Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I recently came onto a problem with ubuntu 12.04. After forcing a shutdown, ubuntu refuses to start. All I get is a blank "command" screen after the normal BIOS screen.

I tried using a live-ubuntu usb and am successful booting until i encounter the purple ubuntu loading screen, where it stops.

I have been using this version without any problems for quite some while now.

Any kind of help would be appreciated!
