I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Fedora 20 and after a restart the laptop got stuck after this message:

Ignoring BGRT invalid status 0 (expected 1)

The starting process runs properly until the Fedora logo finishes to fill up. Then the screen flashes about 6 times and it stops. On the top of the screen I see the above message in yellow and then a few lines (0 to 4) of other services that have started successfully. This is where the GUI stops completely. If I go to another TTY I can log in properly and all services are running correctly. The last line of dmesg is this:

Adjusting hpet more than 11%

If I restart the GDM service the system behaves the same way, flashes the screen about 4 to 6 times and nothing else happens.

I'm not sure what changed recently on this system that could have caused this. And I have no idea what exactly is causing this freeze.


Here's the Xorg.0.log file.

  • Can you post the contents of Xorg.0.log? – amphetamachine Jul 13 '15 at 14:21
  • @amphetamachine the log file is too large. Is there any particular part I should look for or post? – slybloty Jul 13 '15 at 19:38
  • Use Gist to post the large file. – amphetamachine Jul 13 '15 at 20:48
  • @amphetamachine Thank you. I updated the question with the log file. – slybloty Jul 13 '15 at 20:56

I solved this problem by installing Fedora 22. Not the route I wanted, but since the issue was taking too long to fix and I couldn't find anything to point me in the right direction I had to choose the reinstallation.
