My friend tried installing Ubuntu on my notebook (Asus g75v) and nothing worked. At one point he went past the installation screen and every he used the mouse the screen flickered and the driver crashed (I assume) and it would go back a step, I heard that there is way to install ubuntu without any graphics, maybe that will help me with the screen flickering (I have a gtx 670m).

So we tried WUBI installer, I tried installing with that and it gave me a Wubildr.mbr missing error, so I gave that up after several times, although I do notice that I have an intel driver, and I keep downloading AMD versions, does that effect anything? I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu and I wish to be able to run it on my laptop.

I want to learn this OS and I cannot even install it, I am a bit concerned. Can anyone help me with this?

Have you tried setting "NOMODESET"? –  John Oct 20 '12 at 4:07
welcome aboard, please, please, read the FAQ entry on how to ask (preferably before posting such questions). –  Eliran Malka Oct 20 '12 at 4:08
@John, i believe the proper question would be: do you know what "NOMODESET" means? –  Eliran Malka Oct 20 '12 at 4:11
Ok, I see what you mean now. I'll try to be more clear next time. –  John Oct 20 '12 at 4:15
Sorry I cannot find where to "post" questions properly, I will edit my post if I find out, are you able to tell me where to find the right way to post a question? –  Dragos Oct 20 '12 at 4:16
