    Nope.. Coz i've been told that the newer releases from ubuntu arent always the best at the start, i prefer to go on with maverick and what i know of it works 100% or emm lets say 99% or else i wouldn't be writing this thread hire ..

    But i think its something with ASUS it self somthing with the hardware..Maybe im wrong..i dont know..
    Use 10.04. It is supported until 2015.

    Have you tried installing via the "alternative" image?



    Last ditch effort you can try these flags, they worked well for me on earlier releases.

    Code:
    noapic irqpoll noirqdebug

    I think your Acer has an AMD processor and your Asus has an Intel, so you need a different install disk, maybe, possibly.

    The processor that was mentioned in the OP can run 64-bit code, so it really wouldn't matter if they used a 32-bit or 64-bit image.

    Hello,

    I hate to necro this thread, but I do have a similar machine and was able to install 11.10 with both acpi=off and nomodeset selected (simply having one or the other does not work). So I hope this helps anyone who searches for a solution in the future..
