I am a quite new user of Ubuntu. I am a Sr. citizen.
My system is a Pentium III, Asus CUSL-2 Mother board 512MB RAM SD
I installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a seperate HD of 20 GB using CHIP's Live DVD to install. It is successfully installed. On starting the system, it also gives booting options. If Win.XP is selected, it starts. But if Ubuntu 9.04 option is given, it starts booting, checks all parameters and gives [OK] to all but stops at "Checking battery...." it stops and after 2 to 3 flikkers the monitor screen becomes blank/dark... nothing comes on it.
