...help please...

hi im just having trouble with running a Ubuntu live cd, i can get the initial dialogue box that asks if you want to instal or try ubuntu, but after i select try ubuntu the screen goes black exept f0r the mouse. i saw in another post that as long as the mouse is moving and not frozen your good, you just need to wait till the desktop comes out, (a side note if i connect to my wireless network before i select Try Ubuntu then some of the desktop comes up but it doesnt copletely come up, just blank boxes, and one time the icons came up but after that nothing happened.) ive waited for hours and nothing really comes up... help will be greatly apreciated.
