Reboot/Shutdown hangs up.....


Hello all,

I was using ubuntu Gutsy till now and had no problems. I tried to upgrade to hardy using update manager and it failed as the internet connection was lost. It created a lot of problems in Gutsy and thought of manually upgrading. Took all the backup and Hardy is running. But when I need to shut it down or reboot it, it hangs in middle and never turns off completely. I have to power it off manually switching off the buttons. I need to know what is the issue and what needs to be done to make it shutdown cleanly. Gutsy never had this problem.

Send a copy of the shutdown until it hangs if possible

reboot

when booting find the terminal the boot info is posted to...is it hanging in the very beginning? If so, check bios info, if not, the former should help you isolate the issue, such as a driver, etc.
