System Freezes at Grub

Post by vertex78 » Tue Feb 28, 2012 4:00 pm

My system loads and freezes at the grub screen. It does not give any error messages. I went through a tutorial for reinstalling grub and that did not solve the problem. It still does the exact same thing. It seems it probably has something to do with the graphics which i will let you look at the image rather than try to explain it. I am not sure where to start with trying to troubleshoot this problem and I know that there is not much you guys can do without knowing the specs of my system. But if someone could point me in the right direction on how to go about trying to troubleshoot this and resolve it I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi vertex78,
don't know the answer, but if you run

Code: Select all

inxi -G
from a live CD, it'll give info on the graphics card. Then perhaps you can find specific help on this forum, or others, relevant to that card.
What procedures did you try to repair grub?
Do you have the graphics problem when running from a live CD? If so obviously you won't be able to do the first command! Sorry!
Please Edit your post title and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.
