Cannot run version 4 of linux.

First off, I have stopped trying to run this kernel, I uninstalled the thing, so I do not have access to any logs.

I run Debian stable and testing (2 computers) I have tried to use every version of linux-image-4* and they all do absolutely nothing, for a minute or two.

I only run the Debian packages, so it isn't my package, I have more than enough computing power, so that isn't it, either.

Has anyone else had the same problem?

That is all I am asking, does anyone else have the same problem?

PS: Like I said at the beginning of my question, I have no logs, and I have deleted the offensive kernel.

Don't have the problem myself. In the last 6 months, I've had 7 different systems that I have at one point or another ran Debian on with a 4.x kernel, mostly without issues. Posting from a Debian machine with kernel 4.4.

I once had a problem with Debian booting a kernel version with a 4 in it. I don't recall which hardware, which kernel version, what the problems were or whether I fixed it. Hope that helps...
