I have an ACER Aspire 5732Z Laptop, and 6 days ago I have installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop, But I found black screen in login. I have tried a lot of ways to solve this problem, but there is no way. So can you tell me which version is compatible with this ACER Aspire (5732Z)?

Detail: Intel-Pentium-processor T4400 (2.2 GHz, 800 MHz FSB), Intel-GMA 4500M, 15.6" HD LCD, 2GB Memory, 320 GB HDD, Acer Nplify(TM) 802.11b/g/n.

Thank You. ..

And finally, I found that Linux Mint is best for my ACER-ASPIRE5732Z. It is also compatible with Ubuntu codes, because as I know it is base on Ubuntu.

I found that I can use the latest version of Ubuntu 11.10 by simply hitting the Fn+Left Arrow key after the logo disappears and I see the screen turn purple.

I have gotten used to doing this. It feels like a security function now, so anyone who tries use it without my say so will get a black screen.

@ Satchit Bhogle: Hey, which version of ubuntu are you using in your Acer Aspire 5738? Because I agree with pankaj sharma, that there is a bug in my Acer Aspire 5732Z. Black Screen. I don't know what to do? Should I use another version like 10.04 or earlier?? Any suggestion?!! – Sushiant Mar 30 '12 at 11:37
