Hello,
I have Toshiba Satellite laptop with windows 7, while downloading Linux Mint 17 it started to downloading it, but it was very slow. I notice that it got up to 9% then all of sudden I got the black screen.
Was I suppose to partition the hard drive? could these then be the problem with the black screen?
I would appreciate some suggestion as how to proceed with this problem.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Try this 1

1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to

get "Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc"

key and keep tapping the F8 key)

Select the option "Last known Good Configuration"

2) If the problem still exists then follow Step 1 and this time select

"Repair Your Computer" and follow the onscreen instructions.

Good Luck
