I decided that I wanted Ubuntu 13.04 on my computer. I had previously installed 12.10 LTS, and it worked right out of the box with no problems.
Later got bored of it, then formatted the entire drive blank. I let it blank for ~ 2 months. Then, I decided to install Ubuntu 13.10.
I burned it to my USB flash drive, using Universal USB Installer. The burn process was completed successfully.
Then I booted it successfully. I went into live CD mode to install Ubuntu from it. I selected install and it was pretty much straight forward by then. After the successful install with no errors whatsoever I clicked to reboot my system. I took out the flash drive, then booted. It loaded successfully to the GRUB Menu.
But when I choose to boot Ubuntu, it just goes to a blank purple screen. It stays like that forever. You may ask me to check the recovery mode and type some commands right?
- When I select to boot from ubuntu in recovery mode it also does a blank purple screen. - I try booting the memory test. Also a purple screen.
- I try to type
gfxmodeline, still purple screen on Ctrl+X. I type
nomodeseton the quiet splash line, still boots purple screen.
- I remove quiet splash and do the same, still purple screen.
- I tried reinstalling multiple times, the last Ubuntu version that my PC last worked on is 12.10 and 12.04. Once I install 13.04 same results as described above. 13.10 and 13.04 don't work at. They both exactly have the above mentioned symptoms.
I don't know what to do next to fix this error. I can't run recovery or pretty much anything. I request some help on my problem.
How to fix this?

Inspiron 15r N5010
