Hello all in the Ubuntu community. I am a first time poster, though I have been lurking around for months.

I am sorry if this issue has been addressed before, but I need some help.

I just bought a new computer, a Toshiba satellite a505-s6005 with an i3 processor and 4 GB of RAM (link http://laptops.toshiba.com/laptops/satellite/A500/A505-S6005). I wanted to install Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit version) on it, but it was giving me a black screen with some writing on it every time I tried to boot it from the CD. I did manage to finally activate the installation process, by choosing the


function on the installation menu. I was going fine until I at the very end I got some I/O error and when it rebooted, it gave me the same black screen with writing on it. It does this every time I try to go into Ubuntu. Any help would be appreciated. =(
