Freezing at login screen
I recently installed ubuntu 12.04.3, using wubi. Once it goes to the login screen it freezes and the screen turns purple. I have tried installing other distro's using a bootable usb and it gives me the same exact problem. Thanks for your help in advance

Some hardware is not fully compatible and Wubi will freeze upon booting (ACPI) and/or you may experience video problems. Those are not Wubi specific issues. There are generally special parameters that are required to enable workarounds for such hardware. Refer to this support thread for more information.Video Problems after second reboot
If you experience problems after installation, press "Ctrl+Alt+F2" and run:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
Select the VESA driver and leave all other options at default. Then reboot. That will allow you to boot into a safe graphics mode (limited resolution) you should then be able to install the appropriate drivers or try other solutions as needed.
Good Luck and Happy Trails, Rok
