Trying to run ubuntu

I downloaded ubuntu today followed the burn to disc and i got that all done, then i put it in my dell desktop running default with xp, i restarted it and i got ubuntu to come on the screen, and i wanted to just try it and so i  clicked try without installing anything, and it went to the ubuntu logo with the loading bar underneath it, the bar just scrolled across and across then finally loaded fully, and the display went blank and then it acted like it was restarting in ubuntu and then the screen just stayed black, Please help i cant figure it out. Thank you,  Kodi Fletcher

It sounds like Ubuntu chose a screen resolution that your monitor doesn't support. For the sake of sanity, I would a reboot and then try booting to Windows to ensure that what camone311 suggests happened isn't so -- I doubt it, as the install process is more involved than just 1 click - there are SEVERAL variables (time, date, username, passwords, how much of the hard drive to use, etc) that have to be set before anything is written to the hard drive.

If you're able to boot to Windows, then I would boot back to the CD and give it another go. At the menu where it says Try Ubuntu... there's an option to change the graphics modes - I would try safe graphics mode or VESA to see if that fixes the black screen problems that you were having.

Hi,
Its your good decision to try linux.
I would like to suggest you to try Ubuntu linux as this supports most of the hardwares.

Download latest ubuntu for the below link
http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/10.10/ubuntu-10.10-rc-desktop-i386.iso
After downloading, write the ISO image to a cd which will be a bootable cd.

place the disc in your drive, restrt you machine.
Boot your pc from this ubuntu cd.

you will get the live ubuntu (no need to install) or even you can install if you want.

Kernel is common for all the linux and it s core operating system file.

I hope this is useful to you
please rate the solution provided.
thanks

I have got a dell latitude c610 computer +it is cumin on with the dell logo but is then sayin that windows has shut dwn 2 protect it,i dont have a disk,iv lookled online2c if ny thing can b downloaded but...


Hi.

You need to reinstall the system using the licence number on the sticker usually placed at the bottom side of the laptop.

Microsoft does not distribute replacement disk to reinstall OEM licenced Windows, so that you will need to find a disk.

If you want to purchase a new licence, you can get one from the Dell store.

A common way to proceed is downloading a disk with the operative system corresponding to the version on the sticker (eg. Windows XP Home), and reinstalling the system.

This practice is not endorsed by Microsoft, but it is not illegal, providing that you use a genuine licence number valid for installation on this computer.

THis is the operation performed also at local computer shops to reinstal OEM operative system.

The operation is done for a small fee at computer shops. A good option would also be having the job done at a local shop.

If you want to DIY, you will need a Windows install disk of the same version printed on the licence sticker.

A way to get the disk is by downloading the disk. Please be aware that most persons making the download available are breaking the law by also providing invalid licence numbers or programs to disable Windows Validation procedure. If you decide to download the disk, also be aware that software distributed in this way may contain viruses.
In no case use a licence that does not belong to your computer genuine license, or does not come from a genuine Microsoft system COA sticker that can be installed on your computer.

To download the disk you will need at least three programs:

1) a p2p downloader: µTorrent

2) a p2p search utility: Convivea - Bit Che

2) a CD/DVD burning utility: Free CD/DVD burning

Install the downloader, then the search utility. Search a Windows disk for your same version. Choose one that does not offer crack or validation cheating. Download may take over one day to complete.
When download is complete burn a CD by installing CD burning software.

Start the C610 with the Windows disk inside and reinstall Windows.

After installing the operative system you will need to download and install all the software drivers listed here.

The operation is quite complicate, and system reinstall is suggested to an advanced computer user.

If you have not done anything similar before, better taking the laptop to a shop, or contacting Dell to arrange a repair. This will also exclude the risks related to download of not verified ( and often non-legal) software using P2P.

Repair cost at t shop starts at about $50.

Regards.

Lost disk for d-link router


Also, if you do a IPCONFIG/all in command prompt (Start, Run, CMD). you can note down the Default Gateway address.

then put that into a Web browser and you will be on the Login page for your Router. If you remember the user name & password you can go in that way and secure it.

the default usr name & password is listed at this Link:
http://www.phenoelit-us.org/dpl/dpl.html

go to the exact model #. and use the defaults. If that doesn't work (you may have changed the defaults & forgotten it)

go to the following support site and download the Latest drivers or software you need.
http://support.dlink.com/downloads/

Good luck,
