Today i installed the ubuntu system and everything went well.

When the computer restarted and I chose linux, it showed me just a purple screen and nothing else; just a blank purple screen.

Now, I don't know what to do with it, how to un-install it or how to make it work.

Actually to uninstall it, you simply override Ubuntu, such as reinstalling Ubuntu on that partition, installing another OS, delete the partition, or reformat the partition. Frequently reinstalling Ubuntu solves my problem.


boot with a live cd, run gparted and delete/format partition

    here you have all you need to create a bootable flash pen ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download, just go to step 2, select USB stick and your host OS (ubuntu or windows) – Remus Rigo Apr 6 '12 at 7:36
