Hi All ,
I have HP pavilion dv6 laptop with internal SATA hard drive (hitachi HTS725032A9A364). I tried installing ubuntu in my laptop, but am not able to succeed.
I have tried to install ubuntu-11.04-desktop-amd64. mine is 64 bit processor, with 3gb ram,
any idea, i am only getting blank screen after booting ubuntu and after entering install ubuntu i get black blank screen.
I tried to install ubuntu as a application inside windows, but i am not getting it to work.
Thanks in advance....

How exactly do you install Ubuntu? Using wubi or a proper fresh install? The black screen means that your graphics card is not compatible with the xorg.conf file on Ubuntu. It's mostly related to the screen resolution - graphics card and how the system handle it.
Create a set of recovery disks before you start doing things like this. You never know when you going to need it..

Hi, I've been attempting to do the same things, I've tried it with ubuntu, and fedora, and neither will work! I have the black screen issue on this computer, do you know how to fix that?I've been trying to run it off of a dvd or flash drive but I can't get that to work either. Thanks for the help if you get this!!
