I custom built a desktop PC today, and I'd like to run ubuntu 15.10 on it. It boots up, then right when I start to see unity desktop, I get a white, unresponsive screen (no mouse showing or anything). Upon further inspection, I realized that I get basically the same problem when running Linux Mint. I also realized that ubuntu server can get up and running just fine. I created a windows installation disk, and ran that as well. I found that I can run that just fine. So it must be a linux thing.
The components that could be the source of the problem are used in my PC are: Intel Core i5-6600 (Processor) Asrock B150 Gaming K4 ATX LGA1151 (Motherboard) MSI Radeon R7 370 2GB (Video Card)

So I'm basically thinking that there is an incompatibility between my GPU (graphics card) and Linux.
Any info is much appreciated, THANKS UBUNTU!
