I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my laptop, booting from a CD. However, when click "install ubuntu" from the grub the screen goes to black. So far I've tried the following all with no result:
booting "try ubuntu"
booting with 'nomodeset'
booting with 'drm_kms_helper.poll=0'
removing all usb- and other connections from my laptop before booting
These are all the possibe solutions i have found online so far...
Here are some more specifics:
Asus R500V with Windows 8 installed
Nvidia graphics card
Does anybody know what could be the problem?
