HP G60 with no OS black screen on launch.


Sep 12, 2014
Hi all, I have an old laptop (an HP G60) that no longer has an OS as I decided to use the serial key on a PC build of mine. Today I pulled it out of the closet for the first time in months and decided to install Ubuntu on it. I've formatted and used the Universal USB Installer on a USB drive I had laying around. However the issue is whenever I boot up the laptop it lingers on a black screen with what appears to be a white underscore in the top left. Any idea on what I can do? Thanks :D

Here's a video showing my issue:
