I tried to install Precise from DVD media and got to the point where the Ubuntu logo is on screen indicating the the installer is loading.
At that point the screen went dark. After some time I rebooted the machine. To my dismay the machine would no longer start (Powers on but but no bios start up screen, I can hear initial hard drive spin which soon dies).
This is a new machine (less than 2 months) and I have had no previous indications of defects before this incident. In other words, I am convinced the Ubuntu install had something to do with the failure of the machine.
Has anyone else had this problem with this model machine? Is this known to happen with precise or other versions of Ubuntu?
