OK guys, we have what sounds like 3 kinds of Ubuntu hang up. So we
better get a handle on what the hang up is really like. Here are some
questions about what your hang up does:
1. What do you see on your screen:
I see a cross hatch multi color screen.
2. What does your keyboard do?
My keyboard appears dead. A Ctrl-Alt-F1 does nothing.
3. What does your mouse do?
My mouse appears to not work at all.
4. How do you fix the hang up?
I turn off my computer and then back up.
Please fill in your effects so we can see what the differences are.
