My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
Good day all,
I have made the choice to reinstall my pc and use ubuntu 12.04 as the actual os and not win.
Usually I used ubuntu in a vm to play around and ready my knowledge for when when or rather if I would use it as the main os of my system.
A few days ago I loaded ubuntu on a laptop of mine for use as a web test server and internet sharing. This laptop gives me no problems apart from that it is old.
However, I got myself a new pc a few weeks ago and decided to load ubuntu on it now. After a hassle I was able to install the system on the pc by disabling a few boot options in the install screen of ubuntu(F6).
When I start the system up now it loads the usual orangy background but stays on that. No login no no nothing. The only way I managed to fix this was boot and load recovery mode and from there select "the top option" to continue the boot.
I don't mind this, as I know that nearly no one will figure out this process, so my pc will be secure. But the process is redundant and time consuming having to wait to time the shift keystroke perfectly.
Can anyone point me to a solution for this?
