    Have a look at the output of dmesg, and in /var/log. Those places should give you some info on what's going wrong.

    Be sure to disable your built-in wireless; I've had interference with that and my USB wifi card. As for your USB wifi card, will it go into monitor mode & pass an aireplay-ng packet injection test?
