As you can see from the title, I am having trouble with booting into the newest kernel of Linux (3.2.0-36) from the grub. I am dual-booting Windows 7 Pro with Ubuntu 12.04 and running Ubuntu as my primary OS. I have done a lot of checking in the forums and still haven't found a solution that solves my problem.
My problem is that when I attempt to boot into the default Linux kernel, the boot takes forever and nothing is displayed (except a purplish screen that reminds my of the BSOD). I am a total noob to Ubuntu so I have no idea what I can and can't do in the boot, such as opening terminals, getting error reports, etc. I started using the 12.04 just a few weeks ago. If I do a boot repair (which I had to originally from the LiveCD in order to get the grub to work), I can boot into the newest kernel quickly once and then every subsequent boot takes forever. Also, I have noticed that there are a few stability issues, such as programs randomly closing (my screencasting software). However, one last thing to mention, I am able to boot into a previous version of the kernel (I am currently in 3.2.0-26).
Does anybody have any ideas?
P.S. If you want to see any error reports, you will need to "spell it out" due to my status as a noob, but I do want to learn all that stuff so feel free to slap me upside the head. :)
