Thank you for the response.
Before when i tryed to boot normaly, it would lock up about 5 seconds or so into the splash screen. I just tryed the VGA mode from the f8 menu and it locked up soon as the splash screen apeared. The computer uses onboard graphics, idk if that makes a difference.
I just tryed to boot into ubuntu from a live disk and it failed. Lets me select the mode at the beginning but wont load desktop. Im stumped.
I think its just a driver
issue with linux as to why my ubuntu wont load. Its a slim line cd-rom.
