Hi kyfalcon,

Since you are VGA...

Connector = VGA
Audio Settings = S
Video Settings = 1024 768/60
Architecture = i386
Extra Parameters = 0
TV Standard = 1024x768
Release = 710
Video Card = Standard Video
Sound Card= Standard Sound Card
Hardware Acceleration = xv

...try these settings/ update the MD and reboot.

Don't wory to much about the video settings...if you don't like them change them later if it comes up.

If it does boot up it might want to run its orbiter and this can take up to 10-20 minutes.

Just to let anyone who might run into this problem know how I finally fixed this.

It was a problem with the system wanting to communicate with the on board graphics card that would hose the startup. I fixed it with these instructions.

1. Remove the add-on graphics card and boot into your ubuntu install as normal.

2. Open terminal and enter the following without quotes:

"sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist"

3. Add the following two entries without quotes to the end of the file:

"blacklist agpgart"
"blacklist intel_agp"

4. Shutdown the pc and reinstall the add-on graphics card.

5. Connect monitor to add-on card and boot pc.



Hope this might help someone with a similar problem.
