Might be the kernel(the part that communicates with the simplest software layers of your computers). The "kernel" might not recognise your hardware. I would recommmend installing Ubuntu 14.04 or 12.04 instead, or just sticking with Linux Mint.

Here is one possibility: When You installed Ubuntu, you may (or may not) have been asked about installing grub bootloader to the MBR (Master Boot Record) or a partition. If grub was not installed to the MBR during the Ubuntu install, it will not boot the new install.

To fix this possibility, boot into Mint. Open a terminal and execute this command:

sudo update-grub

This should find all OS's installed on various partitions, and add entries to /boot/grub/grub.cfg . Rebooting should show a Grub Boot screen with a list of boot choices including the Ubuntu.
