Ok, builders shut of the power and though I have ups's on Joshua they didn't seem to work, all my other servers shutdown and booted up perfectly.
Basically Joshua boots up, until it gets to where you would normally see the nvidia splash screen and then login. But instead you get a black screen and at the bottom in white text(I have put in text as I don't have a diamond or pie or square icon on my keyboard:
<- -..MI="diamond icon"L}"Pie Icon".I"Square Icone" m-
Now I have tried ctrl alt F2 for console and it just sits there and does nothing. All services are up and running students can get to thier work if its on Joshua and I can get to all of his shares.
He is running MDK 10 ....I know I know I should update, but when something works it works!! and in a school you tend not to get the time to update all the time. My gut feeling is to check Sal to make sure he has backed up correctly and start again, but it is such a problem as it means yr 9 and 10 will have no work.
I really think this is the end as I can't get a console...unless I use the MDK boot disk?!?
