I tried installing Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 Server Edition on my Presario SR1910NX (Specs (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=c00680695&jumpid=reg_R1002_USEN))
So I installed it with GRUB and after installing it just showed a black screen after showing a thing or two on the command line. Than I tried installing Ubuntu 10.04.1 I386 Server Edition with GRUB and it showed GRUB and than, once again, a black screen.
Anyone got any suggestions?

you can erase the mbr of the drive using rescue disk mode and then reinstall the os.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=440 count=1

will make the basic thing you need without erasing the partitioning stuff.
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/hda bs=512 count=1

will give you full mbr erasing and also will make your partitioning "blank".

That won't fix the problem.

Sounds like it doesn't like your video card.

well you are right about the screen thing.
but i dont now what exactly the computer shows and what not.
if you can get into rescue mode and change the graphic settings for grub it could help a lot.
(sorry if i got you the wrong direction im humen and sometimes im off the hook)
