Hey uh I have been using Chrome OS for several months now and have recently been experiencing some bugs. At first it was just my sound was buggy, when I left my computer on too long the sound would bug out and jump around in what I was listening to and then repeat the same sound for several seconds before jumping again and repeating again and so on and so forth. I didn't think much of it because all I had to do was restart my computer and the problem would be temporarily fixed. Yesterday my sound started bugging out so I restarted my computer and when I logged back on and reopened what I was doing all my workstations had collapsed into the top one and I couldn't move or resize windows, also the bar across the top of the windows with the minimize maximize and quit buttons had disappeared. I thought it would be a simple fix to restart my computer but it was to no avail so I decided that I would just reinstall the OS until I can afford to get a new computer. When I went to run my Live Disk when it was going through the coding at the start up it asked my for a "linux login" I have no idea what the login is or could be. When I type something in as the login it then asks for a password and it won't let me type anything. I don't know what the login could possibly be I've tried my username on the computer I've tried Admin I've tried root I don't know what else to try if someone could help I would really appreciate it.

What version of Chromium OS are you using? Do you still have Chromium installed on your computer because we could try and fix your issues if you want, or is reinstall what you are shooting for now.

I have no idea what version I'm using it has wine on it if that helps, I think I updated it 2ish months ago but I'm not sure of exactly when I got it. I downloaded it from Download Chrome OS Linux RC & beta but as I said it was a while ago so don't know version number. I want to just run the live disk to reinstall it, but it keeps asking me for a linux login which I don't know.
