    Gazelle boot problems

    I've been having boot-up problems with the two latest kernal updates (2.6.32-31-Generic and 2.6.32-30-Generic) on my old Gazelle (GAZV4). I intermittently (about 75% of the time) get stuck at a black screen after the initial ubuntu loading screen (the screen that says "Ubuntu" with the dots underneath it that light up as the system starts up). It never gets to the login screen. If I boot the 2.6.32-29-Generic kernal I have no problems.

    Do the dots continues to blink, or do they freeze?

    The dots are gone; all I have a black screen. Sometimes there's an unblinking cursor in the upper left corner.

    This all may be moot since this morning while plugging in my MP3 player the computer made the "bloop" noise that it normally only makes whern I force shutdown the machine (hold down the power switch for five seconds) and now is not starting up at all (i.e. nothing happens when I press the power button).
