Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

Ubuntu always freezes at the login screen. I had the opportunity to login only twice since installed.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite C655D, with an AMD E-240 1.5 GHz 64x processor and Ubuntu 11.10 amd64.

I am a newbie to Ubuntu so I don't know what to do.

  • Clarification: I'm not able to choose fallback mode because the system freezes once the login screen appears.

Elaborate your question, can you login to GNOME Fallback mode? (you can select that from Wrench icon in login screen) –  Kush Oct 16 '11 at 14:02
This question should instead be filed as a bug report, thanks! Instructions here. –  Jorge Castro Feb 3 '12 at 1:15

You can try to disable PCI Lan card in your BIOS. When your computer starts, press F2 to go into BIOS settings. Make PCI Lan Card disabled.

The problem looks that both wireless card and wired card share the same ID. If you experience a system freeze during installation, then you can try to connect your Lan cable before starting installation.

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference.
