Greetings.

I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 via wubi. Upon booting into Ubuntu, the display crashes, and I have to hard power it down. It boots into Windows 7 just fine.

The graphics adapter is an ATI Radeon Xpress, driver version 8.561.0.0.

I was planning on testing Ubuntu on my laptop, and possibly migrating to it on my main computer as I get comfortable with it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards.
