"know just wont boot" -- could be a keyboard problem! :P

Where does it stop in the boot sequence when you turn on boot messages? Has Windows messed with the loader? Does Windows boot? What does the boot selector give you as options? What did you do just before it stopped booting? Boot from the live CD or a USB stick and examine the logs.

Best was to TRY Ubuntu is to install Wubi. No repartitioning necessary as the Linux filespace is then contained in a large Windows file which you can delete.

it passes the boot selection screen (where you select either one of five ubuntu options or windows) loads the ubuntu boot screen then just hangs! windows 7 loads ok otherwise i wouldn't be typing this!

So... have you tried booting in recovery mode? Unplug any USB devices.

Disable the splash screen so you can read the boot messages.

      Northumberland's public health chief has urged residents to follow the new North East lockdown restrictions with coronavirus 'spreading like wildfire' across the county.
      The tougher rules will come into force from midnight on Wednesday, affecting about two million people across Newcastle, Northumberland, Gateshead, North Tyneside, South Tyneside, Sunderland and County Durham, in a bid to stop the soaring number of Covid-19 cases.
      The new measures will mean that people from different households will be banned under law from mixing indoors in any setting, including pubs or restaurants, and will face fines of up to £6,400 for doing so.
      However, it will not be illegal to meet up with friends from another household in a beer garden – though it will be against public health advice to do so.
      Latest figures revealed all seven authority areas in the region have recorded an increase with cases up 79% to 2998 in the week leading to September 25 from 1324 in the previous seven days.
      The number of Covid-19 cases in Northumberland more than doubled to 450 in the same week – the equivalent of 139.6 cases per 100,000 people. This is up from 196 cases (60.8) in the week previous.
