My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
I installed the command line version of Ubuntu off the minimal 12.10 cd and am working on building up my system from scratch. However, I've run into a problem:
Whenever I run a command like
sudo reboot or
sudo shutdown -r now and restart my machine, I always have to restart it twice. I let the machine boot up, I get the Lenovo splash screen, and then you can tell the screen is on in that it is "glowing" black, but GRUB menu doesn't pop up. If I power down the machine by holding down the power button it restarts like normal. Not sure where to start debugging this.
For future travelers, I upgraded my kernel and it fixed this issue:
$ uname -r 3.7.0-030700-generic
