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

After having several issues with Vista I installed ubuntu today. All went well, then it asked to restart, now there is nothing. First the red/orange screen comes up with no writing then goes blank (dark) makes a little sound thingy and that is it.

What am I doing wrong?

Oh and it is a Hp laptop... I really need this sorted, please help..

Try booting the installation medium (you did not specify it, CD or USB) in "just test it, no install" mode and report back here. –  xaccrocheur Nov 14 '13 at 12:45
