Okay I'll try to do that..not sure how to do it but I'll google it I guess.

How do I reinstall the grub exactly? *and how do I even access it? As said before the CTRL alt keys don't work.

Okay...I haven't updated my computer in a long time. This is completely irrelevant to my question. Why would I ask something that happened 5 years ago, completely illogical. LIKE I said, this computer isn't good with fixing the date and time ok.

I was fixing my network using the gconf command and right after I did that I couldn't shut down or restart my computer on the desktop, so I turned it off manually. Now when my computer boots it shows a black screen like in the pic provided (without the system error window)

some info that I saved before the black screen:

[user@localhost ~]$ uname -a

[user@localhost ~]$ cat /etc/*release

* I haven't used this netbook (Acer Aspire One) in a long time until this week. My apologies that the date and year in the command line info provided throws you off.

2014-02-24 19:00:15 -0600 asked a question Having trouble installing Netbeans for Linux (Fedora)
[user@localhost ~]$ cd Downloads
[user@localhost Downloads]$ sudo chmod +x netbeans-*
audit_log_user_command(): Connection refused
chmod: cannot access `netbeans-*': No such file or directory
[user@localhost Downloads]$ sudo chmod +x netbeans-7.4-javase-linux.sh
audit_log_user_command(): Connection refused
chmod: cannot access `netbeans-7.4-javase-linux.sh': No such file or directory

I tried chmod +x <file_name_here> and that didn't work either. It would just keep saying "no such file or directory."</file_name_here>

Here is some info:

 [user@localhost ~]$ uname -a 
 Linux localhost 2.6.23.9lw #104 SMP PREEMPT Sat Jun 21 19:53:40 EDT 2008 i686 i686

UPDATE: My computer went on the "black screen of death" so I won't respond to answers since I can't do those things at the moment.
