Ubuntu won't install, freezes after certain point.
Alright, so I got another laptop today.Previously, I have installed my 6.06 version of Ubuntu on my new laptop. This laptop that I got today at an auction is a Dell Latitute with Windows Xp installed on it. I get the Ubuntu CD to boot properly but eventually, during the installation it goes to a black screen with a blinking white horizontal cursor. After it sits there a while, I see a mouse cusor pop up, then the screen turns a sort of reddish-brown color and I hear the start up sound. Eventually something pops up that is called the "Windows Manager" and thats when the mouse cursor stops moving.Eventually the screen turns completely black and I haven't got passed that.Any ideas?
