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

Everything was working fine, then Ubuntu froze while using Chrome (the mouse/cursor was still responsive, but nothing else was), and I haven't been able to boot into Ubuntu since.

When I select any of the Ubuntu options in the GRUB, it hangs at the blank purplish screen when first booting in.

I am dual booting with Windows, using GRUB2. I was using Ubuntu 12.10 with Gnome 3.6 when it froze.
