    Fresh Install Crashes. Driver Issue? What Do I Do Next?

    I installed Linux Ubuntu 12.10 as a dual boot to my HP Pavilion Slimline s7700n running Windows Vista. I started by shrinking the Vista partition natively. I then restarted with the disc and installed. But when I tried to boot into the new Linux partition, I got this following error...

    I'm told this is a video driver error. Does anyone know what I might do to correct it? I haven't tried simply reinstalling, but if that's what it takes...

    Mar Komus ; Hi !

    Looks probable to be graphics related.
    When you boot up, you get a grub boot menu for which operating system you want to boot. In this menu is an option "recovery mode"; Arrow down to the entry and press enter -> recovery console, in this recovery console choose "resume normal boot:. Can you now boot to the desk top (perhaps degraded, ok) ?
    If you have got to this point, you will now install a graphics driver.
    On the left side of the screen is the "launcher" -> System Settings -> Software Sources(from top task bar menu options) -> Additional Drivers (tab in Software Sources) ..... install the recommended driver.

    hope this works for you
