Problem with Ubuntu CD


Hi

I just bought a new Toshiba Satellite C650D which has AMD processor. For some rescuing, I wanted to put ubuntu live CD. Ubuntu starts with some screen but then it converts to text mode and just sit there. I have checked md5sum of the iso file I got , before burning it on the CD. After burning the image, I also checked the directory structure on the iso file and the CD. They are fine. Currently I am writing this from XP.
Please help, how do I use Ubuntu Live CD.

For burning, I used infrarecorder with 'Burn Image' option

I had installed debian and win xp with the same CD , so I can't see the problem with the CD.

Well, for the S&G's of it, I would try and boot another machine with it. If that works, you know for sure that the CD is fine. If it is, there are some menu choices you can consider on the ubuntu boot screen, i believe. Usually some options like diferrent graphics modes,.. try those.

I will try this with different CD.

Edit: I did try with the second CD, same problem. The CD's are memorex
CD-RW 700 MB 4X multi speed.

And I don't get the ubuntu boot screen at all. Some screen with ubuntu
symbol appears and then text mode with some information about the hardware and it hangs there.
