I'm using my school computer and I'm trying to boot using a live Ubuntu cd

SO when my computer starts up I press F9, which brings me to to boot screen It asks me if I want to boot from the hard drive or optical disc drive, which I then click. Well it seems to load for a minute but then the screen goes black and the only thing I see is what looks like a blank command prompt. It then goes back to booting Windows 7. Need help, now.

Ubuntu Download

From where did you get the boot CD? Is it legitimate? Double check the Ubuntu Live CD by booting with Windows 7 computer and explore CD ROM.

I strongly suspect that Live CD isn't good enough to boot your computer and you may have to make another one. Moreover, try restoring BIOS settings to default by pressing F10(Press 'Yes' when asked to save).

Good luck though!!
