hi guys,

i downloaded the 64bit version of ubuntu and was trying to boot and install.

but after i selected install (or 'start installation'.. or something like that..)

my computer screen just stop there and nothing happened.every time, no warning, no error, just stuck there...

my hardwares are:
CPU: intel p7370
RAM: 4G
HDD: 250G
and that's a thinkpad(T-400,2767MC6...), so i guess it has some other hardwares which i dont know...

Don't bother with a DVD version of Ubuntu.
Get the 64bit Ubuntu live CD from here:
http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download
Then see this for how to burn the iso image to a CD:
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto
Be sure to burn the CD at the slowest possible speed.
Then when you boot from the CD, first run the option to check CD for Defects: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/CDIntegrityCheck If the CD check reports no errors then the CD is valid and can be used to install Ubuntu.
And welcome to the Ubuntu forums!
