This is VERY frustrating
After last week spending 2 days screwing around with raid, it install properly
spent the following week installing and uninstall ubuntu 12.04 alternate version
awesome! now it will load into the login screen
30 seconds later, pink screen.. okey i'll wait another minute see what happens...pink screen. (just snapped my head phones in half)
okey, let's reinstall it a few more times with different boot options
i915.modeset=0 .. or 1
neither worked, and now my keyboard is semi-functional
honestly, it's not my fault my computer isn't ancient, and it's not my fault I don't know how to fix it, why can't there be more options to perhaps download the drivers for the video card during installation, or perhaps default BOOTUP to boot in an all-round acceptable interface to the desktop until the user installs the video card??
anyway, if anyone has any other bright ideas, my specs are as follows...
GTX560 nvida geforce
and.. I cannot boot to a command prompt because it doesnt get that far... i can go in to recovery mode into command prompt however.
it doesn't hang, i can only see movement when i type(nothing that can be seen, it's like a broken display distortion screen)
