Natty Narwhal initialization

Asked by Gabriel Paiva de Oliveira on 2011-05-04

I'm new in Ubuntu, espite using it fairly since Lucid Lynx, and updated recently to Natty. Never had many problems, specially with maverick, but with this new version, the laptop simply won't start. It appears a screen as when the system crashes, with options (restart in safety mode and others) and the system starts only after choosing safety mode and "older Lynux versions". Does anyone have the same problem? What can I do to solve it?

Have you tried choosing just the Ubuntu option? I believe it is the first option and that is 11.04. Do not chose Notebook because 11.04 does not have a Notebook Version like 10.10 did.

Do you mean, choosing Ubuntu option when I start the laptop? I've tried,
but nothing happens.. then I tried the other options, and only the safety
mode worked...
    It wotk really well when it gets going, but the reboot has problems...
    Thanks for your concern...

Update-manager doesn't work well every time, and this new version of Ubuntu has some bugs on graphic.
Download Ubuntu Natty ISO image, boot on CD and choose "Try" instead of "Install". So you will be able to see if your graphic card is well managed.
If it is OK, boot on CD, choose "Install" and then "Upgrade". System files will be updated, but user files will be kept. This way of doing is more reliable than update-manager. For my netbook, I choose upgrade from USB key and had no issue. For my laptop, I choose update-manager and had issues with boot, graphic and Firefox!

Thank you for your idea, I've tried but nothing still happens though... Maybe the computer's damaged...

Could you retrieve previous CD of 10.10 and check with "Try" option, to check if PC is broken.

Can you help with this problem?
