Ubuntu 10.10 live cd immediately giving a blank screen

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to Linux in general. I've used Mint a couple times to try to recover my old computers, but I only worked with it as long as I needed to. Now, I'm going to give Ubuntu a try so I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and burned it to a DVD. When I try to boot it up with the DVD in, it does the startup screen that I'm used to before it loads the actual OS, and then it just gives me a blank screen. The only way to exit is to shut down the computer. Hoping someone can help me! I will provide any other information thats needed to help
