We have more slots available for talks, get in touch if you're

I have an HP AiO 18 which runs Ubuntu 14.10 successfully.
It is my first attempt at Debian 7.6.0 under my x86_64 machine.
While the install process went well, the first boot just doesn't happen.
The boot-up menu is shown and when I select the first item;
Debian GNU/Linux, with Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64, the screen just blanks out.
There are no boot messages, nothing.
The num-lock indicator lights up and then goes out.
After waiting a while, I tried the caps-lock key, it's responsive by way
of the indicator going on and off.
On hitting ctrl+alt+del the system just reboots without going through
the usual system shutdown sequence.
Any ideas about how I could resolve this?
