Hey all, I'm still new and learning so be easy on me :)

I've got a toshiba A135 series. I installed 9.10 from a live cd, and the installation process went fine.

When I rebooted the computer, it loaded up giving me the option to select one of the following:

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (recovery mode)
Memory text (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)

I chose the first one, hit enter and the computer went to a black screen with the cursor up in the top left corner blinking away. Then nothing.

I've read that this distribution is giving folks a lot of trouble. Has anyone had this same thing happen to them after a clean install?

First question - how was it running when you tried it in "Try without altering my computer" option on the LiveCD ? Were your graphics, etc... okay ?
