I tried installing from the live dvd, but the screen won't show anything. I went to 'try without installing', the cursor blinks for a while, and then the screen goes blank. Afer a while, I can hear the starting music, but there's still no display.
I went to 'install ubuntu', but the same thing happens: the cursor blinks for a while, then the screen goes blank.
Then, I installed it inside Windows. When i went to Ubuntu in the boot loader, again the same thing happens!
I've used the same DVD to install it in another laptop (Acer Aspire), and it's working fine. So, i guess it's nothing wrong with the DVD.
