Why ubuntu doesnt boot?

Hello friends.
I am new with ubuntu when I finished installing it and I reboot it I select Ubuntu in the menu and when the ubuntu logo appears the scroll bar moves only a little bit and then it stops there, and never initiate ubuntu. thats my problem

I think that this can be produce by the Wifi card. Is a Linksys card.

Thank you very much.

Maybe you can switch int verbose mode with esc - that should show you some detail.
Or if you choose "recovery mode" or something like that at boot.
Look where it hangs - write that line down and post it here.

If not - everything else I can tell you would require me to type quite a lot, so let's hope Plan A works.

Try to switch into other terminals using CTRL+ALT+F1, CTRL+ALT+F2, CTRL+ALT+F3 or CTRL+ALT+F4.

One of these terminal should show console having status of services. This may help to figure which service is causing problem.
