My computer was working just fine until I changed my monitor.
I am now using an LG tv as a monitor (for work reasons, I was perfectly happy with my six year old 19" monitor.
Anyhow, now when I boot up my computer it is a bit of a crap shoot.
Sometimes it works just fine, but other times it won't boot.
It gets hung up on the splash screen before it normally states "booting system", long before the splash screen changes to the one where the icons appear across the bottom.
Turning off the computer and restarting it does not solve the problem, it hangs at the same place again.
I did a search of the forums but it seems the other threads dealing with booting problems appear different as they hang at a point much further along then I ever get.
When this happens I turn off the computer and restart it, this time when I get to grub I hit F3 and select Safemode, then I change the grub entry text from "splash to verbose" (sorry but I don't remember all of the text) and it boots just fine.
I am running KDE and my system is fully up to date.
When I switched monitors I used PCLinuxOS Control Center to update the monitor settings (I even manually entered the Horizontal and Vertical refresh rates). It said a proprietary NVidia driver was available and I choose to use it (my video card hasn't changed and so the NVidia driver shouldn't have changed either).
Any ideas what is happening and why?
Or more importantly, how to fix it?
As always I will greatly appreciate any help that you may give.
