Not booting correctly - ASUS M51TA-X2 w/ ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
I have tried Ubuntu 8.04 for 32 bit and AMD64, and every few days try the latest alpha or daily build of 8.10 for AMD64 and 32 bit...nothing has worked yet.
This is a an ASUS M51 Series M51TA-X2 NoteBook with AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM-82(2.20GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA+ 4GB Memory 250GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
Here is where it was purchased, with some specifications available:
Here are some threads on ubuntuforums that relate to this machine:
The display will go blank shortly after choosing to "try ubuntu without changing my computer" or trying to go into the install process from the CD or DVD (I've tried both).
I understand that this machine has *both* integrated graphics with an ATI 3200 and another graphics system based on the ATI 3650 for higher performance, when desired.
I do not know if the problem is with video drivers or support of some other elements, or a combination thereof.
We were able to do an install using Sun VirtualBox 2.02 on top of Windows Vista on this very same machine...it works fine.
