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

Every time I try to start my VM in VirtualBox, I just get a black screen. SOMETIMES, I get to the login screen, where it asks me to choose a user. But after that screen, all I ever get is a black screen and some Ubuntu errors.

My host machine is Windows 7 64 bit. Please help, I have been trying to get this to work for 20 hours now.

We'd need at least the errors you get, and the settings for your Ubuntu guest to see if we can help or not. –  Takkat Jan 3 at 17:24
