I have an HP G4-1387 which has two graphics cards, an ATI 7450M and Intel HD3000.

I tried to install Ubuntu and run it from my USB stick, I get the usual black, console like screen showing a lot of things in an small resolution, then the screen adjust the resolution and then it is suppose to start Ubuntu or installation but instead I get a black screen forever. I think is related to a graphics card driver problem.

Any idea how to solve it? Thank you

  1. get an ubuntu .iso image.
  2. use any program to write the iso to your usb drive
  3. reboot through your usb drive
  4. you will get a screen having title ubuntu
  5. select install on hard drive
  6. follow the steps of installation
  7. reboot, this time ubuntu on your bootloader.

I know how to install Ubuntu the problem is that I can't because I get a black screen before installation starts. – Andres Sep 17 '12 at 9:40

Ok I solved it. The screen was black because it has no bright at all by pressing the bright buttons you can see the screen.
