Hi there, I'm not sure if this should be in this forum or somewhere else. If it's not in the right place, please tell where where to post this.
I've been using Ubuntu for a few years now and never really had any trouble with it... until now.
I have a Ubuntu/Windows8 dual boot which a friend of mine set up for me since I have no idea how computers work (*hangs head in shame*)... recently I've been getting a black screen with some writing on it instead of the log on screen.
(Yes, yes, I know, 'some writing on it' isn't very helpful. I took a picture of it which I'd be more than happy to share. Is it possible to post pictures here? I could also type it up otherwise)
It's been happening intermittently so I would just switch it off and try again and after a few tries it would work again - since yesterday though it just won't work at all.
I could get to Windows all right though.
I'd appreciate if someone could help me! I guess I need to mention though that I really don't know much about computers at all and will therefore require very simple words please.
