View Full Version : [ubuntu] User/Password

November 9th, 2008, 04:48 PM
I have an HP Vista Home Prem 5 gig Ram 750 HD 64 bit machine
I'm trying to use the Live CD to test drive ubuntu
I'm stuck at the sign-on screen
everytime I try and enter a user and password I get an error

what's the initial user sign-on and password?

if I let it sign-on by itself after I think 60 seconds it comes up with a blank screen and I can't do anything but move the cursor around.

thanks for any help

Sounds like something wrong with the LiveCD because it should boot directly into Gnome window manager where you don't have to log in or type in any password. Did you check the CD for defects at the first menu after it boots up?

yes I did...
and after it checked it told me to re-boot so I re-booted and the first thing that came up was the user/password screen.

I downloaded it again and re-burned the image and it worked.
