This question already has an answer here:
I'm having issues installing Ubuntu 12.04 on my laptop. I downloaded the ubuntu 12.04 ISO and made a bootable USB. The USB works fine on my desktop computer, but I have issues getting it to work on my laptop.
On the laptop, the Ubuntu screen comes up and it gives me options:
- Run Ubuntu from this USB
- Install Ubuntu on a Hard Disk
- Test memory
- Boot from first hard disk
- Advanced options
If I select option 1, a bunch of lines come up and then all I get is a black screen and it does nothing. When I select to install Ubuntu, all I get is the black screen. I've waited 5-10minutes and nothing happens. As I said, I have no issues running the same USB on my desktop.
My laptop specs are:
Intel Core i5-2410M (2.30GHz, Dual-Core)
750GB HDD 7200rpm
AMD Radeon HD 6630 1GB
Any ideas why this is happening?
Note: Both computers have windows 7 already installed on them.
