Hi All,

I recently purchased a branded Dell Optiplex 3020 Desktop that shipped with
ubuntu. I removed the ubuntu installed in it and installed Xubuntu 64bit in
this Desktop through the torrent downloaded from
Latest LTS release: 12.04, Precise Pangolin (64bit Desktop)

I encounter a problem whenever I shutdown or restart;  the screen goes
black, my computer doesn't power off. The fans still run and the screen is
still on, etc. I have to hold down the power button in order to completly
shut down.

I tried to fix it taking the help from below URL but was of no use. It did
not work.


I am very new to using the Linux and it commands. Please guide me in fixing
the issue.

Thank you.
