[Bug 819531] Re: Computer crash at start-up


stephisa41, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any
activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? If
so, could you please test for this with the latest development release
of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com
/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Computer crash at start-up

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  Since the update from 10.10 to 11.04, my computers crashes at startup. Symptoms are the following :
  - switch PC on
  - "Asus" logo display
  - then screen shutdown ("no signal")
  - PC restart
  - message appears "Boot fail, press F1 to continue or DEL to enter BIOS"
  - by pressing F1 PC restarts normally

  This issue does not exist with 10.10 kernel (tested from a
  USB HDD). I tried the 3 available kernel (2.6.38-8, -10,-11),  but
  result is the same at each try.

  It seems that I am not the only one with this kind of problem
  (http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=581701, http://forum
  .ubuntu-fr.org/viewtopic.php?id=573951&p=2). Are you aware about this
  problem ?
