2005 Freezes on startup
On random occasions, Mandriva just locks up. It gets just past the bootloader and to the screen with the penguin face. The loading bar in the lower left doesn't do anything, even after waiting for a while. I hit "ESC" to see verbose mode and it just says press "I" to enter interactive startup mode. Hitting that key does nothing. I hit CTRL+ALT+F(1-9) and there was no additional information on any of the screens (most were just black screens). Hitting CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE at this point didn't seem to do anything so I had to hit the power switch to get out.
This only happens on seemlingly random occasions. Then next time this happens, what can I do to assess what is happening and what is going wrong so that I can find a solution to this problem?
