    Same issue here.

    I initially posedt this question in the testing section (now closed) about 10.10 RC. No real answer was attained. Still having the same iss with final release...

    Can't get past the initial dialogue on install of 10.10. Goes to black screen and I have to do a hard reboot. Same when I try using WUBI. My system recently had the video card (nVidia 9800GT) and the power source go out. Had them both replaced. I now have an ATI card. I'm going to assume this is a video card issue. Any ideas?

    It would really help if you could try and give us the whole error message and at what point in the process you see it.

    Also, although this does not really answer your question, but have you tried 10.04?

    Rubi,
    None of the links you posted helped. When I get the prompt line, the computer goes into a black screen after about 1 minute and I have to do a hard reboot to get back out.

    Also, I tried 10.4, but I could not get the wired or wireless connection to work from it. I also tried the 64-bit version (since I have a 64-bit machine), but the install failed. Can ONE of these work?

    Thanks!

    here is the problem:
    when i get the first screen either I choose "test without install" or "install"
    i get a black screen with long error message some content :
    init Tainted: G D 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu
    [ 5.609664] Call Trace:

    I get no error message at all. Just a blank, black screen like my monitor has turned off.

    Ditto for me. Just tried 10.04 same result. Tried several other distros with live CD's and the same thing happens. This must be an ATI issue in my case. So far, the only distro to boot a live CD has been Katonix. All Ubuntu variants have gone to black screen, a few non-Debian based distros have also gone black.

    I think as soon as I can afford it, I'll be heading back to nVidia.
