This question already has an answer here:

Yesterday I was so excited to see new release. After creating live USB I was not able to boot it.

I have disable UEFI to legacy and selected USB as boot option to my dell laptop, and I can only see Black screen after Dell Logo for rest of night.

I have Dell Inspiron i7, 16GB Ram 2GB Nvidia and SSD.

P.S. Note I can boot Fedora 20 Live USB with same configuration :(

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I had the same issue with my HP laptop. Not sure if its the same problem or not, but try turning the Screen Brightness up. For some reason Ubuntu sometimes boots with brightness all the way down.
