    So I installed Ubuntu 5.10 and it works find when using it without a GUI but after i type in start x....a cursor will flash for like 4 seconds then freeze up. Any ideas? The live CD won't load on the computer either it freezes as well. The machine has XP running on it as well and that runs fine. Also the live cd runs fine on my laptop so I am not sure whats wrong with my desktop. It just freezes. Any ideas?

    What video card do you have? It sounds like a problem with video card drivers.
