Hi All
I have a Dell Inspiron 3800 laptop with a 30 GB HD; every distro of Ubuntu I have tried to install on the HD fails or makes the laptop crash.

With my latest attempt, using Lubuntu 11.04, I was able to boot to the live CD, but I keep running into some form of system crash; I have over 256 MB of Ram on it, so it should not be a RAM issue according to the documentation.

Any thought?:popcorn:

Have you checked the CD at boot time? Hit return when the first screen appears, choose language than go to the Check CD Media, or however it is called. That will tell you if there are any errors on the CD.

You can also check the md5sum of the lubuntu-11.04.iso file, which should be-
