Ubuntu :: Laptop Keeps Crashing And Showing Error Message

Aug 8, 2011

I am having big problems with my laptop. I use a wubi install of Ubuntu 11.04 atm.
This happens like 2/3 times a day, basically I will just be doing something normal on the laptop, then suddenly the screen goes black with white writting - none of which makes sense to me

This is one of the screens that appears:

It stays like that for ages, then I have to restart.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Loading Error - Laptop Dead - Stuck At Error Message

Feb 21, 2010

I been running both OS's for a few months now with no major problems besides wireless internet issues. Today, however, as I go to boot my laptop up, the Dell logo loads with the F2 and F12 boot and setup options which both work. Directly after that though I get the message "GRUB loading. Symbol '?' not found. Aborted. Press any key to Exit." then it repeats when I push a key, and then it tells me to press F1 to retry, F2 to go to setup, or F5 to run diagnostics. It passes all the tests in diagnostics. I've tried booting off of the ubuntu cd I used to load it initially with no luck. So I'm stuck at either that error message or in setup but I can't go any further, and it does not change anything when I tried to boot from the cd.

General :: Screen Not Showing On Laptop But Showing On Projector When Connected

Apr 18, 2011

When I try to connect a projector to my laptop (already running) and hit the fn+f7 (the designated button for switching screen), nothing happens. I see "no source found" on projector screen and my laptop screen works perfectly. Now if I restart the laptop with the projector connected, I see all the intial booting messages on the projector screen (not on my laptop), then the gnome login screen appears on both the projector screen and laptop (when the login screen appears on laptop it looks like it has lower resolution than my usual laptop resolution). But immediately after I log in, my laptop screen goes blank, and projector screen becomes the only active screen.

If I restart without the projector, again all normal operation on laptop screen is restored.

I feel like I am missing some very silly options. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the output of xrandr when the laptop is connected:

Fedora :: F14 Laptop Can Not Hibernate / Error Message Saying "not Enough Swap"?

May 16, 2011

Recently my F14 x86_64 powered laptop started to present some bad behavior: it can not longer hibernate.

In order to "exercise" the laptop's battery, sometimes I let the machine run until the power goes off, but I learned that Fedora has an elegant solution: it puts the laptop to hibernate. However recently, perhaps after I installed the Catalyst driver (which is working fine BTW), when it tries to hibernate an error message is displayed saying something about "not enough swap".

I read somewhere that in some scenarios swap memory is no longer important for system's performance, that's why I created only a 1.1GB swap partition, which does not match the RAM (3GB) and I wouldn't think it should...

What can I do here in order for the laptop to hibernate again? Is the Catalyst driver the one with a problem, or should I expand the swap space for it to match the installed RAM? A workaround perhaps?

Software :: Unable To Run Cheese (webcam Tool) - Keep Crashing - Error "Error Decompressing JPEG: Fill_nbits Error"

Jul 8, 2010

I am on Ubuntu Lucid (updated till date). I am using Kernel Linux 2.6.32-24-generic Recently I am not being able to run Cheese (webcam tool). When run it is crashing. Upon starting it from prompt I noticed the following error : libv4lconvert: Error decompressing JPEG: fill_nbits error: need 2 more bits The program 'cheese' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)'.


I checked in Skype and there the webcam is working fine. I tried with Camorama but that always gives an error "Could not connect to /dev/video0, please check connections."

General :: Before Showing Up Loginscreen Display The Message Box - ICEauthority Not Update ?

Nov 30, 2010

I have OpenSuse 11.3, with KDE4. a few days ago, after an upgrade, are presenting several flaws in the system configuration.

But I think the cause of all is that at startup, before showing up loginscreen display the message box


Could not update ICEauthority file / var / lib / gdm / .ICEautority.

I gave CRTR Alt F1 to switch to text mode, and consult the file in that directory to verify the existence of the file and its permissions:


I've checked some forums, but apparently they relate to other scenarios that describe the solution does not work

Ubuntu :: Laptop Occasionally Freezes On Start Up With A Message?

Nov 24, 2010

I am using 10.4 on a Toshiba satellite pro L100 and have got it working well enough with ubuntu. However, every now and again it freezes on start up and I think it may be before the automatic disc driver check and scan that happens on start up now and again. It gets stuck and tells me

I only ask as I have to do a hard shut down and computers don't like them do they?

Ubuntu :: Installation On Xp Error Message That Says:" Unbuntu Installer : And Error Occurred: Coercing To Unicode?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.

Ubuntu :: Grub Error 15 - Reinstalling WinXP - Umpteen Installations And It Keeps Crashing

Apr 8, 2010

My set up is internal hard drive Windows 7, external Ubuntu Karmic. The reason I have it this way, despite Linux being my main OS, is because my internal hard drive is 6 years old and half the capacity of my external new one. Have tried quite a few set ups with various Linux platforms, but have finally settled on above. As yet, I don't know Linux or Ubuntu all that well. Getting somewhere, but it's a steep learning curve.

Because of constant errors reinstalling WinXP - umpteen installations and it keeps crashing - the problems are with security updates and SP3 - I finally bit the bullet and intalled Win 7. I only need Windows for a few essential programs or I'd happily never look at it again, so it filled me with horror doing this, but I couldn't take the crashes any more. So, today, Win 7 installs just nicely. However, I can no longer boot my external Ubuntu hard drive. The error is, 'Grub loading stage 1.5... Grub loading please wait... Error 15'. I load up the live cd, but when I try to follow instructions given to other people with Error 15 (editing files, accessing root) I don't have permissions.
