Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I created a Linux Live USB drive and am currently using that to boot Ubuntu 13.04. I get past all the coding and get stuck at the purple screen with 5 dots for a good 10-15 minutes. Any way to fix? The reason I'm running Ubuntu right now is Windows crashed on my laptop (Dell XPS with an Intel Core I7 processor) and I'm using it as a "lifeboat" to get important files into a cloud based backup. Any help is greatly appreciated.
