My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
I've a new Dell Inspiron special edition with Intel® Core™ i7-3612QM and Ati Radeon HD 7730M. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 in dual boot with Windows 7.
Yesterday after a kernel upgrade from
3.2.0-27, Ubuntu doesn't boot anymore. I see the grub and when selecting "Ubuntu with Linux 3.2.0-27-generic", the system switched to a black screen with blinking cursor. No console enabled, at this time I can only shutdown the system with the power button.
If I select previous Linux version, Linux 3.2.0-26 starts without a problem.
/boot/grub/grub.cfg and record of version 27 and 26 have same parameters.
Is it possible that the problem come from error in 3.2.0-27 kernel's file? How can I fix this issue? Is it possible to remove 3.2.0-27 kernel file and reinstall?
