I've recently taken the plunge to leave Windows completely behind me and explore Linux. I decided to start with Ubuntu to get the hang of it all, however, I seem to have run into a problem that I can't seem to find the answer to - Ubuntu will not load on the first occasion of pressing the power button or after using the restart option.
I put Ubuntu on my laptop on Saturday Night, taking the option to erase Windows and just use Ubuntu 15.10 which I booted from a live-USB. Everything seemed to go well and initial reboot went well.
However, I noticed on Sunday that things were not as well as they seemed and have been searching for an answer since then. When I power up my laptop, it goes to the GRUB menu, to which I press enter for Ubuntu, the screen flickers and then the whole computer grinds to halt and does nothing on a black screen.
At this point, if I press the power button off then on, it takes me back to the GRUB menu and again, I press enter for Ubuntu and then it will run. I currently have UEFI on my laptop as it was shipped with Win8 and I wondered if it was a possible cause of the problems.
I've run the boot repair app in USB live mode, and this is the URL http://paste.ubuntu.com/15073507
I would be grateful for any help in solving this issues it is already presented some problems when it comes to rebooting for updates.
