Help! I'm trying to use the live cd on my HP Pavilion Entertatainment laptop, but I get a blank screen. The Ubuntu logo shows and I get to choose my language, but when I click on "Try Ubuntu without doing anything to your computer" (paraphrased) the screen goes blank. About a minute later I hear the Ubuntu music.

Probably the Live CD has trouble operating your display hardware. See if you can get it to boot in Simple Graphics mode. I think it is a choice after pressing F6 at the first menu.
