I've got an HP ThinClient that my computer dumped in the recycling pile. I swapped out the ATA 1-gig flash drive, and replaced it with a 60 gig ATA hard drive. I installed Ubuntu on it through a flash-drive, and everything comes up just fine. When I boot up the computer, I get the ubuntu screen, it comes to the login, I select my username and enter my password. I hear the little jingle music, and then the computers graphics get messed up. I still see the mouse, and it appears as though I'm opening windows, but they come up really as just screwed up boxes that are black or other colors and the graphics get all distorted.

I just figured out how to get into the GRUB menu, and I was able to boot in reduced graphics mode. verything seems to be in 16 colors, but I can actually log in now and see everything! (really cool). Just to give an update, I can log into the computer using rescue mode, and I can do everything on the computer that I want to in 16-color mode or whatever that mode is. As soon as I reboot in the normal mode, the graphics mess up as SOON as I log in.
