View Full Version : [ubuntu] 3rd attempt to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 Help!

June 20th, 2011, 05:09 AM
I have tried to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.04 three times and I have had no success. Every time I get the blank purple screen and go through hell to get it back to a usable point. I have been reading and researching about this issue and have had no luck. I have went through the steps of the sticky at the top of the forum and got no where. Can someone please look at my hardware listed below and get me some insight or a different route?

Graphics card: Nvidia GeForce 9500 GS
Here is a link to my exact computer info: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01465973&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&key=null&product=3740326

as you know, there are lots of people with the purple screen syndrome.

will the live cd run without installing?

if yes, then you may need the proper driver after install.
