Hey guys,
Have been trying out ubuntu on a second machine and quite like it Since I have some unpartitioned space on my main pc I thought i'd try it out on there.

Downloaded and verified a fresh 8.10 x64 copy - running it in livecd mode it boots ok to the login screen but it won't let me login! Tried the following combinations -

Ubuntu/ (blank)
ubuntu / (blank)
ubuntu / ubuntu
Ubuntu / Ubuntu

No joy at all, it won't let me in Any ideas how to get around this?


P.S I have downloaded the i386 32bit version instead to try, but that won't even get me to the login screen - I get no video signal.
