I bought SONY VAIO vpcs13v9e to use as a Linux laptop but I cannot install Fedora 14 or Ubuntu 10.10. I get full black screen. I don't know what to do. My machine has Win 7 64bit on it. Wubi didn't work for 32 and 64 iso files. I also booted directly from Fedora and Ubuntu CD, same result.
On Ubuntu you may want to try 10.04 LTS which has a 3 years support and a stable version. But also take note that reading a Linux CD might take some time and it just show black screen. Check whether the DVD/CD drive is reading the CD and whether the DVD/CD light is blinking while reading. Mine took about 10 minute before I can see the logo. Just be patience.
