I want to install the latest ubuntu (12.04.2 LTS) in my ultrabook asus S56C.

I tried to boot with USB & CD, but both stuck in black screen after choosing "Try Ubuntu..." or "Install Ubuntu"...

Need some help.

May be your graphics card not detected by ubuntu. Try to install after connecting external monitor.

ok, I tried to connect an external screen monitor but nothing different happened. The new screen still in standby and the laptop keep displaying black screen. :/ There is no any error or something to help me to know what is wrong :( – fliim May 18 '13 at 20:18

Here we are!

I fix this by disabling the "Secure boot" in the BIOS.
