This question already has an answer here:
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?
