Problems Installing Ubuntu on a 965 chipset

I am having problems installing my ubuntu distribution on my machine.

I have an ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard which is a 965 chipset.

When i try to install it, all it does is sit at a black screen with the cursor flashing. I am very new to linux. IS there some kind of patch to get it to work with the 965 chipset.

thanks in advance

This HCL(Hardware Compatibilty List) is for the Asus P4P800-E Deluxe, might be close to what you have:

Check out the other hardware in your system:

Not sure it is your hardware that is the problem, you might have a bad cd you are installing from.

When i try to install it, all it does is sit at a black screen with the cursor flashing.
This is all you see? You do not get to the installation screen? If you don't get past a cursor, and no installation screen, then it is probably a bad cd. Did you download it yourself and burn it as an "image file"?

Hope this helps you in moving in the right direction.
