I recently installed Ubuntu on my laptop. The process involved me going through about 5 discs since they all stalled while installing. By stall, i mean i would select "Install Ubuntu" and my computer would go to a black screen and stop responding. Finally, I tried writing the disc at a slower speed, and it worked and Ubuntu istallled fine. I was able to run it completely fine, I downloaded a bunch of updates and rebooted my system and everythng was fine. I shut my laptop off for the night and went to bed. I woke up this morning and now whever i select Ubuntu from the boot menu it goes to a black, unresponsive screen as it did with the failed installations of the CD. I have Vista dual installed and i can run that just fine. Any suggestions?
