After rebooting into ubuntu from the installer I discovered neither of my two monitors was able to display the login screen after the loading animation. I encoutered the same problem in the installer and ended up having to use the alternate install CD. I have tried testing the memory via the install CD, disconnecting one monitor, switching the monoitors around. I installed Ubuntu 8.10, and have a ATI Radeon HD 3850 for my graphics card. I have tried googling around a bit and searching the forums and it seems that I'm not the first one to have this problem, however most of the answers were from Ubuntu 6.10 or like the the thread below for an NVidia Card.
