I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a Acer Aspire V6 laptop with Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 using a USB drive from Kingston. Booting from the USB I can see the purple screen for a few seconds then the screen goes black. I can still hear the Ubuntu login sound just no display.

Version trying to install: Ubuntu 13.10

What can be causing this/how can I fix it?

Thank You.

Try to simply increase the brightness through the keyboard.

In my new HP Envy 15 with Ubuntu the screen goes black at every start up, but if I increase the brightness through the keyboard everything goes back working

Will it be a problem that I have EUFI and Secure Boot on while running the install? – user214837 Nov 11 '13 at 23:36
