ubuntu 9.10 wont boot after I choose my language
i am trying to boot ubuntu 9.10 from a CD. i boot from the CD drive and it brings me to the screen where i choose my language. I am then brought to a screen that gives me a list like "try ubuntu without making any changes to your computer" + "install ubuntu" + "scan disc for errors" blah blah blah. i choose "try ubuntu without making any changes to your computer" to make sure its running smooth. after that it takes me to a blank screen. i waited 15 mins till i heard a tropical sound and then waited 10 more mins and still nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
im on a:
- hp Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
- Intel Core2 duo 2.2 GHz
- 4 GB RAM
