comment Ubuntu 15.04 Suspend not working. System resumes automatically a few seconds after suspend
This can be caused by many, many different combinations of factors relating to the hardware firmware, kernel drivers, graphics card, etc. It may or may not have anything to do with Ubuntu itself. I've had this problem with 2 different laptop models and both were traced to upstream kernel bugs that were not fixed until later releases. You should file a bug report on launchpad. Be sure to provide the hardware details. My experience is that this kind of bug report is taken seriously.

comment Uninstall Ubuntu installation which resides in windows partition
Use Windows add/remove programs in control panel to remove ubuntu or run the wubi uninstaller listed in your image above. Then it's safe to delete the ubuntu folder and any remnants you find. Using the control panel or the uninstaller is important in order to restore the windows bootloader. Someone just asked a similar question. See askubuntu.com/questions/636906/go-back-to-windows

I'm voting to close this. If you insist that you did not use wubi, then it's not possible for anyone to provide an answer that you will accept.

comment Can't change libreoffice spell-check language
@Rodrigo If you're using ibus, there's a setting to use the same input method in all windows (which is default) or to allow differnt im's in different windows. But you should ask a new question rather than using the comments. ;)

comment Is there a way to debug install problems?
How much ram do have and how old is the chip? When the install is running, use <ctrl>+<alt>+F1 through F6 to look at the consoles. On one fo these (F4, I think) you may see a message explaining why the install can't proceed.

comment My laptop has no operating system is it possible to download Ubuntu into my phone and transfer it to my laptop?
Do you have a friend who can download and burn install media for you? Also look for a linux user group in your area. Or use the phone to order pre-made installation media from Canonical or one of the companies that advertise at distrowatch. These are usually around $5 USD, if that's possible for you. If the phone is Android, it might be possible to install a terminal app that might let you download an iso, then use dd to burn it to a mounted usb. There are several Android apps that let you install linux tools.
