I never gave much importance because this happened to me too from time to time. What looked like a minor issue, but now I take this phenomenon has become very annoying indeed. I do not know how to begin to debug the problem ... any ideas? May well reach a solution.


Will try to explain my self a little better; When I turn on the notebook, the load grub ok.

After that, will I notice when I go to see the welcome screen only when if I see for a split of a second "creating node with uuid" If you do not see it means that I will see the black screen, but I notice that the disk is still working.


My laptop is a Acer Aspire 5253-0435 with 3gb of ram. Video is AMD Radeon HD 6320.

 # lspci | grep VGA
00:01.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Wrestler [Radeon HD 6320]

My OS is Opensuse 12.2 my filesystem is reiserfs.

No bootsplash? Is that what you mean by no pictures or grub? – warl0ck Jan 15 '13 at 14:13
sorry about my english I meant video... after grub it's all over. XD – maniat1k Jan 15 '13 at 15:11
Tell us more about your system. Which OS on what hardware? This might be an issue with your video card. – Martin Schröder Jan 16 '13 at 10:08
Are you using the AMD-drivers or the free drivers? – Martin Schröder Jan 16 '13 at 10:26
Do you have another machine so you can try to connect to the patient via ssh(1) or check if it is responsive via ping(1)? Or just CapsLock/NumLock LEDs? If it doesn't answer, it might just have shut down due to CPU overheating. Or due to problems with the graphics card (update your installation and try again). – vonbrand Jan 24 '13 at 14:26
