I have been trying to install Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS onto an old XP Pro SP AcerPower machine. After installing, I get a blank screen.

Sometimes it shows a log in, but it disappears after I try to enter info and doesn't come back.

A full spec of the used hardware would be nice! –  ortang May 30 '13 at 15:43
Booting from the CD (or USB drive) drop into Terminal and run lspci to see your installed hardware. The info on the video card is what's needed to start attempting an answer. Edit your post with that info please. –  douggro May 30 '13 at 15:46
