leo5111,

Open a text editor as root. In a terminal type:

sudo gedit

Then navigate to "/boot/grub/menu.lst" and open that file. Toward the bottom of the page you will see a line like this:

## ## End Default Options ##

After that you will see several lines together that constitute your primary boot stanza. One of those will look something like this:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=/dev/sda2 ro quiet splash

Add a space and "acpi=off" right after the "quiet splash". No quotes.

Save the file and exit. Be careful and try not to make a typo.

That should do it. :-)

When you open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit

You will be opening it in root.

There is an "open" dialog you will see. Put / in the window and you will see all the files.

That is correct.

No problem, we were all new at one time. :-)
