I have a new work computer and have been given the option to use Ubuntu, I have used it a small amount before so know my way around however I am having some issues trying to run it with the hardware that I currently have.

When I boot the PC I just get a black screen and nothing changes....

I installed Ubuntu via my laptop at home as I don't have much time whilst at work...

Does anyone know of any issues that may occur... I read up online somewhere and it said that if I run lshw that I would be able to view the installed hardware. The only way I am able to do this is by booting Ubuntu via the OS disk.

Is there any chance someone can have a look at my hardware and see if they can give me any pointers or if anyone knows of any issues that have arisen with any of the hardware that I currently utilize.

Below is the output from the terminal:

I would suggest that you try to boot with the nomodeset option:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1613132

This should enable you to boot into the liveCD and perform the installation. Just remember that this option won't be carried over to the installed system, so you would have to apply it again when you boot from the installed system.

I am wondering to what machine the hardware specs belong that you have posted. I thought that you would be unable to boot into Ubuntu.
