Arrow Startup problems.


I don't think it's a problem in particular with Mint Linux considering it happened to me on Ubuntu and Xubuntu.
But anyways, every time I startup in Linux (Computer works perfectly on all Windows) the computer'll just hang, and the monitor'll go into standby. If I quickly hit F1, or ESC, or some random key, it'll keep the monitor from going into standby, and it'll show me what it's doing. It just shows what it's Starting up, and randomly throughout the list (Usually never happens on the same startup.) it'll just hang, the keyboard won't respond even though it's on. The numlock won't even turn things off and on (Even if it's on.)

It doesn't ALWAYS happen though, it has about a 15% chance of completely starting up. I'm logged into it right now, it works perfectlyyyy, just amazing. The only problem is that startup issue, which is a big deal. Sometimes it takes up to 30 minutes to get it started up (Mass restarting). Whereas earlier it started up on the first time, which has never happened before excluding then.

I've, just in case, did a hardware benchmark and uploaded it to my dropbox :

Thank you.

Thanks for the attempt, but no one has time to be going after false help.
Tall order, isn't it? Are you presuming that your descriptions of your problems are always that good that there is no need for tests and you'll get the solution presented at once? There are lots of really, really knowledgeable people here, I hope some of those will satisfy your needs then...

It's not as tall of an order as you assume it is.

I don't feel like talking to someone that's newer to Linux than even myself, whom is just going to go tell me to reformat, and reinstall.

That's as far as my signature goes.

But you've heard of proverbs like "four eyes see more than two" or things like "trial and error" not to mention moral support?

You did notice how much help you got in this thread?
