    Ubuntu 12.10 Black Screen Installation

    I am new to ubuntu. I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my hp with: Intel i3 CPU, AMD 5000 Radeon HD Grahics I am getting a black screen after the Ubuntu's installation. I already tried the nomodeset option and the noapic option but no luck. What can I do to bypass this problem? Thanks All!

    Sorry For being a noob in ubuntu

    Welcome to UF.
    Just an idea, but instead of using nomodeset try modeset=0 (that's a zero, not a letter o)
    Add it to the kernel line leaving a space after quiet splash then type it there - ctrl+x to boot and see if anything changes
