I have two versions of Linux Live Ubuntu. One always worked, the newer one just would not accept the router password for some reason.
Anyhow, now both versions are broke, and won't load. I get a quick purple screen, followed by quick scrolling text on black background (this part is normal so far) then much smaller text that begins with numbers. The text says all kinds of crazy stuff, as if it is a record of the files and procedures during the boot process. The last thing it says is mentioning USB devices, my mouse and my keyboard, and that's it, every minute or so it will repeat the tail end of all the text.
The only new hardware I have added to my computer is a second Nvidia GTX 660 card, I have them in SLI. Is it possible this is the problem? Like, maybe it can't figure out which graphics card to run the driver for? I didn't see anywhere in there the words “fail” referring to GPU, Graphics, Nvidia, HDMI, or PCI-E.
I have to confess I am not really Linux savvy, I only use the live Ubuntu to do my shopping and banking on (since I don't trust all the stuff I have on windows to not be logging and spying on me).
Oh and I am running both Linux Live Ubuntu's from a USB 2.0 flash drive and a 3.0 flash drive.
