Black screen after boot in Ubuntu 9.10

Asked by Daniel

          I installed Ubuntu 9.04 with wubi in Windows, and it worked just fine. I decided to upgrade to the 9.10 version, I restarted the computer after the upgrade. When it booted I just watched the white Ubuntu logo, and after that a black screen appeared. The OS doesn't load, because I cannot hear any sound, and if I press ctrl+alt+f1...6 (to load terminal mode) nothing happens. So I decided to uninstall it from Windows, and I downloaded the 9.10 cd, and make a clean installation with Wubi. It happened the same (the os makes nothing). I've also waited some time, to see if something happened, but it was the same. When I booted from the live cd, and chose to try the OS, also the black screen appeared, and nothing happened.

          My computer is a HP Pavilion dv2000 with an Intel Dual Core Processor, and an Intel 945 graphics card. I hope someone could help me. Thanks.

If you're ready to give another try, you may download the Ubuntu alternate install cd. It may help overcome your problems.

Could it be bug 431812? I've linked it to here but not sure where the link shows up.

I don't think it's bug 431812, because with me not even the live cd works. I've downloaded it twice, and I checked the cd for errors, and it was fine. I've seen in some forums that I have to put i915.modeset=0, but I don't know how, because I can't enter into console mode, as it seems the os doesn't load.

Ignore the above
If you have the same issue with the live CD it is probably unrelated to wubi.
When you boot the first time after windows, press ESC after selecting "ubuntu" and select one of the other boot options.

Can you help with this problem?
