View Full Version : [ubuntu] Laptop wont turn on after install

October 5th, 2010, 07:28 PM

I've today installed Ubuntu on to my old laptop, its still a decent spec.

Installation seemed to be going well, I selected to delete my old hard disk information and install from scratch.

I was them prompted with the restart screen, however, this is where things started to go wrong, it gave me lots of errors and wouldnt restart, so I turned it off myself and tried to turn it back on, now, upon turning on, I just get a blank screen, no BIO's, nothing.

Power light is on, HDD light is solid and charging light is also on.

Can you boot from the Ubuntu live CD, and try another installation?
