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

I tried to install the latest version, I think it was 13.4. Now I'm trying the previous version.

It crashes every time. Not really error messages as much as it will freeze or crash during installation. Today it did something different, it crashed and went to a black screen with white letters. I tried to take a picture but it went away too quickly.

Is is possible it is not compatible with my hardware?

What error messages are you getting if any? How are you installing? Which Ubuntu release are you installing? –  Mitch Sep 26 '13 at 19:03

Probably not. Could you share your PC specs? –  user196417 Sep 26 '13 at 19:10

Just wanted to let every one know after about a week of jacking with it as soon as I posted it installed. Thank you all for such prompt responses –  Kyle Sep 26 '13 at 19:24

This is also a shot in the dark, but consider downloading from a different mirror site, checking the checksum of the file, and burning to a new dvd/cd at a slower rate.

Also, never neglect to check your actual hardware ex. http://www.memtest86.com/
