Could you please provide us with some more information?

How did you install Ubuntu, with a LiveCD or via Wubi?

What are your computer specs., e.g. model, RAM, graphics card etc.

The more you tell us, the better we can help you.

I am assuming this means you installed with Wubi:

Do you have an Ubuntu CD or could you get hold of one?

Perfect!

Once you have it burned to CD boot the computer (if needs be set BIOS to boot from CD) and choose the option to try Ubuntu rather than installing it.

Then, click on the link at the bottom of my post and follow the instructions there.

Post the results back here and we will see what can be done to help you resolve this.

Did you place the script on the Desktop?

Then:


sudo bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh

This is a simple script, no installation required on the LiveCD.

If the above command does not work, try this:


su bash ~/Desktop/boot_info_script*.sh
