View Full Version : [ubuntu] Screen distorted graphics when installing

When installing Ubuntu 13.04 from a USB it looks distorted I'm not sure if the ISO I downloaded was corrupted or not, or if it's my thumbdrive..

Welcome to the Ubuntu Forums :-)

I think you have problems with the graphics driver. Try the boot option nomodeset or some of the other boot options (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions).

You can also try another version of Ubuntu. If the computer is new, try next the version (available as a beta version for testing). It might have better drivers for very new hardware.


If it is older, try the version 12.04 LTS. Consider trying also some of the other flavours of Ubuntu: Kubuntu, Lubuntu and Xubuntu.
