I have installed Ubuntu before on my old laptop, I remember it was a breeze. Now I'm trying to install it on my desktop and I am stuck.
I tried the Windows installer, when restarted and selected Linux, the PC went to black screen then shut down.
Tried with CD, I got the Ubuntu purple screen, then shut down.
It's an Intel i5 build with 8GB RAM and Asus motherboard (don't know if it makes any difference).
