Hi Mark.. This is the options that come up:
(1) Ubuntu this option just creates a blank screen which hangs
(2) Advanced options
(3) Memory test (memtest 86+)
(4) Memory test (memtest 86+) serial console 115200
(5) Windows recovery Enviroment
(6) Windows 77 (loader)
From advanced options i have the following options:
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.19.0-58 generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.19.0-58 generic (recovery mode)
The above messages are repeated except for 0-58 I get 0-56, 0-51, 0-49, 0-25
If I select the first boot option line as above, my screen blanks and the laptop just hangs. If I select the same option but with recovery mode
I get a scrolling screen of data which ends in the request for a login, which returns Login incorrect!
I don't have the USB ubuntu boot program..it got wiped by mistake a while back.
