Another question here. I installed Ubuntu (12.04 I thing, the ones with the LT support?), was previously using Windows 7. Now when I boot, I get the option to use Windows 7 or Ubuntu, but when I select Ubuntu nothing happens - just a black screen. I then have to power off by holding down the power switch and select Win 7?
Any ideas?
