I am getting a blank screen after I boot with either the USB or DVD. It is a good .iso as I tried it on other machines, it is not installed as yet, it is just the LiveCD/USB. After I type in 'startx' it runs 2 commands, says loading and blank screen. Can you enlighten me as to what the problem is and how I can fix it.

I am using an IBM ThinkPad Edge 15, Pentium i3 Processor, 8GB DDR3 SODIMM RAM, Intel 160GB SSD, Intel Onboard Graphics.

I don't know what the problem is and I don't want to enter any command that can just wipe the drive. HELP!!!
