I think this is the right forum to be asking. Forgive me if I am wrong. I have Parted Magic 2013_08_01 on UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) and I want to use it to secure erase my SSD. My problem is that when I load Parted Magic from UBCD, my PC will enter into sleep (I can see my power light flashing steady) and after a few seconds it will wake up with only a black screen. My Asus H270F motherboard is on the latest (1205) BIOS and I have even gone as far as completely resetting the BIOS to defaults, changing no settings and Parted Magic still does this. I have tried Parted Magic on other computers and don't get the black screen "error". So I can only imagine that it doesn't like my motherboard or GTX 1050. I can't ask directly on Parted Magic's forums as you need to have bought the product. The 2013_08_01 version is the last free version and why it is no longer updated on UBCD. Being a complete Linux novice, I am completely out of my element here. I know Windows can go to sleep and wake up just fine. I just seem to have this issue with Parted Magic. Any advice will be gratefully received!
