There are a bunch of other threads, and one with this exact question ( Boot hangs after "Checking battery state...") is closed already (this I think was not warranted), but I haven't solved my problem.

Why does ubuntu hang at "Checking battery state..." when I don't even have a laptop or a battery? I'm using a desktop computer.

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.

I believe the other question was closed because it had been abandoned by the original user. – belacqua May 8 '12 at 17:03
The problem is gone, but I don't know why, perhaps an Ubuntu update? – Victor S Jul 4 '12 at 14:46
