I resurrected and old Windows laptop (Dell Vostro 1520) with Ubuntu 12 a while ago. Everything was great (other than my infantile Linux skills) and I went ahead and upgraded to 14.04. Ever since I am unable to resume from a suspend.
Firstly, it takes a long time (30s – 1m?) before I can actually type my password in..
Once I can enter the password, I am logged in however then get presented with crash window(s).
After clearing one of the messages the desktop disappears and a black terminal screen appears momentarily and I end up back at the log in. This sequence of events loops until I shut down with the power button.
Info in the crash window seems to offer different information probably depending on which one I click on (whichever is first as they are loaded over the top of each other).
STUPIDLY I selected the options to ignore the errors in future so now I just get continually kicked out to the login screen with no messages.
I think I recall seeing info about Pulse Audio in one and some Nvidia stuff in another. I think these were the only two.
I am willing to get technical and do the work to find / submit logs etc if someone is willing to give me a bit of a hand regarding which log I'm looking for etc. As mentioned my Linux skills are pretty much novice level at this point however.
many thanks in advance for any help.
