I tried to boot install Ubuntu using my laptop (without CD Drive) using a USB drive, then it goes to the boot selection menu (the one with the Ubuntu logo installation options).

I selected Install then my laptop just beeps - 1 short beep, after that it stops then nothing installs, it just stays at the installation menu, can someone please help?

Laptop Specs

  • Neo Notebook (forgot the model version)
  • 2GB RAM
  • running Win XP SP3
  • 150GB Hard Drive memory

Would really appreciate if someone helped, I just used the normal 12.04 installer.

A beep usually means that there is a hardware error. Yours looks like a RAM error but it could be something else. Why don't you take out the RAM chip, clean it and then put it again and try. Refer to your laptop manual before performing nay sort of maintenance. –  rizwaniqbal Sep 26 '12 at 12:32
