Angry Ubuntu 10.04 upgrade, restart step black screen


so I have Ubuntu 9.10 on my Dell inspiron 1150 and I wanted to upgrade to 10.04. I do the upgrade with the update manager and it dose all the installing. It restarts and goes to the purple screen with the white and red dots for about a minute, then it goes to a blank screen and sits there. i let it sit over night and it still didn't do anything! I've tried booting from CD and it dose the same thing! its bugging the heck out of me! some help would be awesome!

I think that you can fix it with the "Alternate CD" (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Lu...ternateUpgrade), but i can be wrong :P

* try to find something related to it in the http://ubuntuforums.org/
