If you are sure that the computer actually starts running when you
press the power on button, I think it indicates some sort of graphics
problem. Either software or hardware.
Can you get a standard Ubuntu install CD to boot into the CD's trial
If yes, we'll try troubleshooting the installed software's graphics
If no, we'll try troubleshooting hardware problems.
Best regards :o)
