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

so I just installed Ubuntu on my Laptop and the installation went reletively okay. But when I bought Ubuntu from Grub I get the usual Ubuntu startup splash screen and it then just stays on that screen. I can here a bongo login sound, but the screen doesn't change. I've ran a live version of my USB pen and that works fine. Does anybody have an idea how to fix this? It's running alongside Windows 8 and I've run Boot repair from the live run.
