a cold boot is booting from power-off. shutdown the computer and turn off the power. wait a few seconds, then boot.

I found i had Screem installed on my machine, after i read this thread, and ran it to see what it was like, and it hung instantly, never got past that bloody splash screen... I was able to Ctrl+C out of it tho...

Isajera.. a COLD boot.... That's when you pour iced water into the PSU, and then kick it till it works again.

I don't know how to get rid of the splash screen, but maybe this will help you fix Screem. Check this page out.

woohoo!!!

finally got rid of that stupid splash screen!! I went to superuser terminal,
and then I did a ps -aux, and it gave me
a list of all the processes that were
currently running, and then I did a
kill -9 "process #", and it took me a couple of kills to get it done, cuz that
screem was in the list at least 3 times...

But all is well now,
