I just installed Ubuntu 11.10 on quite old machine (AMD Sempron 2200+).

After rebooting I see only followed information:

* Checking battery state...     [OK]
fsck z pakietu util-linux 2.19.1
/dev/sda1: clean, 141591/2403744 files, 940774/9606656 blocks
Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox
* Starting AppArmor profiles    [OK]
speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
Checking for running unattended-upgrade:
* Starting bluetooth
* PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions
saned disabled; edit /etc/default/saned

and nothing more.

Ctr+Alt+Delete cause normal restarting (stoping processes and so on).

What is going on? How could I fix it?

Have you tried booting from the live CD or USB? – sbtech Feb 29 '12 at 20:40
you could try to boot into recovery mode by selecting it in the boot menu and then try to start a root shell – Daniel Apr 4 '12 at 7:57

Please wait some times at the time of booting.
May be you are selected recovery option from grub boot menu

After waiting several minutes (about 15 or so) the same information was displayed but not in the same order ("* Checking battery state" was displayed as last). I do not rebooting or switching off computer. Still waiting. – merkan Feb 29 '12 at 18:21
