This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Can you add contents of your /etc/default/grub file, particularly line 11? It should probably be: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" - I'm guessing the splash has been moved outside the quotes or something. –  Caesium Feb 17 '12 at 13:46

Try cat /etc/default/grub :) –  Caesium Feb 18 '12 at 13:53
This question appears to be abandoned, if you are experiencing a similar issue please ask a new question with details pertaining to your problem. If you feel this question is not abandoned, please flag the question explaining that. :) –  Seth Dec 28 '12 at 1:36
@hillary If you still want help with this problem, please run this command here (or comment to ask for help if you have trouble with that). We'll probably close this, but if you can provide more information--such as the output of that comomand--then it can be reopened (you can comment or flag the question to request it be reopened, after expanding it). –  Eliah Kagan Jan 12 '13 at 5:33
