I tried to install Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS from a DVD to delete my current Windows 10 System. In the bootmenu after I clicked "Try Ubuntu" the OS leads me straight to the Login Screen. After I entered "Ubuntu" as username and left the password field blank it says:

The system is running in low-graphics mode

Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected >correctly. You will need to configure these yourself.

Later it asks me:

What would you like to do?

  1. Run in low graphics mode for just one session?
  2. Reconfigure graphics
  3. Troubleshoot the error
  4. Exit to console login

I took the first answer and it showed me a little messagebox after it.

Then after the screen turned black and never reacted again.

I had to restart my PC manually.

I tried it with a Live-USB-Stick too. But it was even worse because whenever I entered "Try Ubuntu" it leads me straigh to the Login-Screen too but it flashes everytime and I can't use the Login screen to type something in.

I had to restart my PC manually too.

My Specs are: Windows 10 8GB RAM NVIDIA GTX 750TI AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core Processor

Did I burned the DVD wrong and did I mess with the Live-USB up?

(Sorry for grammar and spelling mistakes if you find some of them. English is not my mother tongue.)
