Try to set nomodeset, I had the same problem with 14.04 on an older laptop. That fixed it for me.


check out the installation guide for your platform: https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/

this also includes a section "Troubleshooting the Installation Process": e.g. https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/installation-guide/amd64/ch05s04.html


Please post the output while your system shows you the splash screen. Simply, press ESC when it shows you the splash screen and post your findings. Otherwise, it is not possible for us to help you out without knowing what is causing the problem.
