x-server fail to start every time i reboot
hi, i am new to ubuntu and loving it so far, but this problem has been bugging me for some time now making me question the stability of ubuntu. its that: i am using a dell inspiron 700m laptop. When i shut down, the power light does not go out so i hold down the power button until..., now when i restart 8 out of 10 times it gives me: x-server could not start... try restart in maintenance mode. sometimes it fix right away sometimes i have to be at it for a while. tried updating the dpkg manager also get errors. i would love a permanent solution. Anyone? please...
