view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – So I am new at this, but I am a big fan of the opensource movement and want to give the ole Ubuntu a try. I have been having some problems. I have a HP dv6-6135dx. When I try and run the installiation CD, the screen goes completely black. I press F3 and turn off modeset, then restart. Then it comes to a screen and I try hitting "Try Ubuntu before Install" to see what happens. It gives me a HUGE amount of failed messages and then goes to a command prompt. I would like to get ubuntu going on my laptop and give it an honest try. Help? (Hardware)
