I gav encountered this prob while i was helping my frnds install UBUNTU......then i found out they had low RAM.....but if ur patient n wait for a lil longer it does work on som comps.....its better u upgrade ur RAM....
If it is getting past the boot and the meter goes across the screen and then it goes black, then it could be a video card problem. I have seen the live cd do that but work fine after installing. Try hitting F4 and selecting "safe mode" at the boot time, right after you select the language.
U can instal ubuntu on windows :) so u wil have dual boot system start ur win insert cd chose instal inside win the wen finishing just restart ur pc and u'll be able to choose from win either ubuntu :)

This will give instructiosn on how to load and install from said USB.
You will need:
A working computer with Windows
A 2GB or larger USB stick
After you've made your USB stick, when booting up the computer you wish to install ubuntu on be sure you have the USB stick inserted when powering it on. When the start screen comes up press ESC to enter the BIOS or boot order. Select the USB stick from within the BIOS boot order menu, or the USB stick from the boot options menu.
If you are connected to a network or internet you can do a net install
he network installer lets you install Ubuntu over the network. This is useful, for example, if you have an old machine with a non-bootable CD-ROM or a computer that can't run the graphical interface-based installer, either because they don't meet the minimum requirements for the live CD/DVD or because they require extra configuration before the graphical desktop can be used, or if you want to install Ubuntu on a large number of computers at once.
the Ubuntu ISO that you choose for you pc needs to be selected (x86 for normal 32 bit pc or x64 for 64bit devices ) download the ISO and burn to cd or DVD your choice. when you running XP insert the disk and it gives you a option to install aside xp or to partition the drive to add ubuntu separately or to do a clean install ( wiping everything ) or boot up with it and it will help partition the XP drive to install alongside xp to do a dual boot.. this can be easy or hard id get a tutorial on this. but the clean install is the easiest and best it wipes out the drive and I'm almost sure everything will work when it comes on look up the model laptop and ubuntu 11.04(newest ) all my devices work all the time and the software is awesome as well as free and virus free good luck google installing ubuntu for noobs
Insert the CD in the CD/DVD drive.
ON your keyboard, press and hold the button with a Windows icon on it (like a wavey flag). Keeping the Windows button pressed, press the E button. This opens Windows Explorer.
You can also right-click on the Windows start button at the bottom left of the screen and select Explore.
In the Explorer window, double-click on the CD/DVD drive to see the files on the CD. You need to find a file which may be called SETUP or INSTALL or there may be a file called AUTORUN. Try double-clicking on the SETUP or INSTALL file. The AUTORUN file holds information about which file to run when the CD is first inserted into the drive.
Be advised that the games you are trying to install are quite old and may not work with Windows 7.
It depends. If the "partitioning" used the entire disk-drive, rather than "preserving" the existing partition in which Windows was loaded, then you need to re-install Windows.
Either use the set of "System Restore" CD-ROM disks that were provided with your computer,
or telephone the manufacturer and order a replacement set of those disks (probably $20, plus $20 for overnight courier). Or, borrow a "retail" Windows XP CD-ROM, and install Windows,
using the 25-character product-key on the decal on the side/bottom of your computer.
Just insert the CD in your hard drive and wait for the splash screen, but if it does not appear, open up explorer and go to your CD drive folder and find autorun. Doubleclick on that so the splash screen appears. It has the choices and options for installation. Another way is to go to your BIOS and make your PC boot to your CD drive, then insert CD in drive and restart. It will come up with the Ubuntu live installation.
