Comment 9 for bug 459198

I've got a Compaq 615 RM-74 and I was able after some reboots to launch the LiveCD and install Ubuntu.

However, since it's installed, it doesn't even show the white pulsing ubuntu logo screen. Everything just stops... the disk, etc.

I've tried adding noapic to grub using the inline editing option, I tried nolapic, nothing works.

I've got 9.10 32 bit LiveCD, md5 checksum fine, nicely burnt (I've used it to install ubuntu on 2 other laptops, just fine).

I just get a blank (backlight black) screen, no blinking underscore or anything...

I'm going to try and update BIOS, but I don't know if that'll help at all....
