Hi, I recently tried to install Ubuntu on my old desktop since I hate XP but I've run into some problems.
I downloaded the iso, burned it to a disc, and then put it in the desktop. I got through the installation fine, just installing it within Windows, and then at the end, it said I needed to reboot to finish the installation.
I rebooted, and I chose Ubuntu from the OS's. It got to the Splash screen but after that it just went black. I rebooted and tried with Safe Graphics mode with the same result.
The thing that I think might be the problem is that I am using my HDTV as a monitor and it is connected via HDMI.

If anyone has any solutions, please share them.
