Hi,
My computer has an unknown graphics card, and it seems to be causing Ubuntu, but not WIndows 7, problems. WHen I boot from the Ubuntu CD, it shows a low-res boot screen (Just text saying Ubuntu 11.04 instead of the logo). When it gets past that screen , the screen goes blank. If I wait for the disc activity to stop, then press the power button, the shutdown cycle text does appear on the screen after it shuts down the window server. Is there any way to get the GUI to display? If not, will this suffice for Ubuntu to run:
