Thanks in advance for your time.
My computer, a four year old HP Pavilion dv2000 running with Ubuntu 9.10 since half a year ago, sometimes shut downs and sometimes gets me to a black screen where I can read in the first line: “Ubuntu 9.10 pablo-laptop tty1” and in the second line: “login pablo-laptop:”. Sometimes (only) it allows me to log in, taking me to the login screen that appears after switching on the computer. After logging in on that screen it initiates the computer but all the programs I had opened are closed and I have lost the information. This has been happening to me since long ago but never asked in forums. It is quite annoying and I would be happy to solve it.
Do you think it ca be the CMOS battery?
This other thing (check the link below) happened to me not long ago and some people suggested it could be the CMOS battery:
Have a good day. All the best,
