View Full Version : [ubuntu] Blue screen during installation

July 23rd, 2008, 11:11 PM
I've got a relatively old computer, used to run XP. It has 512MB of RAM, Intel Celeron 2.5GHz processor. I'm going to use it as a server for my robotics team. I downloaded the server edition image file, burned it and started the installation. Every once in a while after it finishes something it will go to a blue screen with a vertical bar of black on the left hand side and a gray bar on the bottom. Usually this screen passes but I'm at the point now where it's been like that for an hour. Any help would be appreciated.

It already gone through partitioning, networking, keyboard selection, language selection and I think a few others.

I've browsed around these forums and heard about an 'alternate CD'
I am currently using the Live CD, where can I find the alternate CD image?

That must be a problem either with your video card or your monitor.
