I got antsy earlier today and decided to go ahead and try to install the Beta version of Ubuntu 9.10 since it looked like it would be a pretty straightforward upgrade for a novice user.
However, I walked away while it was downloading and installing the updates and when I came back an hour or so later, I couldn't get my computer to display anything. My monitor just looked like it had lost connection with the computer, as if it were asleep.
So, I just decided to restart the computer. Now, I see the standard Ubuntu loading screen, but then after that, the screen goes blank and all I see is a flashing underscore.
I looked at some of the known issues here
and everything that was talked about was WAY over my head it seemed. Anybody have any suggestions for me to get back on track? Either making the Beta install work, or rolling back to the 9.04 stable release work as well.
Thanks a lot,
