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

I have a computer with the following configuration:

  • AZUS Sabertooth Motherboard
  • Intel I5 2500 CPU
  • Windows 7 installed

I'm trying to install linux. I first attempted to install pin guy. I burned the ISO, booted from it, got the initial menu; attempting to either run the live version from DVD, or install to system. However the process stops at a blank screen with the blinking cursor in left corner.

So I downloaded Ubuntu and got the same results. Then I tried wubi and ended up in the same position.

EDIT: UEFI might be part of the problem? Based on the link below I have determined that the process will be too time consuming and or risky so I'm giving up.
