    [xubuntu] Re: Unable to Boot: Crash Immediately After GRUB

    I got my hands on some RAM from another laptop, of the same model, which was broken in other ways. I stuck it into my laptop and it passes the memtests, and it has made my machine a bit snappier, but...

    [xubuntu] Re: Unable to Boot: Crash Immediately After GRUB

    It is strange. I do imagine it is a hardware problem at this point, but it is perplexing that first of all, indeed, Windows works just fine and, secondly, when Xubuntu does boot up, I have no further...

    [xubuntu] Re: Unable to Boot: Crash Immediately After GRUB

    Hey danny,

    The issues are exactly as before; Windows still works fine. I also noticed a seeming pattern (not verified, just an impression): the boot failure usually appears during a cold boot,...

    [xubuntu] Re: Unable to Boot: Crash Immediately After GRUB

    I decided to just reinstall Xubuntu. I didn't have any issues for a few days, but as of just now, the problem is back. If anyone has any insight, I'd greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks for the input, danny. Yes, there's a wifi card; I hardly ever use a cable. I had a look and it seems most people just have problems connecting due to this issue, not a total failure. Also, I...

    [xubuntu] Re: Unable to Boot: Crash Immediately After GRUB

    I cleaned my fan just to be sure and, perhaps uncorrelatedly, Xubuntu booted up afterwards. The temperatures are a bit lower now, but I still don't think that was the problem.

    It does sound like that, but I'd be surprised to see it overheating within seconds of me pressing the power button.

    Perhaps I'll give it another go, then, and shake it a bit harder. For now, though, does anyone have any idea why my CUPS is tripping up?
