1) Burned Ubuntu 10.10 to a disk, When tried to install (Select Install Ubuntu) screen goes blank with dim backlight and a blinking cursor on top. Same thing happens with Try Ubuntu without installing..
2) Tried on Lenovo T410 and Dell 1330. issue exactly remains the same.
3) Tried it on a VM Worksation 6.0, "This kernel requires an x86-64 cpu but only detected an i686 error is popping up". So thought its a Ubuntu x32 and x64 bit, compatibility, hence downloading the 64 bit now. Will burn and check it later.
