Thanks and any help would be much appreciated.
- HP Pavillion dv6 notebook: < 6 months old
- i5 processor
- dual integrated graphics
- 8 gb ram
- 750 HDD
- Currently running W7
I have a bootable USB drive 12.04.1 LTS (i know its fine, because it works with any other computer), and i need it to work on my HP notebook. I have already updated my BIOS and changed boot sequence.
I plug in the USB, and wait for my PC to read and initiate the boot. The light on the USB flickers (a good thing), but then suddenly stops (in other computer, it keeps flickering). At this point, my screen is almost fully black. No cursor, or image of ubuntu logo or even the grub. I tried entering grub: e, alt + cntl +f4, ctl + x -- everything. No response.
Also after about 6 seconds upon reaching the black screen, my laptops, fan, or something go off to quite loud: if that helps.
I read similar issues, but those atleast are able to reach grub; i cannot.
Thx, any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.
P.S: im not new to ubuntu, as i have used plenty of ubuntu 10, and had the exact same problem. It worked on everyother computer.
