I have a computer that is HP Pavillian that had ubuntu 9.04 with gnome running on it. This is what happened:
I had to leave so I locked the screen and closed the laptop. I came back to it a couple of days later only to find that it was off. I tried to turn it back on but I get just past the POST test and the phenox tech screen with options comes up. Then nothing! It will not go further, I pushed both options that were displayed. and still nothing! Can anyone help me out, or is it just fried and need to toss the computer.
