View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing OS - Ubuntu 12.04 Help

May 30th, 2012, 10:34 AM
Hi im new to Ubuntu never used it before. I bought a system to troubleshoot on and decided to dual boot it. Ive downloaded ubuntu 12.04 and it is on a CD correctly. I put it into my system and forced it to boot from the disk. It gets to the purple Ubuntu loading screen and then i get no signal on my monitor but the disk drive is still spinning.

Any help?

If you have nvidia sometimes it's driver issue.

You have details here how to check if this is the issue, test the live mode first, and then install if you want. Note that you will need to use the nomodeset again on first boot.
