    On my Dell Studio 1535, 9.04 was OK, but 9.10 and Lucid don't boot or boot very slowly. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/404899

    I don't know whether this is the same as the problem with your laptop, as your laptop is quite different from mine.

    Advice:
    1) turn off "quiet splash" in the boot options and then see at what stage the boot process stops.
    2) use another computer to boot Karmic/Lucid and create a bootable USB stick, and see if that works in your Compaq laptop.
