Hey guys I have an issue here with installing ubuntu and pear OS. I have tried both from my usb and they both work fine off the flash drive. I installed them on my laptop and every time on both ubuntu and Pear OS I get to the log in screen and on Pear OS the screen is half black and I can't see any button or anything, and its pretty much the same thing with ubuntu. I have tried reinstalling them a few times recommended setting, I also tried formatting the hard drive and all that good stuff but I keep getting the same issue. My laptop is a "HP Probook 6455b". I had no issues installing ubuntu on my mac so I have installed in the past fine but I really want it on my laptop. Any help would be much appreciated! Please be clear on instructions because while I consider my self to be good with computer and stuff I don't really know linux very well, just mac and windows.

Pear OS is not supported here. Please rewrite your question as it pertains to Ubuntu as you are more likely to get an answer. Thank you! – Elder Geek Jun 15 '14 at 18:41
