    Ubuntu 10.04 Not Booting on Dell Latitude D400

    I have a Dell D400 and I am trying to run Ubuntu 10.04 via a usb stick. I loaded Ubuntu on it via the Universal Install Program. I get to the loading screen and select "Run Ubuntu from this USB", I get a whole bunch of lines and it stops right at "[ 3.880120] usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2". I leave it there and nothing happens. I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks,

    John.

    Anyone?
    Bump.

    I installed 9.10 on it successfully and then updated to 10.04, but it hangs at a blank screen at start up after updating.

    I have been having this exact same problem. Here are the full specs on the computer:

    Dell Latitude D400, 1.3 GHz PM-M extended graphics array, Integrated Intel 855GM graphics chipset.

    Considering the way it halts, I'm thinking it is a problem with the graphics.

    Ubuntu 9.10 works like a champ, though.
