samnjugu - please disregard what soulxcavtor said. He posted his thread approximately 6 hours ago and is too impatient to wait for people on the other side of the world from him to see his thread. soulxcavtor, do not post crap like this on our boards.

samnjugu - can you post the output of dmesg (open a console and type in "dmesg" without the quotes). Normally the last 10 lines or so are what we need as it should show what is going wrong. As far as what you will lose, well it depends on how your partitions are set up. If you just have /, /boot and swap as reinstall will overwrite everything.
