hi all. just got a hp mini 110 netbook and installed ubuntu netbook edition. the livecd runs great, and i installed it to the hard drive. after install i get a blinking _. i can re run it from the livecd(its on a usb card). ive formatted and reinstalled 2 times. the netbook ran good with win7 i just wanted linux. hard drive and memory test under bios works fine. if you want a screen shot of the blinking _, just think of a small laptop with a _ blinking about 1 time a second. (i dont know how to take a screen shot with out and os)

have you tried updating your system once installed?
Is it just the Xserver/Xorg that blinks or do you see the same behavior in the console? (Ctrl+Alt+(1-6))
(Ctr+Alt+7 to get back to Gnome/ubuntu desktop)

Have you tried booting into "Recovery Mode"?
