View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intel T4500 labtop install

June 6th, 2011, 05:15 AM

New to these boards and thought I'd try my luck w/ Ubuntu for a strictly school/work labtop. I created an install disc and booted from it.

But nothing appears it's just a black screen, I have to restart everything to get anything done.

Labtop is a Acer Aspire 5736z-4427 with a Intel T4500 processor. Now I know it is not 'officially' listed as a certified notebook, is that the reason why it's not running the disc?

Or should I try re-burning a disc and try again? I'm trying to install Ubuntu's latest version btw.

More information provided, I have tried multiple disc, and I also verified the disc works by using it on my desktop.

Also it's not a complete black screen, I can see the install menu just ever so slightly. Kind of like someone completely turned off the brightness or something.

Anyone have any suggestions at all?

Hi, welcome to the fora.

How does it work in a 10.10 live boot?
