ubuntu installation give me a black screen
 
hi

i tried installing ubuntu last night (version 6.10 i believe) both the 64amd/intel and i386 editions

my system is listed in my sig.

my monitor is connected to my 1st graphics card with a dvi cable (i also tried the analogue cable on the 2nd card just to make sure ubuntu wasnt defaulting to the 2nd card down)

i get as far as the ubuntu logo and the orange progress bar sliding across just after the installation cd screen but after that i just get a black screen with a small _ in the top left, i have left it for a while to see if anything happens but nothing does.

does ubunto not like sli or nforce systems?

thanks all for preceding advice and help

Sorry, I missed the part about installation. If you're not able to install the OS, you'd be best asking for assistance in an Ubuntu specific forum.

thanks,
Lonni

Hey man, I've got the same problem, but I'm using nForce 570 based system. I think it's the SLI, as apposed to the chipset that's the problem.
