I'm trying to do a clean installation of ubuntu 12.10 in my desktop computer. I have an Ati/Amd hd 6450

I tried the live-cd and it worked well so i proceed with the installation. It finished ok.

and when log in ok too But when do update and upgrade the kernel from defual one 3.5.0-17 to latest one and reboot screen keeps blinking with only one multicolor line at the top. and try to install version of kernel but face same problem only this kernel boot perfect (3.5.0-17 to 3.5.0-21) any veriosn make problen and tried to download latest version of kernel from kernel.org (3.7.1) same problem too happened

so I remove this distro and install the long term support is 12.04 but this version make same problem in first boot
