What was the factory-installed OS if any? Jack E/NJ
if you live boot and get a blank screen...try this: boot from the stick and when you get to the "try ubuntu without installing" bit, hit "e" and replace "quiet splash" with "nomodeset" then hit F10 and see what happens (I had a blank screen on a live boot a while back and this got to live boot part) ((using uefi mode and personally i disable secure boot)) and when installing, make sure to check "install 3rd party..." box
