I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04 in my laptop (HP spectre 13, which is already running Windows 8.1). I'm using a USB flash drive (ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso). Before installing it, I used the option "Try Ubuntu before install" but after a few seconds the screen goes black and nothing happens. Any advice how to understand the problem and fix it? Thanks.
