View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot Install Ubuntu

June 25th, 2008, 06:06 AM
A while back I downloaded 7.10. I've finally got around to trying to install it, but am having trouble.

My system specifications are: Intel E8400 CPU (It's 64 bit), nVidia 8800GTX, 780i mobo, and 4GB of RAM.

I downloaded the 7.10 for 64-bit AMD and Intel systems.

The problem I'm having is this: I boot from the CD and come to the selection screen. I choose "Install" and get nothing. I hear I'm supposed to see a loading screen with a progress bar, but I just get a blank monitor. The same thing happens if I do the "safe graphics" installation. The CD drive is reading the disk, and the monitor doesn't go to power savings, so I think it's working, I just cannot see it. Is it not compatible with my video card?

I think its probably a graphics issue with your video card. Maybe the alternate install cd would work. Or you could try Hardy Heron which should have the ability to install with your video.

1) Did you go down to 'Check CD for Errors'?

2) What is your graphics card?
