Hi i am very new to linux. i built a machine earlyer this week and used an 8800gt superclock as the installation graphics card but just reccently went out to buy a cheaper card for this machine, because i use the 8800 gt in my other computer. and as soon as i changed the cards i got no picture when ubuntu was loading. i have my bios screens and i all the pick operating system and that stuff i can see but as soon as i choose ubuntu it just goes black..... forever.
im sure there is some quick way to fix this. please help. thank you

We can't help without first knowing the make and model of the video card now in the machine.
