I tried to install a new 12.10 installation along side a windows installation on a Dell Dimension 4550. The install seems to be successful but after logging in the desktop is blank. I have tried some of the nvidia suggestions without success.

I see many posts with a similar problem. Is this a problem with just the 12.10 version? If I install the 12.04 version would it have a better chance to succeed? –  DaveW Nov 28 '12 at 10:57
