I am new at Linux operating systems. I have installed the latest version of Ubuntu 10.10 desktop edition on my laptop while still in Windows. I then rebooted and chose Ubuntu. It starts to load and it loads a little while and the screen goes blank. Like it stops loading in the system and nothing happens. I do not need it for games or such. Just to listen to music and for presentations and such things. Could it do something with my laptop? Its a Gericom laptop Intel Celeron processor 1300 Mhz 480MB of RAM.

Try a stable Ubuntu release. Currently it is Ubuntu Lucid (10.04).
And since your laptop only has a limited amount of RAM, perhaps you want to try an Ubuntu Remix, which is targeted at such machines (e.g. Xubuntu or Lubuntu).
