I tried to install Ubunto 12.10 from a flashdrive onto 2 different computers and it boots. The Os is working because I can choose to Try or Install.
It goes into the flashing-dots sequence, the blank screen sequence, then the colored screen, and that's where it stays.
The USB mouse works. I rebooted and tried the options(except the HHD thing) and all were ok but the Install choice won't install.
I believe I have a Unity Desktop.
This post is on Ubuntu 12.04 LST- which was recently installed on a 3rd computer and I'm learning on it.
To add, when I attempted to boot 12.10 into this computer from a flashdrive, the computer freezes on the first screen.
The HDD already has XPpro and 12.04 on it. If I remove the flashdrive, this computer boots and I can choose between microsoft or Ubuntu. aki

Not sure exactly what your asking but it sounds like you have installed Ubuntu 12.10 on 2 computers but a 3rd computer is giving you video issues?

Have a look here and see if that helps, hardware and drivers aren't as compatible as in Windows, you might need to use your console to fix this; http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Ubuntu_Quantal_Installation_Guide

Good luck,
