    Ubuntu freezes while booting up

    I have Ubuntu 11.04 running on a sony VGN-FZ240E. Everything has worked great with this PC while running Ubuntu, until last night. I was using my PC yesterday, and all was well. Until, I packed it, drove home from school. I was doing some work on my desktop because my mobo had died. When to turn the laptop on to google something, when it didn't fully boot.

    What happens is when I press the power button, I get the bios load screen. Then the purple Ubuntu screen (not the load screen, just a flash of a purple screen). The computer then goes to a black screen. (Note: the screen is still on, but just solid black) I can do only one thing while it is like this. If I simply press the power button once, then the computer will go to the Ubuntu shutdown load screen, and shut down. I'm at a complete loss as to what is wrong with this.

    PC Specs:
    Core 2 T7250 (2GHz)
    2GB RAM
    250GB HHD
    Integrated CD/DVD Drive
    Integrated Wireless N
    Intel Moblie Graphics Media Accelerator X3100

    Re: Ubuntu freezes while booting up

    Do any of the recovery mode options work?
    I mean booting in recovery mode, checking whether just the root shell works, boot into file system check, etc.
    I would do the following:
    - boot in recovery mode
    - then check whether the shell works
    - repair broken packages
    - clean
    - boot into file system check
    - see whether it works again
    - if it doesn't, try some of the boot options such as acpi=off
