Today I decided to install Ubuntu on my desktop. The installation went smoothly and I restarted my computer. Then, the computer showed the login screen, and then hanged on a solid purple screen. I waited a long time but nothing happened and I was forced to force shut down my computer. After retrying multiple times, it still didn't work. What's wrong?
Have you done a search to find if other users have had similar problems with your particular laptop when installing Ubuntu? When I've had problems with installing Ubuntu, it has usually been because of graphics driver issues.
