    I've had a similar problem since I updated my Toshiba Satellite, except that it goes from grub to a white ubuntu logo in the middle of my screen and hangs there.

    Yeah, I thought about this, but windows didn't exactly mount the drive. Maybe it's because windows doesn't "do" ext3, or maybe not, but there was no way to safely remove. However, unplugging and...
