dev/sda1: clean, 552599/6111232 files, 7119295/24414464 blocks
After I turn on my laptop this message appears. The system never boots, the message just stays there.
I have had this problem occur a few times, and every time it was ODDLY Nvidia's fault - yes COUNTER-INTUITIVELY
If in Ubuntu after a long painful reboot run:
sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
or if locked try Ubuntu's awesome way of troubleshooting and try: Ctrl+Alt+F1 through F7 to get to "TTY1-7" and run the same thing. Reboot for good measure, and re-install Nvidia's Proprietary Drivers.
I hope I helped, Mark
ctrl+alt+f2 or f3
sudo apt-get update(enter password when prompted)
sudo apt-get installxserver-xorg-video-intel
I am not sure if this will work for everyone but I managed to fix this by removing every occurrence of
/etc/default/grub file and then by executing
This was because
nomodeset disables the use of any graphic driver. I disabled my
nouveau drivers before installing nvidia ones.
Though this might not be the case with everyone.
Lets first check your file system for errors.
To check the file system on your Ubuntu partition...
sudo fsck -f /
If for some reason you can't do the above...
gpartedand determine which /dev/sdaX is your Ubuntu partition
sudo fsck -f /dev/sdaX# replacing X with the number you found earlier
If step #1 doesn't fix your problem, then do this...
sudo cat /etc/fstab
pending fix here...
If you dual-boot with Windows, then do this in Windows...
change what the power buttons do
change options that are unavailable
powercfg /h off(turns off hibernation)
chkdsk /f c:
