I have the same lap K53SM-SX130D (India). I had ran into the same problem and have hence succesfully installed 11.04. Bumblebee (nvidia Optimus for Linux).
Do these while booting from cd give these boot options acpi=off noapic nolapic.
Even though I'm now running only with nolapic.
Then I selected text install and installed a base system with X
I believe lightdm & plymouth has issues so don't install both
install gdm and gnome classic. I don't like unity!
I am still having problem with plymouth so hasn't installed that also.
If after install you are having problems with booting. My system used to hang.
Press e in grub menu and add the boot options
Then once inside os edit /etc/default/grub
or give the complete as given on install cd boot
Warning: acpi off means you will lose all power saving/optimizing features
Hope this helps
