May I know what is the graphic specs in your Dell Laptop N5110? I’m asking you this because there is an issue with the integrated NVIDIA NVS 3100M graphics card with kernel NVIDIA drivers, absolutely you will experience a black screen when installing Ubuntu 10.04.

NVIDIA graphic cards has a default bug in nouveau open source drivers. By fixing these black screen problem, you need to hit ESC and F6, alternately install 10.04 with media and no x, Use nouveau. Modest=0 on the boot command if card graphics in NVIDIA. When booting into text mode install the NVIDIA drives, then modify.
