I installed ubuntu 12.10 along side my Windows 7. When it was done installing I restarted the computer and chose ubuntu from the boot loader and now when I goes to the purple screen with Ubuntu logo and the dots under it, it just gets stuck there... I've left it alone for a long time and still nothing. Any one got any ideas I can try? Thanks in advance.

How long, and how did you install? – etsr Oct 28 '12 at 20:39
Did you install it with Wubi or with a normal installation? – Addison Montgomery Oct 28 '12 at 20:48
I installed with a Cd and with a normal install. – Jacob Oct 28 '12 at 21:28

hold the Enter key until you see some any change, I have a similar problem and resolve it, I think is a problem with the ahci mode, but I have more than a year without try to solved it.
