Screen goes to sleep before install


Hi all,

I am attempting to install the latest Ubuntu release on a brand new box that does not have an existing OS on it from a CD burnt from the download. The only problem is that I see some of the boot-up screens, then my monitor goes into power save mode and cannot be persuaded to come out of it. The install is doing something because if I press enter the CD spins up again like it's moving on through the process... I just have no idea what it's doing, which is less than ideal.

Anybody know what I can do?
