System Installation – How to Install Ubuntu on Lenovo G580


I'd like to install Ubuntu 13.04 on Lenovo g580 and I have this issue.
After a few seconds of booting liveUSB screens gets black and nothing happens.
I've read somewhere about connecting second screen to solve similar issue.
Of course this didn't solve it, but it provided something like terminal with


and few basic commands ..

Is it possible to install Ubuntu on Lenovo g580 hardware?
I also checked

Ubuntu 12.04: failed

Mint 13: SUCCEED (x32 and x64)

Is it because of drivers?
Of course I want Ubuntu instead of Mint. 🙂

Try hitting Fn+ several times. I've found that the display is actually turned on, only the backlight is at minimum.
