Linux refuses to install?

Link to this post 10 Jun 09

I've had no trouble installing Linux before, but lately, when I put in a LiveCD, it just stops loading it about halfway through. And by that, I mean, my whole computer becomes unresponsive.

Which LiveCD distro are you using?

What is the last thing you see on the screen before/when it seizes up?

Ubuntu 9.04 and Fedora 11. Tried both. And Ubuntu just stops about half an inch up the loading bar at the boot screen (not installed) and Fedora 11, it stops about 3/4 of the way up the logo.

I've had problems with some of the LiveCD's myself. Ubuntu and other Ubuntu like start the same way, I used a crunchbang linux live cd to install crunchbang on my dell 4550 an old p4 machine.
it's build on Ubuntu but doesn't boot the same way.
