    black screen after install reboot


    for the past few days i been trying to install linux mint 15 cinnamon but every time the installation is done and reboot all i get is a black screen. But for some reason every time i install Ubuntu it works fine but also when i try to install any other distro other than ubuntu all i get is a black screen on reboot.

    *I'm using a laptop with amd chip 64 bit, radeon graphics

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    After booting have you tried pressing Ctrl-Alt-F2 to switch to a text console and login screen? If that works, you may be able to install the correct driver.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
