I bought a Dell Inspiron N7110 and wanted to try Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit LiveUSB on it. I managed to boot from the USB, for a while (I saw the Ubuntu circle at the bottom of the screen), but then I only saw a blinking cursor on the black screen, that eventually froze completely. Then the laptop fan started to sound more and more and I was forced to shutdown.
I tried burning the same image of Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit to a CD and to boot from it. This worked as it should, with no problems, and I was able to explore the Live Session.
Does anyone knows what might be the cause of the problem that is preventing me from booting a Live USB from this laptop?
I have tried to boot from the same USB on my HP desktop computer and it worked perfectly.
