It's ofcourse really hard to say what the problem is. Does it happen with Ubuntu as well as with Suse Linux? What version of VirtualBox are you using, and what version of Ubuntu and Suse? And what is your host operating system? Did you install the VirtualBox guest additions?

Ubuntu version 10? I think you are missing part of the version number, it is always two parts - the two digit year and the month. Thus in 2010 Ubuntu release 10.04 and 10.10.

I've been using Ubuntu in VirtualBox for years without any issues. How do you have your VM configured? Any changes to the default settings? What memory size are you using (and how much RAM is on your physical PC?)

Hmmm!

Ubuntu 10.04
I have allocated 1.7 GB RAM for Ubuntu , No changes to Default Setting.

how much RAM is on your physical PC : 4.40 GB

Try reducing the VM memory size to 1GB, that should be plenty for Ubuntu (that's what I have mine set to).

One more question - did you install Ubuntu yourself or did you grab a pre-configured VM with Ubuntu always installed? If the latter, I recommend installing your own copy. (Actually, you might consider doing that anyway and see if the new VM has the same issues. If not, you can always mount the old VM's virtual disk to the new VM to get at your data.)

I have installed ubuntu , i don't grab a per-configured VM with Ubuntu. I guess you might have done like that not me.

I would still try recreating a new VM and re-installing. Perhaps the VM image is corrupted.

By the way, I always install from scratch, doesn't take that long.

Hi Arun,

Just out of curiosity, have you tried any other distro on VM? I mean, is this generic issue, or only occurs for Ubuntu?

Also, is this your first time with VM, or you've used it before?

So your Ubuntu VM used to work just fine and now it is broke? Could be an update that went awry. Recreating is still the best option (and you would have been running long time ago),
