Debian Hardware :: Complete Hardware Failure - Black Screen Before Boot

Mar 5, 2010

No wonder my network-career is not getting in the mood... always other trouble.

Thing is: reboot and ended with a black screen: "no video available". i hit the reboot button. same result. I just, today, added a new DVD/Read-Write, so i have assumed thats the problem. Unplugged it: same problem. Nothing, not even the BIOS-display.

As i once started a PC without keyboard connected i did remember that that doesn't work (if i recall correct it gave me some beeps, today nothing like a beep). I replaced the keyboard and could boot.

But i don't trust this result. If someone might give an experienced opinion i would be very glad (i got several pc's, but this one is the only one which is really usuable, though its still a 200€ one, but it does all i need).

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Complete Install Failure?

Apr 28, 2011

I've tried about a billion times to get this to install correctly to no avail. This is the amd64 desktop edition, but I've tried with the 32 bit as well. I have a lenovo W500. The system never boots off the USB. It gets through a bit, with text output, and then stops. Sometimes it doesn't even give an error message, and other times I get something like udev failed while loading some pci device. I've tried re-downloading the iso several times, different USB keys, different USB key creators, CDs, to no avail.

I then thought, well, heck with it, I'll just install 10.10 and upgrade. Nope, there's a GPG key error for some bizarre reason, which is tripping up apt, but it's not going to tell me what key that is so I can go and get it (and apt-key update does nothing). Command line upgrades fail similarly. So finally, I go for broke and try to just install the thing with Wubi. Of course, that eventually crashes too.

Ubuntu :: Complete System Failure When CPU Is Stressed

Jul 24, 2010

I get a complete system failure when my CPU is stressed. It's not the temperature because when it crashes the CPU temp is only ~55 C. When it crashes the video freezes but the sound repeats itself. Example. I start handbraking a movie, then open a tv show in VLC. This is what I hear.

Did you get that tire - then it freezes

get that tire
get that tire
get that tire
get that tire
... etc

That continues until I reboot my computer. This crash is pretty reliable, as every time I load my CPU that happens. If I don't do anything CPU intensive, I don't get the crash. Also, if I only load up one core of my CPU, then everything is fine. However if I run something such as prime95 or handbrake (which both utilize all 4 of my cores) the computer will crash within 30 seconds.

Ubuntu 10.04
Corsair 750 TX PSU
AMD Phenom x4 @ 2.3 GHz
4 GB G.Skill 1066 DDR2 Memory
Nvidia GTS 250 1 GB edition

General :: Failure To Complete Installation Of 10.40.1

Sep 11, 2010

.After trying to instal 10.40 as a "guest" of Windows7 in its own partition on drive D I got all the way thru then re-booted to finish the install as requested. At that point after reboot I selected Ubuntu from the boot menu then it hung up after quickly displaying and overwriting some option numbers - probably for GRUB

I uninstalled 10.40 then tried Ubuntu 9.4. It worked better and gave me an option menu after the install reboot. If I chose "normal" it also hung up.I was succesful by chosing one of the other GRUB choices that it gave me.Now everything works but with an older version.

Just recently I notice this behavior. When the machine sleeps either on timeout or after closing the lid, it doesn't come back on opening or hitting esc etc..

The machine seems to come back to life, but the screen stays black. I even tried Ctl-Alt-F1 with no response.

Ubuntu :: Prevent The Sleep State From Being Lost On Power Failure?

May 17, 2010

When I tell the computer to go to sleep and there is a power failure the sleep state is lost. Is there a way to prevent this? I already know about hibernate and I'm using it but sleep is faster and there is no complete loading of the computer (BIOS, Grub and so on) it just goes directly into the desktop. As far as I know the sleep state is done when everything is in RAM and the computer is turned off but the RAM sticks still receive power. Is this true?

P.S. Can this be done with hibernate and SSD drives? As far as I can tell from what I've read it will be the same but with no state loss. Is this true?

Ubuntu :: Bash-completion + Mount = Failure To Complete Directories?

May 27, 2011

I've spent some time searching for answers to this and I haven't found much at all.Please feel free to post pointers to other threads that discuss this particular problem, if you find any.The problem is that in bash I want to mount an iso file to inspect the contents with the command:Code:sudo mount myCD.iso CDMount -o loopThe command works fine, but pressing tab to complete either the iso filename or the CDMount directory does not work. The completion suggestions I get are existing mountpoints which The completion suggestions should include the files and directories in the current directory. This worked with Ubuntu 10.04 and not with 11.04.

Ubuntu :: Complete System Backup In Case Of Hard Drive Failure

Jan 29, 2011

I have been researching the web for a program which will allow me to backup my entire hard drive so that I can restore my system if need be. I am however unsure which is the best one to use if I want to achieve this:Somehow I want to back up my hard drive containing my ubuntu system byte for byte so that if the hard drive were to fail I could simply go to the store, get a new hard drive, restore my backup and be up and running again without having to do any re installments of ubuntu or any other programs for that matter.

What is the easiest program that does this? I would like it to support incremental backup.rsync with the "Back in Time interface"?bacula?

Debian :: Complete System Freeze During Shutdown?

Apr 1, 2010

When I try to shut my PC down (press the shutdown button in KDE 4.3.4), the desktop quits, but the console screen does not appear (the CTRL+ALT+F1 screen). Well, technically speaking it appears but only a still (not blinking) cursor is shown, otherwise the whole screen is blank. This means that not only the X freezes but whole system, because the keyboard is unresponsive too. It happend multiple times now, and every time I reboot after such event, some kde rc files (amarokrc, kmailrc, etc...) get deleted due to the automated filesystem check (unclean umount), which means that I have to reconfigure these apps again.

My home partition is on a separate EXT2 partition (this way I have full r/w access from winxp) and every time this is the only one which gets corrupted. The system partition (which is EXT3) is always intact (no fsck starts on boot). I'm using Debian Squeeze by the way.

Ubuntu Installation :: Shutdown - Restart Failure - No Sound And Unable To Mount After Upgrade

Jul 22, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on a dual-boot system with Windows 7. Yesterday I upgraded from 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. After that, pressing the shutdown button and selecting shutdown or restart (whether on the login page or after I've logged in) will only bring me back to the login page. I can shutdown or restart if I do sudo shutdown now, but I'd prefer to use the GUI. Also, there is no sound now (not a big deal, but still not good). And I can't access my storage partition (not the windows7 partition, but a third ntfs partition with data on it). I get the error message that I am unauthorized to mount. I have the only account on this computer, so I should be authorized. This one is a HUGE problem for me, because I need to be able to access my data for work. None of these were problems before the upgrade.

Oh yeah, and quickstart is not enabled. Also, if I go to Power Management, and try to alter what to do when Power Button is pressed, my only option is Ask Me. I know these have been problems/solutions to the shutdown/restart problem in the past.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Doesn't Complete Boot ?

Aug 23, 2010

Some days ago I had Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.04, obtained by upgrading from 9.10, installed on dual boot (same HD).

However, I had some issues with Ubuntu's boot: after its selection in GRUB, the login panel would not display and the screen would remain black.

I was told that upgrading might lead to problems, so I uninstalled Ubuntu 10.04 and installed it by CD.

Now I have Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10.04 (this time the CD-installed version) on dual boot, but Ubuntu after 4-5 uses doesn't boot anymore!I've also tried to boot in recovery mode, but that was no use(the recovery panel does not show up).

Ubuntu Installation :: Monitor Goes To Sleep At Boot

Jun 18, 2010

infact im kinda of a "pre-life" Ubuntu user I have burned a CD-R disk with the ISO image of Ubuntu with infrarecord however... When Insert the disk and boot a screen pops up and I press enter then the language thing comes up and I select english but here is where the problem is, Its seems that for only a few seconds I can control my keyboard then it stops working...So everytime I try to click "try Ubuntu without install" I cant and it just sits there

after it sits for maybe ten seconds it looks like it is rebooting but then it says "Monitor going to sleep." and if I try to turn it back on its just a black screen. Also if I like Ubuntu (which I probably will) Im going to run a DBAN and install it from scratch and I dont really want any problems :/

Ubuntu :: Laptop Boot Failure - Invalid Enviroment Block - Unable To Load Default Boot Entries

Mar 3, 2010

Have been running ubuntu for sometime now and love its functionality...However since a recent update have the following issues..When I power on the laptop I get the toshiba logo followed by grub loading with the message ' invalid enviroment block" "unable to load default boot entries". When I then try to run the laptop off a LiveCd, the ubuntu splash screen appears with the loading process bar (horizontal line) displayed..however it then appears to display a black screen with no further activity..Now all of this is via an external monitor as my laptop screen shows no activity right from the very start with just a blank screen....so am really stuck here wondering if its a harware/software issue or a combination of both...

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Doesn't Complete Boot Up....makes Me Use Startx

Jul 3, 2011

I must have deleted a file or done something wrong because now when I start ubuntu11.04, my startup stalls at the blackscreen where it lists the output of current operations. Mine seems to stall at checking pulseaduio or stall at checking cron. I am not totally certain of the phrases but anyway, my only way to log in is to ctrl+alt F1 and sign in that way followed by startx. I copied some exact info down and here is where my computer usually stalls:

Screen says, Starting CUPS printing spooler/server [ok]
Checking battery state... [ok]
Stopping System V runlevel compatibility [ok]

This is the usual stopping stop for my computer.

Debian Installation :: Monitor Goes To Sleep During Boot?

Mar 1, 2010

I can't get debian 5.0.4 i386 to load I can get as far as root for crash repair during boot-up but much further than that and my monitor turns off. Ubuntu 8.04.4 live cd (kernel is 2.6.24 i believe) works but says I have to enter noapic in the boot string. APIC is on and greyed out i.e. not accessible in BIOS --- might be non-compliant Only thing I can think of is to add acpi=off in GRUB entry but the change doesn't seem to work or take effect. I added it to the relevant entries in menu.lst in grub and it still didn't take effect. Grub must be getting its config info somewhere else...

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrating From LVM To Normal Partitions - Boot Not Complete

Feb 20, 2010

I have an Ubuntu 9.10/64 Server configured with LVM in a 1Tb sata disk in my home server. For a simple server, LVM adds complexity if you need to recover your system, so I decided to migrate from LVM to normal partitions. I have another 1Tb disk to copy my system disk. In the backup disk, i have created same size partitions and trasfered files from /boot and root volumes with rsync, presenving perms etc... and excluding /dev /proc /sys etc... I have then modified /etc/fstab to mount new UUID's and reinstaled grub via live CD and chroot.

At this point, when I replace my system disk with backup one, the boot process start as usual, but when it starts loading services the boot process does not continue. The system is not "frozen". If I press intro, there is a line feed on screen. If I mount the backup disk in another system, there is nothing writed to /var/log/syslog or dmesg files during the boot process. I can change terminal with <alt>F2 but there is no login. In console, with backup disk I get:

....type 1505 audit.... operation="profile_load".....
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16
/dev/sda1: clean ......
fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16

And with original system disk:

Ubuntu Installation :: What Exactly To Delete In The Boot File To Complete Uninstallation

Mar 27, 2010

Uninstalled wubi (though I enjoyed Ubuntu I want to do a clean install instead of the wubi/windows piggy-back). However, I still get an option to choose ubuntu when rebooting. I know that there's something I need to delete in the boot.ini file, but all I read is "delete mentions of ubuntu" or "delete the ubuntu line".

I hope I'm understandably wary of just waltzing into the boot file and deleting something like this, so what exactly do I delete from the boot.ini file to complete the uninstallation?

This is what I have in the boot file:


So all I delete is the "C:wubildr" line? Or does all that do is remove the mention of ubuntu from the startup menu but I still need to choose XP as the OS I want to boot into during startup?

Ubuntu :: Machine Will Come To A Complete Stop About Half Way Into The Boot Process

Aug 11, 2010

I'm having small boot issue with my present Linux box, which is presently running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. When booting from a Live CD, Ubuntu 9.xx+ or any other linux variant I have, the machine will come to a complete stop about half way into the boot process. I think this may have something to do with the WiFi card that I have installed. Are there any suggestions that could help me remedy this problem short of removing the card itself?
