Hi all
I'm very frustrated at the moment. Installed Ubuntu 13.04 and everything seemed to be going well until it requested a restart. I acknowledged that I wanted to "restart now". After that it went to a blank screen where it seemed to get stuck so I removed the Ubuntu load disk and pressed space bar. After that it restarted but it won't go passed the Acer start screen I have tried to push buttons with no response. Can't even get into bios. Please please help, my pc is no a brick

How did you install Ubuntu? Is there Windows 8 and UEFI in the picture?

Boot with Ubuntu DVD/USB, "Try Ubuntu without Installing". Then Install and Run Boot-Repair (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Boot-Repair#A2nd_option_:_install_Boot-Repair_in_Ubuntu). If this doesn't solve your problem then post the link to Bootinfo-Summary that Boot-Repair generates.
