Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I successfully installed Ubuntu 14.04. I'm having the purple screen issue however even after making the nomodeset changes. It remains stuck on a purple screen. I can navigate through the menu options i.e Ubuntu, Advanced Options for Ubuntu, Memory Test, Windows Recovery Environment and Windows 8. I can't even boot into Windows 8.

I'm totally new to this. If someone could please provide step by step instructions, that would be most appreciated.
