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

I just replaced Windows with Ubuntu 12.04. It installed correctly, but but when I tried to restart the computer to run of the hdd instead of my usb, the OS didn't boot. A message came up on my monitor saying "Change resolution to 1920x1080 - 60Hz". Can anybody help? I am very inexperienced with this.

How much time did you give it at this screen? – hexafraction Sep 30 '12 at 20:38
it stays there forever – Zach Sep 30 '12 at 20:39
I'll dupe this to the canonical black-screen question, as it is similar(except for how your monitor handles it). By the way, what graphics card and monitor are you using? – hexafraction Sep 30 '12 at 20:43

Try installing another boot-splash it replaces the dots with a ubuntu sunrise

Okay, I ran a boot repair, and it's working now.

Only difference is that the boot screen is black, instead of the traditional maroon and orange thing.

There are 4 dots instead of 5, and they're white and yellow. Why is this?

Graphics card is NVidia GEforce 6150 SE

Monitor is HP 2310m
