This question already has an answer here:

I have a Windows 7 32 bit (Home Premium) on my HP Laptop. I decided to take the easy way to install Ubuntu and that is by using Wubi.

Having gone over a few tutorials on Wubi, I decided to let it do its task.
I let it install. I saw the Ubuntu option during boot and hence I selected it and pressed enter.

I saw the Ubuntu purple screen and then my screen went black. All the other lights in the laptop were on. The volume rocker, the wifi, power and so on. I let it sit for about 15 mins but since I did not get any response whatsoever, I had to forcefully shut it down.

Dismissing it as a fluke, I restarted the laptop and repeated the same procedure. I got the same result.

Well, what made it go wrong ?
For now, I have uninstalled it with the hope of reinstalling it once I know what went wrong.

Which Ubuntu were you using with Wubi? –  Thomas W. Sep 29 '13 at 18:18
    
@ThomasW. The one it downloads by default. –  Little Child Sep 30 '13 at 1:57
    
That doesn't answer my question. Which Ubuntu OS are you trying to load with Wubi, 12.04, 12.10, or 13.04? –  Thomas W. Sep 30 '13 at 2:40

WUBI is not supported with 13.04 and the newer versions. It's also not available with UEFI or windows 8. More here: http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/install-ubuntu-with-windows
