Okay, I am extrememly new to all of this, but I need some serious help!
My sister accidently bumped the plug to my computer out of the socket, causing my computer to powerdown, of course. This isn't the first improper powerdown, but for some reason, my desktop won't load anymore.
Everything starts off fine. I am running Linux 5.0.59 which I am told is also called Five-0?! I have a Mirus computer but I'm not really sure of all the specifications, as I bought it from a friend. I had it checked out by the tech guys at my college and they were rather impressed. I know there's a Sempron AMD processor. But I was also told that this shouldn't matter with a problem like this.
My computer loads on the usual blue screen giving me the option to
1 run Linspire 5.0.59 on /dev/hda1
I have chosen Redetect and Diagnostics out of curiousity, but nothing seems to be wrong. Both run a long line of text that I do not understand, ending with red text that says 'Detect script /etc/devices/det_order/D05detect_modules
When I run startup as usual, I get the light blue Linspire screen with a status bar at the bottom. The bar fills about 25% of the way and freezes. I have left the machine on for hours and there's no further progress.
Would booting with the original Linux CD affect anything?
