  • I think your laptop is going to more heated. So it can be hanged. Apr 27, 2012 at 5:04

  • It may be due to RAM. If you can open your laptop then remove RAM, clean it and placed again. I hope your problem might be solved. Apr 27, 2012 at 5:31

Is there a reason you are using 11.04? With the new release of 12.04 out, perhaps it's worth trying a more up to date version.

  • The same version is working good with another system so I think there is no problem with that I think.

If using unity then try unity --reset. Else Observe if system hangs up on starting particular application. Also just try making new user account and use that (Some user specific setting might have gone wrong).

  • how to make unity --reset.I don't have any idea about that.Can you describe that?

  • if you are using ubuntu then ctrl+alt+t for terminal. It can be even found under accessories. May 1, 2012 at 17:47

Many people had this problem with ASUS(boots to black screen)

Try this:

Go to BIOS > Security> I / O interface Security> "New interface card". Set it to Locked.

I also had this problem before but after I did that Ubuntu worked.
