I am not sure what I did wrong. I am fairly new to Unbuntu.
I had Unbuntu 19.10 installed on my laptop. It was running pretty good. I had VLC, Gimp, Wine, Winetricks and ZBrush (through Wine) installed plus whatever comes preinstalled. I was trying to install Kdenlive but was not able to get it to install without problems. I shut down and then all heck broke loose.
I was not able to use it for a few days and when I did it was so very slow that I was waiting 10 plus minutes for it to boot. It just sits on the purple screen. Then when it did boot it would take several minutes to open my files. I tried again to install kdenlive with no luck.
I thought it was because of all the times I installed and uninstalled kdenlive. I thought I should start all over and tried to install a new copy of Ubuntu 19.10. Now it is worse. It installed just fine. Then said It needed updates. Started the updates. Then said to restart. It never restarted.
I found a Ubuntu help that said to open the GRUB menu and go to Advanced options. When I did it showed 2 recovery mode options in the menu. It seems like insead of deleteing partions it just added new os to another partion. I know Windows makes you delete partions when you install it. Not sure how Ubuntu works.
I do not know what to do now. This laptop is only a year old and I think I can never fix it again. Please help.
If you need any other info I missed please let me know. Thanks in advance.
