    Hello and welcome!

    You lost keyboard and cursor, but you say you plug in USB keyboard/mouse and you're good...so what is your original keyboard / mouse...built into laptop? PS/2?

    at start it reads the undeverror is allready loaded
    What do you mean here, exactly?

    can i reload just drivers grub version 1.98 squeeze1
    You should not need to reload any drivers, unless you deleted something. Did you delete anything, particularly in /lib/modules?

    You said you are running "squeeze1", do you mean Debian Squeeze 6.x?

    Have you tried to boot into Recovery mode (assuming that is an entry at the grub prompt)? In any case, it might be worth trying to boot into runlevel 1/single user mode.

    Once you are in, check /var/log/syslog or dmesg for interesting output.

    thanks for reply, as you can see iam new too linux, i have a presario 700 laptop,debian works almost flawless, on the grub boot i can see a fail in on the boot screen, says undeverro is already running and gives a code like 915 or 951 almost different every time. please be patient with me iam used too ms windows and do not know a lot of computer lingo,when the cursor and keyb freezes i have to un plug usb mouse and kb then repug usb then they work but keypad and kb on laptop are still locked, may have accidentally deleted something , running squeeze 1.98 i believe will nedd too reboot to check, i tried recovery mode but iam lost i need some one too walk me through ,i have a desktop i can use while working on laptop, see the part about using single user iam lost, i can get too recovery mode and grub, got one message to go to xorg.com please try to reply thanks anthony

    Hi,

    I believe your udev problem is discussed on this Debian bug report:

    http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=624469

    Attempt to follow the steps suggested there to further troubleshoot the problem (i.e, booting with init=/bin/bash and executing the init script manually).

    Some alternatives would be:
    • Try the previous version of Debian.
    • If you have enabled unstable in your sources, reinstall and do not use unstable when updating.
    • Try the latest version of Ubuntu (based on Debian)


    Let use know how you get on.
