I have a Dell laptop on which I have installed Windows 7 . I want to install Ubuntu 13.04 on a separate partition. When I start installation, after some time, my Laptop automatically shutdown and installation remains on the half way point. However, windows runs smoothly without any problem.

I am unable to figure out the problem . Is this a problem related to the Hard Drive? Or something related to file-system?.

Thanks in Advance!

There may be two possible causes: 1. Your bootable CD/DVD/USB have some errors and 2. It may be because of heating problem –  Saurav Kumar Sep 3 '13 at 9:26
