Yup, it was just the battery. Replaced it for $23 on eBay and the new one is working beautifully.

Thanks @Rmano, I just ordered a new one, hopefully it's just the battery.

comment Why do I get a purple screen whilst installing Ubuntu Server 11.04
I tried removing the wireless card and it does the exact same thing. I've added the exact specs to my original post. The PC does not have a CD drive and the universal USB installer does not seem to support the mini.iso. Suggestions?

I created a bootable USB from the .iso using the USB-Installer tool. I just put the USB drive in, booted, hit "install Ubuntu server", chose my keyboard layout, then it gets past a few loading bars and right after the "loading additional components" bar completes it goes to this screen. I can type in the bottom but that's it.
