 +====== Mint 15 Freezes on Reboot ======
 +On some chipsets, Mint 15 completely freezes when attempting a reboot. This may be due in part to an ACPI interaction with the boot command. In order to overcome this problem, the grub configuration file **/​etc/​default/​grub** must be updated as follows:
  
 +<​code>​
 +GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="​reboot=pci"​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Modifying the parameter will force pci mode on reboot, and also turn off the annoying Linux Mint splash screen, showing important startup information.
 +
 +In order for the changes made to the grub configuration file to be applied, the following command is necessary, followed by a reboot.
 +
 +<code console>
 +sudo update-grub2
 +sudo reboot
 +</​code>​
