then last night upgraded to Hardy through update manager. Same thing in both scenarios and that is "Gnome freezes" right after login.

Whats so different between Gutsy and Hardy?

Also strange is the live CD works perfect.

Box is:
Lenovo thinkpad T60 with Intel 945GM express video.
2 gig mem
100 GM HD partitioned 50% with 8.04 the other half with XP Pro
Wireless LAN is Intel
Wired LAN is also Intel I believe.

Anyway Help... I miss my Ubuntu please help. Thanks
