Ubuntu 9.04 doesn't boot and has weird colours

2012-06-15  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


I've reinstalled Ubuntu a couple times and iit seems that after a couple days of a fresh install I will start getting malfunctions in the OS (networking down). So I reboot and go through GRUB and I get to the Ubuntu loading screen. It loads fully then I get a couple flashing screens of reoeated weird colours, the it freezes.

I've loaded the recovery module and have tried to do an automatic graphics fix with no luck. I've had Ubuntu on this machine before without any troubles. Whats happening?
