Hello, I start saying I'm a newbie in the Ubuntu/Linux world.
I'd like to get rid of Windows XP and install Xubuntu to be able to use my 2004 desktop again (Intel Celeron 2.6GHz, 991MB RAM, SiS 650 Graphic Card).
I downloaded, burned the Xubuntu 13.10 iso on a DVD (I cannot boot from USB) and verified its integrity. Every time I boot it, it loads the screen where i can set some options (language etc.), but whenever i launch the live or the installation process, after some loading showing the Xubuntu logo, the screen goes black, then i can see and move a mouse cursor, then black screen, then cursor again and so on, the process gets stuck on this loop.
I searched the forum, tried the nomodeset option, acpi, i can access the terminal typing ctrl-alt-F4, but the problem is still there.
I guess this is due to my video card and my monitor trying to set the resolution (I have an LG LCD HDTV connected on VGA).
Any help on solving this problem would be really appreciated!
