My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?

I have a HCL ME laptop with the following hardware specifications: Intel dual core T4200 @2.00GHz, 3GB RAM, Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce 8200M G, OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

When I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 through a CD/USB drive, it will boot from start menu and after the welcome screen, it only shows me a cursor and nothing else.

Please help me out. Is it possible to install Ubuntu in my laptop or not?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

First try refreshing your GUI by typing (CTRL+ALT+F7). If this doesn't work then try updating your computer from the TTY console. You can get to that by pressing (CTRL+ALT+F1). Login in with your username and password, then type

sudo apt-get update --fix-missing

This should fix any missing dependencies on your computer. When you are done, type

sudo shutdown -r now

to reboot your machine.

If any of this doesn't work, reinstall your LiveCD and reinstall Ubuntu.

Good Luck!
