My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?
I downloaded Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 LTS from the Ubuntu website and ran the windows installer. It seems like the install completed successfully but when I tried to boot into Ubuntu I just get a blank screen after I select Ubuntu (as opposed to windows). I am guessing my display configuration is not supported but I'm not sure. Is there a way to have the windows installer get the correct drivers for me? I tried a redhat CD and had the same issue.
I have an Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 v2 and I am using the HDMI output to go to a samsung display.
I used an easy sbf linux boot cd to flash an andriod phone and it did not have any problems displaying the simple text in the console mode.
