Caps lock is cruise control for cool!

That aside...

Check the HCL. Your hardware may not be compatible.

Hello

Have you tried the Ubuntu live cd (so without really installing Linux) or an other live cd like http://www.knoppix.org/? Did it work? Are there error messages?

Bye

Hi, You say that you have an AMD 64 system I assume that this is a 64 bit processor. If it is you will need a 64 bit version of Ubuntu. Look at www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/download in the middle of the page you can select whichever version you require, or ask for a free disc to be sent to you.

That's not true. A 64-bit system is fully capable of natively running a 32-bit OS. It's completely backwards-compatible. He just doesn't get the (almost non-existent) benefit of a 64-bit processor. Also, 64-bit versions are often more trouble then they're really worth.

If you can get another motherboard, great.


If not, just keep an eye on things. The linux community has a tendency to find workarounds for things like this quickley... its possible your motherboard might magically find its way onto the compatibility list after a few kernel releases
