i am having problems installing ubuntu. i am and have been attempting at installing the latest version of ubuntu from my windows pc.
i've already burned the os on a dvd and EVERYTHING went as planned because in fact i installed ubuntu on another computer, same cd, version, etc and i used it fine--actually i removed windows xp off of that computer and used ubuntu as the main os.manufacturer: acer
model: aspire 5336
processor: intel(r) celeron(r) cpu 900 2.20 ghz 2.19 ghz
system type: 64-bit operating system
however on my laptop it wont do the same. you see, when i put the disk in and restart, it shows the purple loading screen and then the screen just goes black...any suggestions?
edit: i must cut the power off of the lap top in order to reboot the computer and go back to windows. if i choose ubuntu, it will do it again.
if anyone preparing to reply in regards to my problem and needs any other information not supplied in this thread, please do ask.
