I Hadn't loaded my video driver yet so I booted in safe mode, loaded video driver then rebooted normally and PRESTO!
I was good to go ( maybe just luckey)I, too had my XP PC Shutting down at odd times .
Ubuntu is probably the most popular Linux distribution.
Although it is never my first choice (that would be Free BSD or Red Hat), Ubuntu is superb at working "out of the box", so I often end up using it, as the other distributions all have issues.
Under the “System Failure” box there will be a checkbox saying “Automatically Restart”. Next time the system has a failure it will show the Windows error blue screen (also known as BSOD, Blue Screen of Death) and it will have an error code, grab a piece of paper and write this code down.
Before making any registry modifications, ensure that you have a current and valid backup of the registry and the virtual machine.Ubuntu 14.04.1 is a major "LTS" version, where LTS is "long term support".The download page states that 14.04 (aka "Trusty Tahr") comes with "five years of security and maintenance updates, guaranteed." Alas, the page fails to mention the release date, which was July 24, 2014.When a new version of Ubuntu comes out, the OS will keep nagging you until you upgrade.I finally found a block of time in which I could survive without my laptop, and started the upgrade process.
