well,

I have come further than I had in my previous post in this thread...
and i thought it was going to work this time.... but no go... lol

All goes fine, and I get to the point where you can " try ubuntu" or "install ubuntu".

So I choose "try ubuntu" ... and it acts like it is going to work....
the loading screen comes up.....

then, my screen goes black,
but this time.... on the top half of my monitor...
it starts blinking, with white vertical stripes going across the black screen (only top half though)..
and It just keeps doing this,

anyone else experiencing that? if so...
How does one get around that? lol
