    Open /boot/grub/menu.lst file and add acpi=off at the end of kernel line.
    Press Alt+F2 and type this
    Code:
    gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    It will open menu.lst file in Gedit with root privileges.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Basic commands are same in all Linux Distros. Execute this
    Code:
    sudo fdisk -l
    sudo is for gaining root privileges.
